Man, I can’t remember what the smell was like (could have been either rubber or metal). Just got off the phone with the dealer rep again, said starter was probably “still engaged” when shorted. He clarified “engaged” meaning shorted out but still functioning/on/have power. Made no sense to me.
I’ll look for more documented info and go inspect vehicle with dealer later. Will ask for foreman.
