Hi I have encountered a problem with my fuse box terminal. It gets so hot that it melted the plastic covering. Also my battery gauge is very low and sometimes goes so low my gauges and lights cut off when idling. My abs light is always on (abs fuse is in that fuse box.) I took it to a shop and they checked the alternator and battery and said they were fine but said my fuse box was melting down and they tightened the bolt and the ABS light went off and my battery gauge was fine. My problems started to reoccur recently and the bolt is as tight as it can get and I checked the fuse box and there is absolutely nothing melted and all seems fine with it. Could it be a shorted wire or something else? Thanks again.
