Welcome to the forums.

It's hard for us to guess which wire is getting hot. A color and approximate gauge may help. My guess is that wire may be for the blower motor. Many cars switch the blower power thru the ignition key. This large load being switched thru the ignition switch is one of the biggest reason the switches melt.

I would doubt that wire has anything to do with the vehicle not starting. It sounds like you may have a starter that is going bad from the heat.
