Body Damage is Cool

I think the reason it fried was because I left the headlights on until the battery drained dead.


That would not have caused the connector to melt. Leaving the headlights on just creates a normal current draw which will eventually drain the battery if the engine isn't running to charge the battery. Something abnormal caused that damage, and it would be a good idea to diagnose what caused it before reconnecting it.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
My solution:

Fuse Box on Amazon

Mounted near the battery and fed with a 8awg wire. Makes it handy to add a couple extra things too.

Thanks RX, I think what caused the high current flow was that the terminal was corroded and it might of happened a long time ago since I never saw that of the link.

I used this one Amazon ATC Fuse Panel. Instead of fusses I headed to Napa and bought bulk fusible link (3 different gauges), cut to similar length as old part, then crimped on blade ends. Has worked fine for 5 years. You can google the Mitsubishi fuss link wire color to cross reference it to the correct diameter. Napa colors don't match - but gauge (Mits calls it mm2) is what is important.

Mits Color and Fuze Link Wire Size
Brown 0.3
Green 0.5
Red 0.85
*Black 1.00 (diesel glow plug circuit)
Black 1.25
