Q: Fuse box wires burned

asked by on

The wires connected to the fuse box burned and now the car won't start.

Hi. The issue you have experienced demands a mechanic’s attention. The fuse box is the power unit to most of your main power sources in your vehicle. The burned wires are caused by overheating to a point where the wires are no longer conductive. YourMechanic can send a certified mechanic to diagnose your electrical system and replace any fuses as necessary.
