Were are the fuses for ash tyay


Fuse #9 feeds the power outlet and fuse #18 feeds the lighter outlet. They are both located in the fuse box in the trunk, next to the battery. If you open the trunk and lift the floor up you'll see them hiding under there. The numbers should be called out on the cover for the fuse box.

Fuse 8 on 1990 allante is drawing down the battery. will completly drain battery in 2 days


Have you checked BCM input parameter BI61? That is the most common cause of the 2-3 day battery drain. Have you tried pulling fuse #8 under the ash tray for the CPS to see if that stops the drain? You can pull one of the plugs off the AC blower control module to isolate that. If you can not hear the blower motor running with the key off, that probably is not an issue.

2006 F150 The Power port on the dash does not work. Cannot seem to locate the fuse. Operators manual is not clear enough. I have located the fuse panel and checked all the fuses other than the relays


Ford calls them power points, if you are not talking about the one just above the ash tray ( that is the cigar lighter ).

Instrument panel power point ( to the right of the radio / HVAC center panel ) : Fuse # 39
Cigar lighter : Fuse # 41

There is also a power point in the rear of the SuperCrew & SuperCab cab configurations, and if installed, there can also be a power point in the overhead console ( think that is the rail system )

Cigarette lighter stopped working


I had the same problem on my '97. I ended up taking out the lighter when I was replacing the LCD on the radio, only to find that somehow it had become disconnected. Not sure how it happened but it might be worth checking out to see if it wiggled loose. To get to the lighter: 1) Prior up the cover by the shifter (the one that also goes back to the seat heater). It is connected with snaps so pry slowly. 2) Once the panel is removed you will see screws that are holding in the ash tray/cig lighter. Unscrew those and the whole lighter/ash tray can be pulled out. It is also held in by snaps on the top.
