Wonder if anyone has the electric diagram ??? My cig/ auxillary plug is not
working. I think it was shorted out during hooking up a temporary power

You think she would have picked a mechanic or doctor.).
Fuses in the fuse box look fine... need to find my meter to ohm them out.
Are there other fusible links for this circuit ??? Where does the circuit

Thanks in advance !!!
Found the meter.. (too many tools)
Fuses are good... ohmed them out and checked voltage on both legs. Reads
battery voltage about 12.4 volts.
Next step is to check out the 12V sockets. Dunno if they're also fused or not
