Yes, cable ends. I ended up ordering 5/16 lugs, figure I can just grind down the end that connects to the fuse panel. Pics tomorrow when the cable arrives.

Fixed the dreaded fuse block meltdown. Ordered a cable off of a marine site, added a cable end from Lowes and Voila - no longer gets hot! Its now been 6 months without a warning light and the fuse block hasn't melted.:):):):):):)

What size cable did you use for the alt wire? And what site did you buy it from?
What size cable ends?

I need to do this also.
Thx
