Question about 1985 Chevrolet Chevy
I HAVE TWO BATTERIES AND TWO ALTERNATORS ON THE TRUCK ALONG WITH A PLOW PACKAGE. THE PROBLEM IS THE LIGHT FUSE GETS SO HOT THAT IT BLOWS AND MELTS. ALSO,THE SECOND BATTERY LIGHT INSIDE THE TRUCK STAYS ON. I'LL CHANGE THE LIGHT FUSE AND THE LIGHTS WORKS A FEW MINUTES THEN BLOWS. COULD THE SECOND ALTERNATOR BE WIRED WRONG. WHAT CAN POSSIBLY CAUSE A FUSE TO GET THAT HOT. ITS EVEN STARTING TO MELT OTHER FUSES INCLUDING THE FUSE BOX. PLEASE HELP ME, WINTER IS HERE.
The reason the fuse blows/melts is because there is excessive draw. The other alternator could be wired wrong. Check to make sure the wires are correct gauge.
