OK I says to myself, there must be a relay that controls the cig lighter on this truck.  I'd like my lighter to stay hot all the time for charging devices so I'll just jumper that relay.

 

Except I can't seem to find anything to tell me where that relay is!

 

So....anybody know which relay (and where...I suspect under the glove compartment or behind the passenger kick panel) powers the cig lighter on a D1?

 

This so sounds like a Graeme question....

Definitely like to know this as well, then Don you can teach me said electrical stuff...my coast guard training was in mechanical engineering which was really limited in electrical (since we had electricians and they really wanted to protect their trade) and weapons/explosives.

I'm getting to use the mechanical training alot these days which is great.

Well, worst case I'll just wire it direct to an auxiliary fuse block I've already installed.  But I figured if I can find the correct relay (there has to be a relay) it'll save me the effort.

Don,

 

You think there will be a relay just for that when they wired the oxygen sensor heaters and the fuel pump relay feeds together?

 

Well, the 60A MF5 fuse in the engine bay feeds accessory relay K174, which in turn feeds Fuse F6 and F3 in the fascia fuse box (P126).  F6 (20A) feeds the cigar lighter (yes, cigar, none of this cheap cigarette stuff!), instrument cluster, clock (I expect the light for it), the interior lights, power seat relay feed (if used), vanity mirror, and probably a whole lot more.

 

Pull the wires and run a new feed ....

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

I wondered about that.  I see fuse F6, 20A, feeds the lighter directly.  That means there has to be a switched supply to F6.  But they could also feed other fuses through that switched supply as well and apparently they've done just that.   FWIW, they got it down to a single circut on the relay by the LR3 as I was able to just jumper a specific relay to make the lighter hot full time.

 

The real bummer is I had the console out today doing other work and didn't think about this at that time.  Now I'll have to pull it back apart and run another wire from the engine compartment.
