Re: [DML] melted fuse/fusebox



Like Dale said, the melting is due to oxidation of the aluminum fuse 
blades.  Resistance increases, therefore heat increases, eventually 
melting the positions with the highest draw and most corrosion.  If one 
of the endangered positions is #1 or #7, you'll want to move quickly to 
replace it.  Those fuse the coil [#1] and the armature [#7] of the RPM 
relay.  #7 is the fuel pump fuse.

A semi-permanent fix is to replace the affected positions with a fused 
link: a fuse holder for the bladed fuses that the D uses.  Just clip the 
wires from the back of the fuse box on the position you're replacing and 
crimp or solder in the fuse holder.

The permanent fix is a new fuse box.  We have had them made up and offer 
the with or without the top.  Complete with connectors, fuses and 
instructions. $89.95 w/cover, $79.95 without.
