Positive side on the battery connector melted
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This is caused by too many amperes going through the wire with an overload or bad connection. You will need to get a voltage drop test done to test the starter and wiring. You may have a starter that is drawing too many amperes. To have this checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the electrical issue.
