Well Mike my first guess would be a cable that's going bad .... Corrosion has set in under the shrink wrap tubing..Take cable off and cut off shrink wrap tubing .... Inspect and repair if need ...

Turn the cable around to see if you move the problem ..... The cable to lug connection may be bad ... Heat means something is loose ... 2 gage cables should be able to carry all the amperage the motor needs with little to no heat ...

Is this a stock controller? A2 is the plug braking terminal.
