I recently purchased my 2002 Ford Explorer Limited and my left high beam will not turn on. So I purchased new bulbs and the left high beam still will not turn on. Then I checked the blue 20amp Bussman female maxi fuse at F1 19 via the see thru plastic cap and the fuse is fine. So I pulled the fuse, checked the 2 flat contact points in the fuse box with my circuit tester with the engine on and grounded to my battery. Only one contact point made my tester light up. How do I fix this problem and did I test it correctly

Was taking the air intake off and realized 2 bolts were stripped. I'm having trouble getting to them so it seems like it's impossible to work on and getting them out. What's the best solution for this. Desperately needing help.
Wire looked to be attached to the engine block. Located under air intake and beside the fuel injection. Trying to identify this wire. It was burned to a crisp and 02 explorer will not crank but lights and dashboard lights work when I turn the key on.
Was driving when I gave it gas it would make a low clicking like noise then it shut off and wouldn't crank. Smoke was coming from the wire under fuel injection. Any idea what the wire is and how to replace it. Please help!
