I was checking fluids the other day and noticed that the jump start connection is burned and and melted! I don't notice any electrical problems and not sure how long it's been like that. After driving for a half hour I was feeling the wire and it is quite warm.

Usual cause is loose connections there OR corrosion between parts (cables) there. Probably a dealer or MFG(usually dealer) website to replace that terminal block to repair the job the right way.

I wouldn't leave it that way long. Last thing you want is an under the hood fire. Don't park inside a building.

You have a short between positive and ground. Most likely a switch stuck closed or the starter is causing it to happen on start up.
