Default Re: Wiring issue fuse box 2002

Yes that giant plug with a handle is the normal through-the-firewall wiring harness.

That circuit only has interior components. The RCM, GEM, and instrument cluster are all inside the cab. So you shouldn't find any problem outside. Only the wire(s) that are melted need to be replaced. You can cut the melted section out and splice in a new piece of wire.

Now, with that said, we still don't know WHY this happened in the first place. The only logical assumption I can make is the previous owner did something that shored that circuit out, and had the fuse bypassed. So, we can only hope it doesn't happen again once you repair everything.

It's a crap shoot.
