What type of terminal is on the amp. screw or slip on type?

The plastic does not carry any type of ground. If your ground wire was melted, that means you have a 'hot' wire shorting across the ground somehow causing a short. This causes excessive heat like an 'arc' welder.

You might want to check your power wire to make sure its not making any contact to ground. Make sure any foreign debris is not causing a 'bridge' between the 2 posts.

If your terminals (or place where you hook up power and ground wires) are in good shape, re-wire and turn on the unit.

Batterys corroded clean up contacts now unit does not power up

Jenko, How bad was the clean up of the battery contacts, lot of corrosion? Now it possible to have broken wire to the battery compartment.

If you are mechanical inclined and have some experience with electronic. Here what you do. Remove the front lens. There will be four screws on a concentric ring. Remove the screw and the ring. This unit comes apart in the approx middle. Also, from the front end look for a white Teflon ring with one screw it goes around the image intensifier tube. Remove the screw this will allow the image tube to ability it to move back along with the rest of back frame Be careful here all the wire are white Teflon coated ,all the same color. These wires are HV, and are rated at 2KV with small current. There's a battery tube on the upper right of the back housing. Lots of wire that go to the two switches. Take a pick and gently remove some of the rubber trim cement that was used. The only wire to be concerned about is the ground wire. The positive wire you can see from the back of the back frame housing. There is a aluminum ring that is threaded for the battery cap. Now there is slot cut into the battery tub just under the aluminum threaded ring, you can see the wire. This is the positive wire.

If you don't have the room, remove the plastic cover over the on/off and IR witch cover. There will be six little screws under the plastic cover, remove the screw and the back plastic switching component can be remove the from inside. Make sure all the cement has bee remove.

It is really critical here. take some wire indicators tags. make a picture of the printed circuit board and every where a wire is attached put a tag on the wire and mark the location on the your diagram where that one with its tag is locked. Your are going to find that there are many ground wires to different shielding plates. I can't says it enough, mark those wire and its location on the printed circuit boards

If you need to remove the green image intensifier tube. There a wire teflon cap and cover that goes the voltage multiplier around the image tube. Just gently pull down the white cap, and turn it inside out. Take small pick and remove dielectric jell from inside the cathode. One the jell is removed, then gently pull on the white wire and it will pull out about 3/8 of inch. The voltage multi-
plier ignitor wire is solder to the cathode wire, desolder it. All components then can be laid out.

Check for broken wires. send me another message and I will tell you components to check and how to fire the cathode ignitor. stewbison.

Brake light goes out and seems contacts from it being plastic is the problem. Bulb is good could it being contact overheating?

if u unplugged it from the rear light you should see terminal 1 (brown wire) being chaffed and loose. this is the ground wire. make a a new terminal and ground it to the rear light itself, u should see a male pin coming out of the aluminum chassis (fix it there). This should solve your issue.

Electrical problem with the dash.

This wiring problem can be much more costly, and time consuming, than you want to take on.
Professional mechanics cringe, when a wiring problem of this magnitude comes their way!

It's probably a bad ground for the instrument cluster.
The instrument cluster housing is plastic. There is a flat, thin, 2 to 3 inch wide, piece of plastic that is the wiring harness for this instrument cluster.
In this flat piece of plastic, are thin flat copper strips. These are like wires, to conduct the electricity to the gauges, lights, and the rest of the instrumentation.

Since the plastic instrument cluster is not metal, and therefore it can't be used as a Ground source, the flat piece of plastic I mentioned above, has a Ground wire to it. May be more than one.

This ground wire/s could have corrosion on the terminal end, where it attaches to the truck body.
Bad ground, everything goes haywire. The ground wires, might loose on the terminals used for the flat piece of plastic.

Another source of a bad ground problem overlooked, is that the cab of a truck receives it's,
Main ground from the engine.

There should be Two ground straps, coming from the firewall over to the engine. Sometimes, when the upper part of an engine, or the engine is replaced, the mechanic neglects to reinstall these ground straps.

Sometimes just one ground strap is reinstalled, and this is No good!
Also both terminal ends of these ground straps are a good source for corrosion to develop.
Corrosion makes a bad contact.

I myself would take the truck back.
