Default Hey guys, could use some help - this one is stumping me..

Was trying out a 12 volt swamp cooler on the way to a band gig, had it plugged in to my under-dash cigarette lighter. It ran for a few minutes then I heard a pop and it stopped working. (The lighter and the swamp cooler both). Now the sunroof and the rear hatch both will not open. The hatch will open if I use the key in it, but the little under-handle "bubble" switch for the rear hatch no longer works, and the sunroof is deader than a doornail. I checked every fuse with a continuity tester and they're all A-OK. What gives? Did I cook a relay maybe? Can't find a thing in the manual or online.. Thanks!

I was gonna say almost the same thing and ad that if you had the 01-05 PT, I could give you places to look. With the 06+ cruisers, your dealing with the CANBUS electrical system and everything changed.

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is trying unhooking the negative on the battery for a while. Push the brake pedal of couple times to rid any residual power. Hook the battery back up. This should allow the TIPM to reset. It's worth a try.

Will do Ray. Just replaced the battery (unrelated) the other day, but I didn't do the brake pedal thing, will try it. Thanks.
