Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
The battery went dead and while trying to jump start the car it arced and smoked.. Why would it do this?
Usually from weak,(small gauge wire) cables , improper hook-up,(backwards) or not connected good. If your vehicle has something stuck on that is drawing lots of power is a possibility too. Match them up + to +, and - to -. Do negative last.

There is a little fuse in the + cable going from the alternator to the battery, if you tried to connect it after the fuse is blown, the alternator could be damaged too...get an electrician to check it all out
