Default Re: No current?

Trace the wire back from the cig lighter to .... well to however far back you can. Cut back some insulation and use a volt meter to see if you have power (remember to tape up the cut afterwards).
If you do have power, then you have a short somewhere between there and the cig lighter. If you don't, then keep tracing the wire back until you find power.

When you do have power, you can trace forward till you find the short.
Or do the easy method and splice in a bypass wire from power to the cig lighter.
Or do the really easy method, and just splice a bypass wire from the fuse to the cig lighter.
