Make sure all the connections are clean and tight. If they are loose and/or dirty heat will build from resistance.

Had a similar problem, on the suggestion of these experienced folks, replaced the old wires, with good heavy gauge batt. connect wiring, problem gone. Old wires are corroded inside more likely than not, and need to go.
