Question about 1996 Ford Probe
Sorry I can't so much for you on this one except tell you that you have a hot wire or cable grounding out somewhere. I obviously is a large power line since it melts the positive post when contact is made. Check the positive cable that runs down to the starter. It may have been pinched or possibly melted through the rubber case that encloses the cable. Follow the cable from the batery or soleniod down to the starter and check where it may have come into contact with the hot exhaust and melted through. Good luck I hope this gives you a good starting point. Let me know the outcome. I would be glad to help more if you need it.
