Default Fuse confusion......


The lighter outlet has no power coming to it (with the key on). The owners manual does not show which fuse is for the cig lighter. The power outlet near the radio is working as is the rear power outlet. Everything else seems to have power. Anybody know which fuse is for the lighter? [xx(]
I'm thinking it has an in-line fuse, maybe.

Thanks...

There's a fuse box under the hood. No.19 is labeled "Power Outlets", so you might want to look at that one. Disregard the pink ones, they are spare.

couldn't find what year you've got. In the 03 manual, Fuse # 20 in the power distribution Center (underhood) powers the cigar lighter and both of the outlets. The front is hot at all times, and the cigar and rear are switched by the ignition switch. The cigar lighter power is a Red wire from switch connector C1 terminal No. 3. I'd check the connector at the back of the lighter first.

It's an 01'. The "power distribution center" is under the hood.....would that be the black box behind the battery with the positive "jump" post on it. If so, I'll let the engine cool down a bit before opening it up. Thanks.

I've got an 01' also and the diagram above is from the 01' Owners Manual...and No.20 is another spare. No.19 is 20Amp Power Outlets. Yes, it's the black box with the positive "jump" post on one end.

The 01 SM says # 20 too, but can't argue with an owner. I would still check behind the lighter, since you said the others work and the fuse feeds 'em all.

Okay all the fuses are in working order. Hard to believe its the socket or the wiring to the socket, but I guess it's possible. Now I need to find a simple way to get to the rear of the socket. I hate to think I need to remove the monitor and it's bracket along with the console to get at it. I thought this would be an EZ fix. [xx(]

Damn, I wish I would have found a blown fuse! I'll wait for the weekend to pursue this any further....Thanks again guys!

Low and behold the outlet was working as it should today. The only thing I can think happened was that I did run the PT thru a No-Touch car wash yesterday morning. With rain the past couple of days, I ran the car thru very slow to drench the under-carriage. Maybe something got wet and didn't like it.[:I] After drying out over night all is well.

If I ever use the same wash again I will drive thru at a faster pace when it comes to the under-carriage wash. I truly love when problems take care of themselves! [8D]
