Default Wiring harness melted/burnt!?

So, I finally got a chance to look at the wiring harness that came with my engine. I'm REALLY concerned now. There's a small portion of the harness that is melted and burnt. It's around the interior fuse box(JDM so, RHD). Does this mean that my harness is probably fried?

I'll be furious if that is the case.

it probably means you'll need to do some re-wiring


I've melted my OE harness twice now (engine fires) and it's still going
after a little bit o' re-wiring....

As long as nothing like the wires have become useless or something along those lines, Ill be happy. I dont think I need that section of the harness, but I'm not 100% sure yet.

it prob. had a bad ground @one time or something and cause one of the little ground wires to draw to much and heat up and melt. Just splice in new wires and see what happens.
