I removed the top to the main fuse holder in the engine compartment {not the one on the cowl} and found that the paper diagram on the inside of the lid was burned. The plastics wasn't melted but the diagram had a big burn spot. Anybody have this happen?
Thanks

Have you looked where the burn spot is and what is directly below it? Is the burn in the area above the B positive cable that comes from the battery?

I remembered to check the plastic fuse holder top today and the burn spot is above were the power cable attaches to a stud. It makes me wonder if the car was jumped or charged with a high power battery charger and the connection got so hot that it burned the paper diagram on the inside of the fuse top?

These B cables fail. If yours is still OE I'd replace it

There you go. You should change the B+ cable like mune327 said. These tend to corrode at the fuse/relay box and is the most likely cause of the burn spot.

Look at the cable where it is bolted, is it burned or corroded? If not, it may have been replaced already and the burn was from a previous cable. If it's original, then replace it.

I looked at the cable and it looked good and their was no corrosion. I am going to disconnect the cable tomorrow and check it better and put some dielectric grease on it.
