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.

you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

Cigarette lighter plug still does not work after changing fuse.


Possibly the wire has come loose. This happens a lot with lighters! Try putting your finger in ( it won't hurt you, and you won't get electrocuted ), and turning the insides in a clock-wise direction . You will feel the whole lighter tighten up. If this doesn't help, turn it in an anti-clockwise direction. This will take the socket out of the car. Check that the two wires on the back of the lighter are firmly connected. Then put the lighter back in, and hopefully it's OK.

Cigarett lighter power


The power wire for your socket is connected to the ignition switch. For the socket to operate without the key, the power wire must be relocated to a direct power source or directly to the battery. You can locate a "hot" source by using a 12Volt tester on the terminals of the fuse box. Just touch the tester to the terminals until one lights up without the key on. That terminal is "hot" and will allow your socket to have power at anytime. You should use a power source with a fuse for safety. You can hook directly to the battery but you should add a fuse inline to be safe.

Powering a car amplifier


Bad idea. The wiring leading up to your cigarette lighter is usually a cheap 16 gauge wire. The amplifier will not be able to draw enough amperage through that power source. You could however, use the positive on your cigarette lighter as your remote for the amp. This would be helpful if your cigarette lighter turns off and on with the car.

Tottom direct power supply


No, it will fry the unit!!!

You need the cigarette lighter adapter to bring the voltage down to 5V. More than 5V will fry the One.
