ECM/PCM FRIED?? Possibly 12 pin?

Started smelling some melted plastic and looked to see that my ecm outermost plug was causing it. Pulled the plug out and was so bad that the charred plastic could scrape off with ease. The areas looked like it came from around the 12 pin area and radiated out so I’m not sure what could have caused it to char this severe.

I’ve got your standard light bars and winch hooked up with an arb compressor but doesn’t come near any of it that I know of

Got another computer and plug on the way but I need to get to the cause of this first

To carry that amount of current to make that much heat those wires that will lead to your issue will also be melted. so peel back some of the covering on the wire harness and trace it back some.
