Tried starting my Thing which has been sitting awhile and the wire connecting to what I believe the diagram called the throttle bypass valve??? I could be a little off on the title there . But anyhow when you turned the key on the cover on the wire began​ smoking and melting away? Anyone have ideas on what would cause this? Trying to sell the darn thing....no pun intended, and now all these issues!! Mad

I am assuming you are talking about the Idle Cutoff Valve. Either the wire to the valve has shorted out or the solenoid for the valve has grounded internally. Shouldn't be a big deal to find the problem and fix it, replacing the valve if need be.
