Cigarette lighter dead

Anyone know where the cigarette lighter fuse is on a 2000? It's not in the panel in front of the passenger seat in the fuse box's where the book says it is. Tried reseting the main power switch, still no luck. Any ideas?

Thanks Gator

The collar on the lighter socket may have worked loose so you may not be making a good ground. Did you use a test lamp and pin the contact in the socket? Remove and replace the fuse in its published location. You may have a contact issue in the fuse socket.

Hi Gator, On our 2004, in the battery compartment, there is a black box that's about 10" x 10" and 3" deep. The cig lighter fuse is in there. Cheers!

My unit is a 2003 Newmar Scottsdale. I found the fuse for mine up under the dash to the left of the fuse block. It was an in-line fuse. In fact I found several in-line fuses pushed up in there.

If you have a Vantrex system, reset it. There is no fuse.

The 2000 did not have the Vantrex system. I had a 1999 model and the fuses were behind the removable panel under the dash and infront of the passenger seat. This panel is held on with Velcro.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will check again behind the front panel where its suppose to be.
Its funny, I worked for Ford doing tune up and electrical professionally for 10 years and still
work on computers for IBM for 31 years and I can't find the fuse. Happy New Year all.

Gatorv,

It may be time to run a fused dedicated line to it.

Hello Gator:

When you remove the panel on the passenger side you will see three (3) back boxes that contain fuses. When you remove the covers you shoulds be able to find the burnt fuse and replace it. The boxes contain the small mini fuses.

I have checked every fuse in all 3 box's, They are all good.
I will check again, If no luck? I will run a new in-line fuse and be done with it.
Thanks for all the info.

Went back to coach today at lunch for one more try at that fuse.
Found it in 2 minutes. I expected it to be more than just a 10 amp fuse.
It was not labeled Cigar but AUX 2.
Thanks for all the help, Love this forum
