Default No electricity but hot battery

I was at oriley auto ato get some oil and a filter and when I left out of the store and tried to crank the truck the stsrter solenoid started buzzing really bad so I lifted the hood and tried to touch the two points on it and hot box it from there and that didn't work to the next thing I did was try to pop the clutch and it didn't work then either so now I call my dad and have him pull the ranger all the way to the house and I have no idea what it could be someone please help me

Run a 12volt jumper and ground straight to the starter motor and see if she'll crank if not the starter is shot.

Also check the main fuse box but a fuse should only blow if you have a direct short.

Well the fuses are all good and we just put a new starter on over the summer so I have a lifetime warranty on it but I'll try that today

Before you start blindly replacing parts, when don't you have your battery and alternator tested first.

if it did not start while pop starting it then it is most likely not the starter.

do as Fireranger suggested. if the alternator is shot and the battery is dead it would not pop start. Do the headlights work? did you try and jump it with cables?.. if those test are fine and it does not jump with cables suspect the ignition switch..........bad grounds can cause erratic issue too.

also clean and check your grounds. a bad ground will heat the terminals as well

I'm guessing dead-short inside the battery. Get the battery tested.

I have it fixed now. It was the terminals that were screwed up and the flywheel was bad or the teeth on it were so I had to get a new flywheel for it so it wouldn't mess the starter up again but thanks everyone for the info I learned alot from you guys

In less than 24 hours you had a flywheel installed?......do you have a manual or auto tranny?

These forums should require new members to pass a quiz before posting.....
