cigarette lighter problem


Recommended Posts

I wanted to have a power outlet for my spot light and other things, so I put a cigarette lighter in my Trooper and it only took me a year or so to find the problem. It's one of those that hold the lighter in until it gets hot, then it releases. Trouble is, if you use some plug like that on the end of a spot light, it forces the prongs the hold the lighter out to where they contact the shell and blow the 30 amp fuse that supplies the engine, radiator fan and fuel pump. I blew two fuses to learn this.
