I stopped at a convenient store on my way home from work prior to this my radio continue to turn off and on. When I went to start my Jeep back up it would not start and was smoking. I had it pulled to the dealership the next day and they told me that the starter wire had caught afire and fried the starter and possible the fuse box. Had I not stopped and continue to drive the other 15 miles home I would probably be dead. The car would have stalled on the highway in a construction zone where there would have been no place for me to pull off the highway and with no light any other car traveling the highway could have hit me and with me at a standstill and the speed limit 50 in the construction area I would possibly been killed or hurt severely. There was no warning just that the radio would cut off and on.
