sparks and fire after shutting off
Well tonight i had an exciting experience. I move the truck to infront of the shed so i could load a few things up and when i shut it off there was a noise coming from under the truck. It was like a spinning noise. Well i got out and it kept going so i tryed to start the truck back up and it wouldnt start. I got out and got to looking and there were sparks and an orange glow coming from the starter. I grab a pair of pliers and popped the hood and undid the battery. which stopped the spinning noise and the sparks. i waited a few minutes and hooked the battery back up and the truck started up and ran just fine. I drove it around the yard moving some stuff and didnt have any more problems. I was just wondering what could have caused this and is there anything that i need to check on or replace?
