[DML] Melted Fuse.

In troubleshooting a problem I had been having with exterior &
interior lights, I checked my fuses a second time and noticed that #8
had melted. I had this same problem before and it was only
intermittent at that time and the fuse was okay then.

I am hoping that the problem was limited to my headlight switch.  Two
of the plastic prongs that fit into the contacts were starting to
melt.  I am going to buy the headlight switch saver and thankfully I
can salvage my headlight switch.  Could the headlight switch have
caused enough resistance to melt the fuse inside the fusebox?

After replacing the fuse and installing a fuse extender, how should I
go about checking for shorting/grounding issues elsewhere? Would just
cleaning the contacts and checking the lights on the circuit for this
fuse be sufficient? Could the fact that my headlight switch was
slightly melted have caused the fuse to melt in the fuse box?
