Question about Cars & Trucks
When it was idling too fast, you were running your engine too hot and should have turned it off. That is probably what caused the wires on the starter to burn. Kyle McFadden says: "The usual cause of abnormally high idle speeds are vacuum leaks or an inoperative idle speed control " idle. The oxygen sensor will detect the extra oxygen that is entering the engine through the vacuum leak and will signal the computer the exhaust is lean. The computer in turn will then provide additional fuel which will result in an abnormally high idle.

I have ran into this problem at my shop. There are 3 things that could be bad. Idle air control valve, pcv valve or the vacum hose for the pcv valve. Vicually inspect the pcv vale hoses. If you dont see a tear, spray carb cleaner around the hose, if engine idle changes there is a vacum leak in hose some where. If pcv valve and hose are ok than its your idle air control valve. You can attempt to remove part and clean it but this is only a temporary fix, Good luck.

SOURCE: Won't start
Multiple issues here??
Why did the motor quit??
Did you check the engine control fuse box for issues? It is next to the battery?
The is an imprinted 'map' under the lid for direction. Check all fuses and relays and post back.
