reverse wire burning
got a big problem, that i need help on. when i start the car the reverse wire under the bonnet before the reverse switch (if u know what i mean) starts to burn and smell of burning plastic until the maxi fuse no 2. next to the battery fuses out, and the car turns off. the actual wire is disconnected so basically i dont have any reverse lights when im reversing, because this used to cause the fuse to blow and the car to shut down when it was connected.
but now even when the wire is disconnected the wire heats up and burns. this has just started and it has been a few months since i have disconnected the wire. only thing i have done lately is check all the bulbs at the rear.
thank you for any help.
