Hola everybody. Got a small problem, my cold cathode box thingy melted. OK so i have 2 ccfl's 1 ac cold cathode and 1 S7 gauges. The 2 ccfl's are hooked right ot cig lighter with switch. The S7's and AC cathode are in the same fuse splitter. Its the black kind with the 2 fuse spots on it so everything is protected. Well last night my AC cathode went out, then i smelled burning plastic. So I turned off the lights and looked where the fuse was to check that. That was ok, so then i checked the wiring to the cold cathode.. it was ok. then i looked at the little blue transformer (orwhatever it it) box that the cold cathodes plug into. Well becasue the box hodl 2 cathodes, 1 spot was open, and that spot had melted down. So now i put in a new blue box, and hooked up the cold cahtode to the cig lighter as well ( unfortunatly now it is always on) Any ideas why this woudl have happened? do you think it will happen again with new hookup? On a sidenote, i have all of the black wires from the 3 different thigns gounded to the same spot, would that matter? Thanks al for your help and sorry for the very long post.
PS, please ignore all the bad typing, i am in a hurry
