Re: Melted Fuse Holder?
Not much I can add to kha's post, except that it could be a fuse problem as well. It's very unlikely but fuses can become burnt but not opened and that can cause a point of resistance, so if your connections were tight at the fuse holder and the crimp/solder connection was clean, I would change the fuse or, at least, check it with a multimeter.
Also, if you crimped the lugs with a percussion style crimper, pliers or if they're the set screw style, there's a good chance that they're corroded inside even though they may look fine.
