Re: 2000 Cherokee cigar lighter not working?

If you have a multimeter (VOM) check the voltage going thru the fuses in the passenger kick panel beneath the glove compartment and the PDC inside the engine compartment near the battery. Just because the fuse looks good; doesn't mean it is.

Re: 2000 Cherokee cigar lighter not working?

i will try replacing both of the 25 fuses......i was wondering if another fuse could be blown? like......does power go thru anything else that would affect the power outlets and lighter? its just weird that they both quit at the same time, and they have seperate fuses as far as i know.......i dont know much about the electric system of the Jeeps.....ty for the reply!

Re: 2000 Cherokee cigar lighter not working?

i replaced both the fuses in #1 and #2....and the lighter and the 12V outlet still dont work......think it could be that cigar lighter relay in the diagram you posted? i never messed with a relay, do they just unplug? ty for posting all that info, i saved it for future reference!!!!

Re: 2000 Cherokee cigar lighter not working?

The relay should just pull out, but that doesn't explain the loss of power for the 20A power receptacle.
I am on travel in Yosemite Ntl Park and don't have access to the wiring pin outs of the factory service manual. You should purchase one for your Year Jeep if you intend on keeping the vehicle for several years. Definitely one of my best early investments for the Jeep.
