Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I have a question about a problem that has arisen with my vitara.

The other day I was 4x4ing in my vitara and all of a sudden loads of smoke came from under the dashboard and from under the bonnet.
I swtiched it off and opened up the bonnet and it looks like the positive terminal on the battery has shorted out on the bottom of the bonnet causing the memory wire for the stereo to burn out. I cannot see any other damage except a burn mark on the bonnet and the bolt on the positive terminal but when I start the car then switch the headlights on the car stalls, My question is: Would anyone know why the car is now doing that please? I really cannot afford to take it to an auto electrician.

Thanks in advance.

It is possible that the short took out other things. I'd be tempted to go through the replays, reckon there could be the answer. Hope this helps.

You could well have a burnt out alternator. Get it to a good auto spark before it goes up in flames. can you afford that?
