Default Hey Guys I need some help....

My brother took off of the light today and didnt notice anything until about 200 yards down the road...The car lost power and shut off kinda like alternator when it goes bad after we went home got some jumper cables the car started fine but there was a ticking noise coming from underneath where the tranny and starter and bell housing is...It does it even when in park or gear...And as you press gas it speeds up....ANY IDEAS?????

Try it in the dark and see if you any sparks jumping around. Sounds kind of like a plug wire has burned through its insulation and is arcing.
