I recently installed a rs into a friends 02 Sunfire. Upon removing the drivers kick panel, I noticed a green plug which had been very hot at one time. One of the five wires in the plug melted through the plastic.I tested each wire, two of them show +12v with key on. The wire that did the damage is 12 guage and had no power when I tested. The rest of the wires are 14 guage. Anybody recognize it ?burnt plug -- posted image.

That is your defrost wire very common for that to happen.

Butt connect the two wires and call it a day

My 06 gmc sierra had a similar problem, burnt out the wire harness going to the blower motor relay, maybe its a gm thing.
