    I can't recall off the top of my head, and my wiring manual is on loan (haven't scanned that one yet :whoops:), but I believe the cig lighter is on the IGN fuse which is 7.5 amp - at least on my 97. I could be wrong, but if I'm remembering correctly, that's the one. With my dual batt set up, I had to put in an auto reset breaker cause it kept tripping that fuse if one batt was drained like the 2nd batt gets during the summer with the fridge running 24/7.
