The 12 volt wiring from your cigarette lighter in made to accommodate low voltage requirements ONLY. In the instance where your using a 12 volt ceramic heater if it is made to plug into your cigarette lighter then it probably will be OK. The manufacturer of this device takes responsibility for this when they manufacture it this way. However in the case of much larger ceramic heaters which do NOT come with a cigarette lighter plug and actually have thick gage wires attached then the instructions should recommend that you wire it more directly from your battery and or your fuse panel, it is important that the fuse assembly which comes with the device is also used. The fuse will blow or burn out if too high a voltage or if a feed back from shorting occurs, this will save you from an unfortunate accident. Please always refer to the instructions that come with your device. Do not take any shortcuts or the liability will fall back on you. Also it is best to have a licensed service dept. install the devise if it needs to be installed by hard wiring, that way they are insured to do such repairs and or installations.

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a 94 Mazda MX-3?

not 100% sure that this is the same as 96 model but found out on mine there isn't such a convectional definition. basically pluged a ceramic heater 200w into my cigarette lighter which worked for few seconds and then stopped. checked all the fusses and all of them were ok. managed to pull out the cigarette lighter with the plug and checked the connector. with the ignition on tested the connector and noticede there was power at the connector but on the body of the plug there was a transistor that would have acted as the fuse and looked that it hade taken the strain!I am going to take it to a electronical shop to have it replaced. i belive the cigarette lighter not to be used for accesories that require "fuses" more than 15A. heater i used needed 17A or higher!.Answernot 100% sure that this is the same as 96 model but found out on mine there isn't such a convectional definition. basically pluged a ceramic heater 200w into my cigarette lighter which worked for few seconds and then stopped. checked all the fusses and all of them were ok. managed to pull out the cigarette lighter with the plug and checked the connector. with the ignition on tested the connector and noticede there was power at the connector but on the body of the plug there was a transistor that would have acted as the fuse and looked that it hade taken the strain!I am going to take it to a electronical shop to have it replaced. i belive the cigarette lighter not to be used for accesories that require "fuses" more than 15A. heater i used needed 17A or higher!.

How do you install seat heater in a Subaru Outback?

I have not tried to install a seat heater. Assuming that you have a seat with heater that you wish to use, Subaru tends to not include the wiring unless that option was ordered from the factory. You will need to install all wiring up to the fuse panel.
