Hello and welcome badblknitro (Thomas), :wave: to the Nitro “Z” family!
Sorry it is under these circumstances. meder24 hit the nail on the head.
Your TIPM is bad. You may not have to "burn" the Nitro as it may do this on it's own. There are 4 documented cases here on the forum of TIPM smolders/fires. If you want to keep your rig, disconnect the battery till you replace the TIPM.
Always disconnect Neg (-) first then Pos (+), reconnect Pos (+) then Neg (-)!
NEVER disconnect the Pos (+) with Neg (-) still connected, and NEVER connect the Neg (-) without the Pos (+) already connected.

If you do it backward, you can fry the TIPM, as another member here learned the hard way...
See this post about TIPM replacements, and the links in it.

I'm looking forward to your future posts & Pics. We love Pics here!
We also like new Mod ideas. :smileup:
Enjoy the forumZ.

If you go to your User CP and fill in the details (Vehicle: ) info about your rig, the easier it will be for us to answer questions down the road, without us having to ask a bunch of questions. :thk:
As you can see in the upper right of every post I make;

This is what I drive:
Vehicle: 07 Lifted,4X4,6sp-man,3.7L
Trim Level: SXT
Color: Light Khaki Metallic
