We have just bought a 92 dodge 3500 van,318 auto from a local church for a hauler.The fuse block has been hot and the heater motor wired around it. I have been told that this is common. What other vechiles would have this? Pickup? What is the fix for this? I know it is a dodge but it was cheap. BIGG C

I'd say it would be fine so long as there is an in-line fuse in there somewhere, especially where there is a blower motor on the other end. If ya pull the motor it should have an amp rating at start and running load, just go to the fuse above that and its all good.

What I am looking for is what other vehicles does the same fuse block come in. Many more trucks than vans. The fuse block has been hot and started to melt. I want to replace it. Does anyone know of any websites for dodges? BIGG C

This is a common problem on Dodges,we've got a Dodge 1ton and it had the same problem.It is usually caused by poor grounds somewhere in the system.I don't believe that the fuse block is available from Dodge any more.It is van only,but there is several yrs.that will work.I've replaced several of them.you'll just have to scour the salvage yards or maybe some one on here knows of one.Good luck
