Killed ciggie lighter socket
Got a Fairmont EFII 96 whose climate control system reports an E2 error, baffle door not moving, thus not hot air from the heater.
As it's going to cost quite a bit to fix, I figured I'd pick up a little 12 volt heater for in car use in the mean time.
Headed down to Jaycar and picked up the 12V CERAMIC HEATER complete with lighter socket connection.
Stated up the car, plugged it in, and it worked fine. Blowing hot air. I gave the car a quick rev, and the heater stopped working. Thinking it was a dodgey unit, I unplugged it, plugged in the lighter, and now that's not working. Neither is the phone charger.
So I figured it would be the fuse. Turned on the radio, and was surprised to see it worked, as the manual indicates the radio and the ciggie lighter socket both use the same 30 amp fuse. Pulled out the fuse and it's still intact.
Any ideas on any places or points I can check where the circuit may have failed?
Thanks everyone :)
