    Default Cigarette Lighter Receptacle

    I have a 1997 Tacoma.
    I would like to have the cigarette lighter receptacle "hot" all the time for a cell phone accessory.(Currently it's only "hot" when the ignition switch is in the run or accessory position)
    Can any one tell me which wires to switch around on which fuse block so that I can accomplish this?
    Thanks'
    :happy:

    If you want to do a quicky you could cut the wire to the lighter,tape the end, splice another wire from the lighter to your stereo yellow constant wire and put a 10 amp fuse inline.

    IIRC, the cigarette lighter has its own power source, just needs a "switched" power source for it's relay, and using the suggestion above would do it.
