      Charging at 14.2 to 14.5 volts. Charges fine.idles great.all safety switches operate fine.
      To poor for dealers. Have have bad experiences with them anyway.
      Called factory waiting for call back .RIGHT.

      did it physically melt it? If so I would also be checking the ground to the unit.

        Just a thought, are you 100% sure that it is the icu?
        Coils have been known to fail after they're warmed up.

          Have already replaced both coils. That was my first thought.
          Had 5 copies (10) total blown up copies of the wiring diagram printed up and taped together. Am currently tracing out wires 1 by 1.
          There was some one on r.star forum melted one replaced it but didnt say what caused it. Still lookin.
          Will keep up dating when possible.
          Do apprechiate all suggestions.
