Problem Solved!!!

The switch had shorted out causing an overload on the wiring. The Brake Switch had a 30 amp fuse in it and that is why it didn't blow the fuse.

I replaced the 30 amp with a 20 amp as Painless Wiring suggested. All is well.......no more heat/smoke and the new switch works perfectly.

I already had a disconnect for the battery installed but was working on the car (start/run) when this happened.

From now on......I'll never park any of my cars for any period of time without diconncecting the batteries. Could of burned my house down if it would have happened in the middle of the night.

I would suggest to everyone to install a quick battery disconnect. You just never know!!!


Thanks to everyone for your help!!!!!!!
