Is this the dash light fuse? You sound like you have been doing some checking around. Here's what I'm trying to find out. There's a green wire that comes from the head light switch. It comes from the dimmer rheostat on the switch (the coil thing) and goes down to the dash lamp fuse. The other side of the dash lamp fuse is the gray wire that goes to the dash lamps. Trying to see if there is something wrong with the green or gray wires. First thing is I would do is pull the dash lamp fuse and see what happens.
OK, you sure the harness was not getting hot before you pulled the dash fuse? It doesn’t make sense that it wasn’t. Can you tell which wire is getting warm. The green wire? Don’t do anything or let it run too long so that wires burn. If it is the green wire, pull the connector off the head light switch. Disconnect the battery first. If it is the green wire, then reconnect the battery and see if the green wire is still getting warm.

Not sure where I can point you to this morning. Nothing should be getting warm under there. Not the headlight switch or any of the wires. I can’t see where the problem is because it’s too far away for me to look. If you tell me what color the wire is that is getting warm maybe I can make some suggestions. I also need to know about where the wire the warm spot is.
