My car has 28 miles.

Hi there. It is possible that when you tried to jump start the car, the cables were reversed. This typically causes electrical faults within the cars electrical components like the alternator. It is also possible that there is an exposed wire that caused the sparks and smoke attached to the alternator. The first thing I would recommend is to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a battery won’t hold a charge inspection.
