Power Accessory jack used to have power even with ignition off. Inside cabin Under hood main ignition fuse is good. Are there any fusible links in this circuit ??


main ignition fuse is only for just that...

if you checked that the circuit to that power outlet is OK, including the wiring, maybe the jack itself is bad

disconnect it, then use jumper wires to the battery to see if it powers on

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter on a 1964 ford fairlane?


There's only one fuse block on the old cars, in the instrument panel on the driver's side. If the fuses are not labeled, use a test light to check every fuse. Only takes 5 minutes.
These are the old style fuses, with a round cylindrical clear glass in the middle? They push into metal clips on each end of the fuse?

Then ground a test light to a good ground under the dash- a bolt, screw, or metal. Now turn the key to ON. Every fuse should now be powered. Touch one end of the fuse or the metal clips with the test light-it should light up. If it doesn't, recheck the ground clip of tester-have to have a good ground. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse. A bad or blown fuse will only light the tester on one end of the fuse. Power comes in on one side of the fuse terminal, and if the fuse is good, power will also be on both ends or terminals of the fuse.
A few fuses are hot at all times- the horn, tail lights, and brake lights for example. With key on, all fuses are hot-should have power on them. Modern fuses can be tested this way as well-all modern fuses have a test port on each end of the top of the fuse-this port is open to the metal strip inside the fuse. If power is on both ends of the fuse at the test ports, that fuse is good-you don't have to take it out to inspect-use a test light and check for blown fuses this way.

To test a cig. lighter: Ground the test light lead. Pull out the lighter. Use the needle probe of tester and carefully touch the center element inside the lighter base-the heating element-don't let the probe touch the sides of the case when touching the heating element-you may blow the fuse. If the lighter is good, with key on, the element should have power-will light up the tester. If the base part is good, has power, then maybe the pull out piece that lights cigarettes is bad. Or the lighter case is not grounded good. Some are case grounded to the metal dash, but some may have a ground wire on the back side of the base, behind the dash-check for that. The power wire to the lighter attaches at the center of the lighter base. If there is a ground wire, it will be attached on the side of the base, again this is behind the dash.

My car is a 2006 honda accord. a friend somehow mixed the terminals up and the radio went dead when we finally got it right. it hasnt come on sinse then


Terminals for what, the battery? Anyway, you likely blew a fuse-check the fuse panel under the dash-should be a radio fuse. Radios often have two power sources, both would be fused, sometimes a power wire has an inline fuse.
If you find the radio fuse and it is good, better use a test light and check that your fuse panel is getting power to it. The radio fuse would have power to it with the key in ON. In fact, with key on, every fuse in the fuse panels would show power on a test light. The little slots at the top ends of every fuse are open to the metal strip inside the fuse. Ground the test light lead to a metal bracket or screw, and touch the test light probe into the slot. With key on, every good fuse will light the test light on both ends of the fuse-fuse is good and has not blown-a bad fuse will only light up the test light on one end of the fuse-the metal strip inside has blown apart.
You can check all your fuses this way-don't have to pull them out to inspect. But also most important for you to know is, does your fuse panel have power being fed to it. If those terminals were battery terminals, you may have blown a bigger fuse that feeds the fuse panel, one of your maxi fuses under the hood in the Power Distribution Box.
Good luck. Post back with what you find.

Auxiliary power point does not work check all fuses all good


Did you check both sides of the fuse installed with a meter to a known good ground ? There are 2 or 3 power point fuses ( depending on the cab configuration ).



Engine compartment Fuse # 22 is the cigar lighter
Engine compartment Fuse # 65 is the dash power point
Engine compartment Fuse # 66 is the inside the console power point
Engine compartment Fuse # 72 is the rear power point

Cig Lighter does not work: Fuse good (power to fuse good) No power to the back of the cig lighter plug can you help?


Is the power going through the fuse?
I have seen fuses that looked ok, but were broken inside.
If power is getting through the fuse, then the power wire must be broken or cut somewhere.
You will have to trace it back to the fuse box, checking along the way with a 12 volt DC testing probe.
