Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
It started when I plugged in a faulty 180 w inverter which blew the fuse on the cig lighter/radio/clock circuit. I replaced the fuse, but now whenever I plug something in (ie the GPS) the circuit goes off, then slowly comes back on after I've removed the gadget. Also the back cig lighter socket doesn't seem to work either.

The heavy duty or 'circuit breakers' should be in the engine compartment, perhaps in front of the air breather.There are one or may be 2 inside behind the front side kick panels driver and passenger side, or under the steering wheel.

hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out. No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again. worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.

You may have a short in the dash, i would have it checked by a mechanic, if it is a short it could cause a fire, so you should have it checked ASAP........

It's under and behind the glovebox.
The black panel has clips like on a gameboy battery compartment, with that removed, you still won't see fuses. There's two skrews near the hinge (on the outside of the glovebox), turn these counterclockwise with your hands. The fusebox will swing down.
The cigar lighter is a blue 15A fuse on the left side closest to the driver's seat.
