cigarette lighter
#1
Hey y'all, I was wondering if anyone knew where the cigarette lighter fuse and the horn fuse were located. It appears someone jacked my repair manual......

Oh, its a 71 coupe.

When addressing fuse related issues always physically test the fuse or if its old just replace it anyways. Even if the element appears intact, the solder joint can (and often does) fail within the end cap.

Hey y'all, just got under the dash, the fuses there are labeled different than the ones in the picture, and all of them test good...... any other possible locations for this fuse?

Check with a voltmeter to see if you have voltage at the wire, maybe the ground wire to the lighter is bad

I have had problems on two occasions with lighting circuits that did not work but the fuses tested good. In both instances the clips that hold the fuse were slightly corroded. I cleaned the clips and it solved the problem.
