GM - AC DELCO
GM And AC DELCO Battery Leak Caused Major Electrical Damage major damage to wire harness

Will NOT Take Blame leaking postive connection on battery caused acid to eat into electrical wiring - wires began burning and melting

I purchased a 2001 Cavalier used from Jon Hall in Daytona Beach, Florida in September 2002. The car still had the original battery from factory. On April 25, 2003 I had parked the car in my garage. When I went back out to the garage I noticed a terrible burning smell, and smoke was pouring out from under the hood of the car. The headlights were on even though the were turned off. I could not get the headlights to shut off, smoke was still coming out.

I disconnected the battery fuse to shut off the voltage to the lights and stop the burning. I tried to drive the car to the dealership but the wires began to burn again after replacing the fuse.

I called GM who had the car towed (supposedly at their expense) to the dealership. The GM certified mechanic stated this is a common problem with these batteries.

However, GM WILL NOT take responsibilty for the damage.

Had I not returned to the garage, my entire house would probably have burned along with the car.

This appears to be a major defect in these batteries and someone GM or Delco needs to accept the responsiblity for allowing this to continue.
