My '94 Samurai doesn't get driven much as I basically use it as a UTV. So I wasn't terribly surprised the battery was dead. I hooked up a battery charger and about 30 min. later I tried to start it. Dash lights came on and the starter clicked, but didn't start. So I let it go another 30 min. or so and came back and the alternator was smoking. Scared the crap out of me. I thought it would catch fire and a barn full of hay would go up in smoke. Does this sound like a short in the alternator? Or? I've never had this happen with any vehicle before. Thanx.
