I have a 99 OBW. I use the cig lighter socket to power a small air pump. It is great for keeping tires pumped up to correct pressure. Last time I used it, I over heated the air pump motor in pumping up a very low tire, and blew the fuse in the cig lighter socket. The fuse panel down on driver's side foot well indicates which fuse is for the cig lighter, however, I checked that fuse, and it is not blown. I checked a bunch of other fuses (particularly 20 amp) in that same fuse box, but can't find a blown fuse.

Also, the fuse box label says the same fuse is used to operate both the cig lighter and power door mirror motors. The power mirrors still function, so maybe the fuse is okay.

The air pump works properly when plugged into the outlet in the cargo area, so I don't think the pump is the problem.

Anybody have any advise?

Check the wiring/soldering on the back of the lighter. I think it was talked about a long time ago. Might want to try a search.
