Here'* what I am seeing:

You had the old blower and a fused link in the car, then you replaced the blower motor and removed the fused link, but the wires are still getting hot and the fan is still cutting out?

Okay I put the fuse link in after it melted the plug.It wasstill getting hot, so I changed the motor,the link was getting hot then also,then I removed the link,then the wires were still getting hot.The reason I guess the fan was cutting out was because the plug was melted.It doesnt cut out now.

How clean is the splice you made. If your running from bigger wires, to smaller wires (for the fuse) nd then back to the regular wire, they can and will get warm.

Do you burn your fingers when you touch the wires with the fan on, or is it just warm?

First of all the fuse link isnt there anymore,I took it back out,and the fuse link had bigger wires than the factory wires are.After one minute the wires will get HOT to the touch so I am not running the fan because I dont want to melt my fan or the plug again,Thanks for responding again.

Is it getting hot just where you had the fuse, or the entire wire? Is it getting just as hot when it is on low speed?

What is the condition of the connector? As I remember jr's3800 had to get a new connector and wires leading to it. His melted. I'm thinking you are getting a poor connection and that may be causing a higher draw.
