    It didn’t explode, it just burned out. It’s been so long ago, I remember hearing something spinning, I pulled over, shut the truck off, it wasn’t spinning the engine. By the time I went to disconnect the batteries, it stop. Luckily I was on a slight slope that I dumped the clutch to get it started. After my delivery, I went straight the a truck shop that only did starters and alternators. He exchanged it, found the cable that cause the issue, replace it along with the starter and was on my way.
