    Hot wires?

    What would cause this? One wire melted the solder in a connector and popped off. All the wires were hot. I wasn't even running the car for very long.

    I don't know. But it seemed wires were hotter than batteries.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I know the wire was stretched pretty tight where it came apart.
