Re: cig lighter not working
I think Jim and Ron have about covered it, but I wanted to comment on your "the fuse looks good statement". These old cars often develop a layer of rust on the fuse terminals. By using a volt meter referenced to a good ground, you may find that you have power on the fuse terminal, but not the end of the fuse itself. But as Jim said, if the courtesy lights work, then the circuit power is fine.
