smart charge has gone and putting major amps into the battery causing it to boil do the dash test and check the voltage it shouldnt be above 14.5 i suspect youres is far above that looks like a new alternators needed also make sure the battery is silver calcium not lead acid as this will also cause the battery to boil see here http://www.petercoop...rt_charging.htm
