Fusible link melts fuses

Does anyone have experience or know why a fusible link would melt a fuse? [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

I run an inline 30 amp fuse as my main fuse and now all of a sudden it is hot to the touch after the vehicle is turned on and it has melted two fuses??? Any ideas??

TIA

Re: Fusible link melts fuses

I would start by having the battery tested. It could be going south, drawing too much charge current and heating the fuse. After that, I'd check all of the ground wires to the firewall and engine block. They develop high resistance and cause problems. Then I'd have the alternator tested. HTH

There must be a short somewhere. Have you altered the wiring lately?

Re: Fusible link melts fuses

I Burned (Melted ) my fusebal link wire from the battery that all aug. juice runs through while doing some wiring. I fixed the problem and installed a fusable link with a 30 amp fuse in it's place and haven't had any problems, I'd say you still have a short or some problem some where. What caused you to install the fusable link in the first place? maby you should start there!!
