Has anybody noticed their under hood fuse panel beginning to corrode?
My son got an 08 Silverado DMax in the shop today with electrical issues.

GM recognizes the problem and their solution is a rubber flap on the rad support behind the grill to block any road mess from entering the engine compartment

Interesting topic.

I'v seen them replaced because of that. Corrosion form the elements along with electricity creates a chemical reaction. Somebody in the aftermarket should get creative and design a more sealed fuse box for these truck. Mine get dusty but not corroded. If you ever get a chance, could you follow the fuse box to the batteries? Just a wild guess, I wonder if the chemicals in the batteries are leaching to the fuse box through the wires? Hmm..:str:

I'm thinking maybe the Chinese fuses that they are using must me made of soy products?:thk:
