    sounds to me like you burned up something in the bcm

    "cheap" wires are not what causes melting.. too small gauge of a wire for the current draw does. and if a remote wire (12v low amp ref) was melting a wire.. something was way wrong

    all controled by the bcm

    i strongly believe you have damaged a part of the circuit board.

    I agree start with the easy stuff check for blown fuses that may be associated with these circuits u can find these fuse locations in your owner manual , although some of these fuses will have power only when the key is in the ON postion and some will always have power at all time check with the Key in the ON position with your test light

    Never hook anything secondary to a fuse like power steering or ABS or anything like that. Use the fuse for you interior lights or the radio. I have my grill lights hooked to my headlight fuse. Last thing you want is to overload a power steering fuse and blow it while you're driving around.
