Cigar Lighter Wiring

Does anyone know which wires go where on the Cigar Lighter? 97 SW if it makes a difference.

I guessed at it once, and killed a cell phone and the fuse . . .

My wife for some reason thinks the truck should not be in a constant state of disrepair . . .

I think of it as continuous improvement . . .

Thanks!!

LOL! Do you have a volt meter, the polarity may just be backward on the wiring to the plug.

How about makin' it easy for me - what color wires to what post . . .

If reversed polarity means blown fuse and fried cell phone I get it, but what that means for putting it back together it doesn't help . . .

Or if you can tell me how I would check that? It seems like alot of the male baldes on the cigar ligther fit alot of the wires (i.e. only one of them is smaller for a smaller wire)

Thanks a bunch . . .

I cant remember right off hand exactly what the back looks like - but the orange wire goes to the light if you have one, the green wire (switched power) connects to the "center" post and the black (ground) wire connects to the remaining post. If that information fries another cel phone charger, then I was wrong.

If you have a pic that will help - Its just been too long since I installed my lighters.

I believe that the furthest away contact (that hits the 'nose' of the lighter element) is the positive one. The sleeve is the ground. Can anyone confirm?

I can confirm . . .

The red and white wire (or orange) goes to the light, black goes to the blade on the rim, and green and orange goes to the center post. Of course colors probably vary from Defender to Defender

I think the first time I ended up with the ground in the middle and the power to the outer rim . . .

Thanks for the help guys, now on to the next trinket.
