I'm sure you checked the fuses like ten times already. So its prolly the relay.

What the relay does is act like a automatic switch. When your key is not in it turns itself off. As soon as you put the key in and turn the jeep on it opens the circuit so let's power go to the cig lighter. So if you've got the jeep on and no power going to the lighter while all the fuses are good then its the relay.

I'm not sure where the relay for the cig lighter is ill take a look in the book

I did press hard enough to get through to the wire. And I actually just went and checked the fuses again, for the 11th time. Deffinately the relay. Thank you for doing this for me.

I got the haynes book.


Erin it shows in the book the fuse for cigarette lighter as number 19 . Mine says 18 on my jeep. Before you mess with / replace the relay check the fuse in the glovebox labeled 19 . It might be labeled wrong, but try a 20 amp fuse in it to be sure.

Np glad to help

Already tried that, and I found where the relay is in my Jeep, below the steering column. Theres a ton of wires. A TON. In another thread I found that the pink/white cord is to fuse #19, my cig lighter. Not sure if I really want to mess with the relay unless I know exactly what I'm going to do.

Yeah its a mess down there! Another option is to simply run a hot wire right from the battery to your cigarette lighter if you're really needing to use it. Won't be much trouble at all no cutting the stock wiring. the only thing I've.got to say about that is there will be power going to that cig lighter even when the jeep is off. So if you decide to do that just be cautious that if you leave say, an ipod plugged into it overnight it will be draining the battery.( I seriously doubt it could drain it completely but just something to note) for some it might be a plus to not have to have the jeep on to charge stuff. Anyway Goodluck

I just gave up on it for the night. This electric stuff is way over my head, I'll probably have a pro look at it. Thanks for everything!
