The OBD port will not work the cigarette lighter will not work in the 12 volt accessory plug-in on the dash will not work. I have replaced the cigarette lighter still not working. I have checked all connections, I have also checked all fuses they are good. What could be the problem? Thanks for any advice.

Check fuses 41 or 110.

I grabbed you part of a Prodemand diagram.

Click on it below.

I replaced the 110 fuse and the 41still no OBD port still no cigarette lighter, still no 12 volts on the dash. None of the three are working still. One month ago I had the junction box replaced because the gauges and A/C kept flickering on and off. My friend said sounds like the j Box was bad so replaced had it checked out. It was the alternator. Would this maybe be a cause also? My truck manufacturers date is 11/06 which mean it is a early 2007 I believe.

Good afternoon.

I could not read CJ diagram but I attached my own along with the schematic for the connector as well.

Go to the fuse listed and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse all the time. If you do not, that would account for the issues you have.

Lets start there.

Are you talking about the fuse itself or the fuse box where the number 110 and 41 fuse goes? Because I put a multi-meter on each side of the fuse and I get a ding so that tells me the fuses are good.

Yeah, I try to pull it up it will not come up. Like I said all the fuses are good wires are good. I changed out the junction box a while back because I had up flickering in the gauges and the AC were turn on and off. So I changed out the fuse box same exact kind a new fuses. Would that have something to do with my problem?

I will jump back in until Roy cranks back up.

Not saying this is the issue.

But,

You can have juice entering the fuse.

Then

Traveling over the filament to the other leg (side).

You will verify the fuse is good with a meter or test light.

However,

Should there be corrosion on the output leg of the fuse

Or

The "holder" is damaged or melted on that side, the juice will not flow on through the circuit.

I see the corrosion thing on Jeep CJs from time to time due to moisture able to sneak in.

You might actually pull the fuse and inspect its legs and inside of the holder with a good light source.

Back to you Roy!

Every single fuse in the junction box has been replaced still no power to the cigarette lighter OBD sensor or 12 volts. Also my manufacturing date is 11 of 2006 so that would make my truck and early 2007 so that would make fuse 41 my OBD sensor and cigarette lighter. But when I put a fuse back in the 41 slot also fuse 39 it is like it does not want to stay in it is very loose. Also changed the 110 fuse was a brand new one.

Thanks CJ.

I reposted. Check for power at the box. Make sure you have battery voltage at the fuses.

How do I check the voltage at the box with a multi meter or a test light? I believe a multi-meter the leads are too big to fit in. What do you recommend?

You could use a test light to probe them. The end of a test light should be thin enough to get into the top slot of the fuse.

So what you are saying I should do is pull fuse 41 and fuse 110.

Stick the test light down in the slots after I pull out the fuse and see if I am getting any power correct with the key in the on position.

You need to check for power on both sides with the fuse installed.

I used a 12 volt testing light no power on both sides of the fuse from 41 or 39 fuse 110 works fine. Also with the fuse pulled out I stick the probe down inside the fuse box itself still no power on either fuses with key in on position.

Okay, if you have no power to the fuses, that is why you have no power to the plug. You have a wiring issue with the fuse block if there is no power.

Check the fuse box for any damage in the rear where the wires connect.

I got power to all the fuses in the fuse box except for fuse 39 and 41 all others work. Do you believe they are still a short in the box with it just being those two only? Are there wires that go into the back of the fuse box just for those two fuses 39 and 41?
