Re: [DML] Fan Fail melting

This is an interesting post.  A couple of years ago I had a Fan Fail 
2x2 installed.  It also melted one fuse completely and melted some of 
the surrounding wire on the Fan Fail 2x2.  This may not be a Fan Fail 
problem as much as a problem with the high current, and the closed 
area.  I suppose however that stouter wires might resolve some of the 
heat issue, and the Fan Fail should be designed to handle this.  One 
might consider providing some ventilation in the fuse area.  The 
other good advice is to put some new lower current fans.  I did this 
for one of my Deloreans, and I must say they are very quiet, and draw 
much less current.
