Customer Question

I wondering if there is a limit to the draw on. 2004 Cadillac using the cigarette lighter. I have a small fridge for medicine plus a phone and small speaker. I'm leaving shortly and need to buy the right adapter but don't want to blow anything.
JA: What is the model of your '04 Cadillac?
Customer: I think like a cts but it's not here it is at my parents
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: There isn't a problem yet. I'm trying to make sure I don't cause one by understanding what the limit is which isn't listed in the manual
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Just that the fridge
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Cadillac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

On a CTS
The Auxillary Power Outlet is rated at 20 amps
The Cigarette Lighter is rated at 30 amps
Meaning you should not use anything that will draw more than the rated amps, & best to be within at least 10%

20 = 18 total

30 = 27 total

IF you need more information, please ask "prior" to Rating.
Please do the right thing and leave a rating, using the rating system, so I may be credited for this Q&A.

The question will still remain open for follow up questions if needed.
If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT today.
Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better.
