What is the wire coming off the break lever?
I kept blowing fuses on the relay, the wire off the lever started to melt and smoke, after that is was burnt it broke away from the white connector?
Please help.....

It's a brake light switch. Pull the lever and the brakes come on. I have one for sale if you need one.

The wire could have been rubbing on the frame somewhere. Or the switch is bad and had a high resistance. This would cause a short and blow the fuse. Before the fuse blew, the wire heated up enough to melt. The fuse should have blown before that happened though. I would search the wires and make sure there is not a rub somewhere.

Ok.
thank you.
I really appreciate it.
it did blow but I jumped it.
I was stuck in the middle of the woods. Lol
I would run for a min or two then blow and I ran outta fuses.

First, replace the fuse with a circuit breaker. It'll be cheaper instead of changing fuses while trouble shooting. Then trace the wires looking for bare or melted wires shorting to the frame.
