    Well, it only does it when you try to crank? Does the car even crank?

    Check the starter wires(both constant/battery and signal). They're pretty close to the body and if the signal wire or something is touching the body of the starter, it will cause a short. A short in the smaller wires would cause the wires to burn but the larger wires can carry more current.

    Well, there's two wires that go to the starter. One of them goes straight to the battery; that's the one with the bolt holding it on. The other just has a terminal and plugs into the solenoid-side(usually next to the battery/constant wire). If the terminal(signal) is touching the body; it would short only when you try to start it.

    I snapped a pic of mine; it'll look different from yours mainly because I have a bigger wire on there with the terminal boot off the signal wire.

    Big red wire is where constant goes(to the battery), and the black/red wire is the signal.

    Last pic is my brother's car, which is stock.
