cigarette lighter

Postby Fiatsun1 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 8:34 pm

I have a 79 Spider and the cigarette lighter has a connection post on the side. I have the red and yellow connected but am wondering what goes on the side prong. I have a white with black dots wire connected to a black wire that is not connected and a black wire not connected. Not sure if they belong on the lighter. Anyone have a picture of how this should be connected. :roll:

looking at my scans of the electrical diagrams I see a red, a black and yellow black which is connected to the yellow as the three wires to the "cigar" lighter.
