Although any terminal can melt as a result of arcing, what puzzles me is how the negative connection to this switch can arc when the switch is not in use (i.e. no current path / open switch contact)?

Dave, I wonder if it is due to the lube Grease that they put in the switch that is causing the problem or do they not put any grease and there is copper dust from the contacts floating about inside the switch?
How does the switch come out of the door trim? I don't want to take a screw driver and start prying at it if it screws out? Once it is out I'm going to see which wire is the feed on put a fuse in, once I've found this out I'll put it on here so others can do the same.
