melting wires=short 9/10 times... You can try to diagnose the problem with a multi-meter. Check current while ignition is off to see what circuit is drawing an abnormal amount of charge. If nothing is drawing charge, I'd have the battery checked, and be worried about what is causing those wires to melt. If you have no experience with electrical, take it somewhere... I wish I could be more helpful but electrical is my personal weakness. Sorry to be such little help

You have a short you should bring to shop battery will explode Be careful do not turn on car let some one who know Disconnect battery.safley. Then I'll tell you how to ck each cur rut one by one until we find the problem get a wire diagrame of car so we can follow the current after we find it.
