Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

The reason that this would get hot and cause this issue is because the starter motor is electrically failed and shorting out. The starter motor will need to be replaced to correct this issue.
