Will anything fit into my cigarette lighter? (92 YJ)
My 92 YJ doesn't have A/C, so I practically die when the weather gets really hot. I looked around and found portable fans powered by a cigarette lighter, so I went and made sure my lighter worked, and sure enough it still does (everything inside is original), so I went ahead and bought a $20 fan, got it and assembled it, started my Jeep and the adapter doesn't fit into the lighter, I tried twisting it every way it could go and even pushing in the side pins, nothing. But, I tried plugging it into my mom's Blazer (2004) and my dad's Trailblazer (2008) and it didn't fit into theirs, either. I sent it back, but before I buy another fan, I was wondering if there was any hope for some cool air this summer, or if I have to suffer the heat with a crap battery-powered fan you'd only see at peewee baseball games.
Yes you can say things like "roll the windows down" or "take the top off", but 1, I have soft doors so I'd have to take the windows out, which is a pain to put back in when I'm cutting it close for work and school, and 2, I'm in Ohio and we're having a rainy summer here, so I don't want to have to call off work every time I see dark clouds coming (my top always shrinks, so it's hard to put it back on instantly).
