Default ECC, Stereo & Lighter Plugs..... not working...

I think (hope) I just blew a fuse.

My ECC (air conditioning), Stereo, lighter plugs and the auto/light sensor are not working.
(By auto/light sensor, I mean the thing that turns on your headlights & dashlights automatically when it gets dark)

I had a battery pack charging thru the cig lighter and I think I may have blown a fuse.. at least that'* what I'm hoping.

I just had the car cleaned, and I put the manual in a safe spot before I had it detailed.... just can't remember where that safe spot it.

Anyone know what fuse that might be?
(it'* my 91 btw)

According to my 90 reference material, fuse 11 runs all this stuff: radio, front cig lighter, keyless module, multi finction chime module, cluster and glovebox light. No mention of the twilight sentinel on that fuse though.

Cluster and dash lights work fine.....
But the wiring is different between the 90 & 91.... slightly....

check for nickel in cigg lighters or shorted out cigg lighters, happened to me.

that fuse 11 had to blow about 10 times for me to figure out what was going on.

do you have an aftermarket deck?

I had this problem happen about 3 times when I was removing the dash. Do you use the tray for the cig lighter a lot? Like opening and closing it frequently? You may want to pull it out [there is a tab in the center that you push up to remove it], and check the connection on the back. If there is any question to the wires touching, you may want to wrap some electrical tape around them. Other than that, it could just be a fluke. But it could be related to your aftermarket HU drawing too much power. Remember one member posted a mod to put larger gauge wire to your HU? You may want to route the HU off that fuse, because there is a good likelyhood that'* what caused the fuse blow.
