I check the fuses, but they weren't blown

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
I would suspect that you have caused melting at one of the electrical system connection points or melting where the battery cable connects to the fuse panel.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

I don't see any sign of melting anywhere when I trace the cables to the fuse box. how can I rate you when this does nothing to help me

Hello Maul,

My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to see if I can help you. Do you still need help with this problem? If so do you have a volt meter? And can you provide the last seven digits of the VIN number?
