2011 pilot with 66k. Lost all power while driving. Dealer said it was a bad battery cable and replaced it. Next morning, battery is dead. Replaced battery, started right up. Next morning new battery dead. Jump start car, 5 minutes later there is an arcing noise and a puff of smoke from engine. Shut car off immediately. Alternator tested good. Any ideas of what this could be?

Battery cable harness only connects to the positive side of the battery. Check ground/chassis/battery negative wires, especially any on the lower side of the engine block. Look for corrosion, bad connections, etc.

Took it to a local mechanic... found a loose connection at one of the main fuse terminals... like someone forgot to tighten one of them down all they way.
