Hey guys, it's me again.
I have an '85 IROC-Z. My problem began when my battery kept dying on me. I thought that it might be the alternator or maybe the battery was finally giving up on me. It was 4 years old. I replace it with an extra battery that is practically brand new. It came out of an '87 IROC,that I am tearing down for the motor and tranny. I put the new battery in and it has been running fine every since. Soon after that I started losing fuses in my radio hotwire under the hood, which is connected to positive battery terminal. Could this be a result of the battery have power surges, the alternator going bad, or just a plain old fashioned short?
