1997 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 196000 miles
The cigarette lighter in my 1997 Ford Taurus is always on ('hot'). As I use this for my GPS, I would love it, if I turned off the ignition, the power is also disconnected from the lighter socket.
Doing some research, I found out that in the fusebox, the lighter should be connected to fuse 20 / 5A / Integrated control panel, remote entry, cigar lighter.
Now I was thinking, would it be better to disconnect the lighter power-cable from this fuse and connect it to fuse 8 / 5A / Power antenna, radio control unit, GEM?
If so, what wires should I be looking for and would it be easy to do? I do not have much experience with the wiring in this car (or any car!), So please go easy on me ohnoes. Gif
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!
have the same problem?
