Main cable from battery to starter can cause engine fire if cable cover is not 100% as it crosses starter.

If this cable shorts on the starter, it melts the plastic cable cover for this cable as well as the cable from the battery to the alternator. I have had both cables melt and one fire.

Solution was to replace both cables with new ones.
