Cigar Lighter Problems!!! Spider 2000

Looking for any advice on the cigar lighter fuse. Ive locate it and the fuse inside was a glass type tube with 5A on it. It looks fine. Manual says it should be an 8A. I tried that and its still doesn't work. Any suggestions? Deterimined to get this lighter to work.

Is power going to the lighter? Have you cleaned the connectors and grounds? I seem to remember that this circuit is powered at all times and not through the ignition switch. You either have a bad connection somewhere or a broken wire.

No power to the lighter at all. Do you know what fuse is required for this?

Thanks

8 Amp fuse. When you replaced the in-line fuse with an 8 amp fuse did it blow? Check to see if you have power on the circuit just before the fuse; if not you will have to trace the wire back to find the break or bad connection. I belive that it is connected to the "hot" side of the fuse block.
