Re: [DML] Mysterious Fuse



That is a fuse holder for the brakelights that is used on many of the  
early cars.  Mine actually melted on me and smoked, so I spliced in a  
blade fuse holder with a 10 amp fuse and haven't had any problems since.

My guess is since you have working brakelights and that fuse holder  
is just dangling, it must have been bypassed somewhere else.
