Awhile back I posted here that I was having issues with my electrical system. About how my volts were dropping down to 10-11VDC. I tried a few things like even adjusting the idle with the AC on because thats when I noticed it most. Well earlier today I had a check engine light went off. The code stated random misfire and my voltage was going nuts. It even went down to "maybe" 6-8VDC then came back up with my throttle. So I got home, and was going to start trouble shooting coil packs and knowing in the back of my mind my altenator was going out too. I was bummed needless to say. It was then I noticed 1 of my wires were laying right ontop part of the exhaust.
I had LT installed 4 months ago. Anyway I'm think a burnt wire could have been the culprit for all my issues. random misfire.. and voltage issues. The only reason I'm posting this is because this websight has always been useful for me. Searches is always the way to go. So having said that here are the pictures.
You can see where the rubber started to cook, and where the voltage started to slowly arched and then finally conducted on the exhaust.
You can also see my wife's thumb nail, that she chipped while trying to pull the plug out.
Anyway I just wanted to share my findings.

yeah thats what I'm guessing from the look of the wire. However my car is 100% again. Windows seem to work abit faster too.
