More than likely your looking at the towing package for wiring a hitch to your vehicle for towing a trailer. Probably can use some of that, but I'm sure if you stopped in at a GM dealer and explained what your trying to do, they'd have someone look & confirm for you that it's o.k. or not to use that harness, without a big service charge.

SOURCE: 97 Lumina. No 12V at the AC compressor clutch.

Try checking the low pressure and high pressure switches. If one of these are faulty it can keep compressor from working. Take a paper clip and jump the ports on the plug in for the switches and see if the compressor comes on if it does then that switch is bad.

Testimonial: "Makes very good sense. Logically you don't want the comressor to run with no refregirant in the system. I did not know about this fail safe mode. "

SOURCE: The accessories 12 V plug

I don't have a solution for this problem(yet) but have the exact same issue with a 2005 Silverado. All fuses are good and the cigarette lighter outlet works fine. I am looking to get my hands on a copy of the wiring diagram for this truck. I suspect that there is an inline fuse somewhere in the system that has blown but haven't been able to locate. If anyone has a copy of the service(or Haynes) manual for this truck, I would appreciate a copy of the wiring diagram that shows the accessory outlet.

Where can I find the fuse for a cigarette lighter on the Toyota corolla 2005


This one's the fusebox in the interior of the car; usually below the steering wheel in a panel with a thumbscrew that you just give a quarter-turn, then catch it as it opens; inside are some fuses, which tend to be obvious when they are blown. There's a little legend that tends to be well-lit too, indicating which fuses were for the ligher/'auxillary 12v power' socket. Don't let a failed lighter bust on you; a flaming car is much more expensive than tossing/replacing the bad part or plugging something else in.

How to replace the fuse for 12v outlet and Cig outlet in a 2006 ford taurus


I was searching for this fuse. All the above fuses mentioned were not popped on my vehicle and the 12v power was the only thing not working. Look under the hood by the latch. There is another fuse box by the hood latch. Open that and it will be #16 & #18 one is your 12v power, the other is cig lighter. Both of mine were popped. Replaced those and my problem was fixed.

I have a 2007 Chevy Suburban. My remote door locks only work briefly when I exit my car. If I return to open the door locks shortly there after, they will not unlock the doors!! I changed the battery...


Do you have a phone charger plugged into the power socket? New cell phone? Laptop in the vehicle or any new camera, radar detector? Anything electronic can interfere with remote entry system

12v power port (not cigarette lighter) with radar detector connected killing battery without car running


it sucks power through anything it's plugged into, like a power outlet on a wall, even something turned off takes a tiny amount from it. you have to unplug it every time you cut the car off. or did you want someone to tell you a way to rig it! that's why you have a freaking radar detector, you're a speeder, you should just get rid of the damn thing honestly, they can ticket a parked car with one of those.

I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2001. the driver


Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Cig lighter works 4 cigs but wont charge satnav however much i twiddle about with it, help!!


Try checking the fuse inside the charger. Ths may be blown. Have you tried another charger in its place ex. cell phone or radar detector? If works for the cig lighter should charge.

Cigarette lighter came off


Test to see if you are getting +12V at the center contact and connect meter to an alternate ground point....perhaps the ground wire fell off?? Otherwise I would see if power lead slipped off rear of lighter connector.
