What do I have to do to permanently fix the problem right? The red and green striped wires are almost already running out on top of the brake pedal. It sux cuz I don't know how I'm going to keep driving my mustang anymore once it does it again!
Just wondering if someone has replaced fuse F2.33 with something larger than a 15 amp fuse. That would explain why the wire gets hot and melts instead of the fuse blowing.
Do you want to fix this? Find where in the brake circuit there's a fault or short.
How about the brake light bulbs? Are any brighter than the rest? Start there.
Or disconnect all of the brake lights and test. Re-install one at a time until the CORRECT 15 amp fuse F2.33 blows.
