Negative on battery melt down

WTH would cause that ? My car started to mess up today, in the same day the ABS, Brake light came on, car told me my tank was empty but was not, and my radio started to mess up. What can cause this ? Bad ground ? [IMG][/IMG]

That would be the positive terminal, but your question is valid. Looks like a loose connection of some sort, at least for a while - might have welded itself. Loose = only a little bit of contact = high resistance / heating / melting. Might have been as simple as not being tight. Right now it might still not be.

Ok so now I've closed the trunk and power completely went out, so I cannot open it. Do you have any idea how to open it ? I can't find a way

LOL classic, I have done it too. So you got the trunk open? If not there are ways. Sounds like it though but just to be sure.

And it was a loose connection?

If yes and yes - great!

Actually got it open with a battery pack and the positive under the hood. Just had to clean the melted mess, make sure everything was tight and the car came back to life like nothing happened. Only thing I had to do was a window relearn because it wouldn't go the 1/4 inch down when I opened it. Now everything is fine!
