According to Vehicle Care...

According to Vehicle Care book the cigar lighter requires a 25 amp fuse in slot 14 in fuse box behind right side kneelboard. It was empty. I put a 25 amp fuse in. didn't work. Puplled fuse out and inspected. There are no stabs. Apparently I have no circuit for the cigar light and thus no way to connect a power adapter to the cigar lighter! .

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

Isn't the Vehicle Care book authoritative? What manual are you talking about?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

1999 Jaguar XK8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XK8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Correction. XJ8.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's it.
