Wire melting?

Asked by Oct 24, 2015 at 08:51 AM about the 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2.8l v6 fiero has a wire that melts through
whenever I crank the car, it creates a
parasitic draw from the battery and makes it
difficult for the car to crank. According to the
manual, it is labelled as "Backup lamps
control feed from the trans". I believe this
wire is also associated with my fuel line
getting red hot, which can and will cause
fires. Any tips can help.
