Get an inline fuse holder and run it under the dash and out a grommet on the firewall. connect it to the positive (red) connector on the batter. than with the ground (black) connect that to a screw that goes in the body somewhere. use a 14 gauge ring terminal connector on both ground and positive wire. use 15amp fuse in in line. cylindrical, atc, or mini atc will do. since it is not hooked up to an ignition source it will work when the car is off. it will only have power when engaged. don't worry about power drain.

Where is cig lighter fuse in a kenworth k108


Most 12 volt outlets/plugs like one would plug a GPS into or a cigarette lighter, are 'hot' all the time. This means that they are hooked direct to positive side of the electrical system. If your cigarette lighter is not working check the wire from it to the hot side of the fuse block.

Cigarette lighters not working


Check for power at fuse. If power is there a break in the wire going to cig lighter is broken. If no power than there is a blown fusible link by battery. Check fuses under hood also

My son's 1997 Honda Accord has an aftermarket stereo that works but his cigarette lighter doesn't. Could it be a fuse?


The thing is, whoever hooked up the stereo would know for sure where the connected into in order to get power to the stereo. If they went off somewhere ealse other than what the factory made to be the power for the stereo it would make sense. In the accord for your year the power to the stereo and the cigarette lighter is the same fuse if it was hooked to the same wiring that came with the vehicle. They may have by accident disconnected the lighter and it's just not hooked up at all. You can check the fuse for the cigarette lighter if you would like. that fuse is in the fuse panel located in the engine compartment and will be in the number 18 position and sould be a 15 amp fuse ( see diagram of the layout of fuses below). If that fuse is bad and corrects the problem then they hooked up to another power source when they hooked up the stereo. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Is their anyway to get the power socket, cigarette lighter kind, to turn off when i turn off the car?


There are two ways of going about it. The best way to do it would be to use a relay. Cut the 12v+ wire going to the cigarette lighter, hook one side up to terminal 87 and the other side to 30 of the relay. Ground pin 85 and hook up pin 86 to a switched ignition wire. Doesn't matter too much which ignition switched wire you use. The radio is near by and has a switched ignition wire you can tap off of. The relay draws very little current so it won't affect the other circuit. Doing it this way keeps the power to the cigarette lighter on the original circuit, but switches it on when the ignition is on. You can purchase an automotive relay like the one pictured at radio shack or any auto supply store for a few bucks.

I had advance auto hook up scanner and they said there scanner would not power up.What could be the problem


does your cigarette lighter work? the scanner hook up and the lighter socket are on the same fuse. if neither work, probably a blown fuse.

I have a 2005 scion xa and the cigarette lighter has never worked


The fuse box cover should tell you which fuse controls the lighter. Also, I've seen it where the people forget to hook the harness up to connect the lighter unit
