Not sure which thread it was in but basically the B+ jump terminal under the hood was getting hot and was very corroded. The owner repalced the jump terminal with a new one, cleaned all the contacts and issue was solved.

It was also determined that on some cars the B+ from that battery actually connects to the alternator and the starter via this jump terminal, so it's electrical condition matters a lot.

Remeber to disconnect the battery B+ BEFORE goofing with the B+ jump terminal - or welding happens.
