cigarette lighter

Post by josua60 » Wed Jul 14, 2010 9:09 am

I have put a cig lighter on my 1500. Direct connection to the battery through a 30 amp fuse. The lighter will work one time, then blow the fuse. What's going on here. My car has a 20 amp fuse and everything works fine. The only thing it will be used for is the lighter. Is there a special fuse for this? Driving me crazy.

With everything being made in China, it's not impossible to get a "new" lighter that is defective. Could be either the element or the housing. Try with another lighter element.
