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.

In Subarus the temp control for the heater does not control the coolant flow, just airflow past the heater core. If you get no heat, there is no coolant in the heater core -- either there is no coolant or it is not circulating.


How do you change a cigarette lighter in a suzuki sidekick?

Take the ashtray out and remoive the 4 screws you see there. Then, take the stereo out and remove the other two screws that hold the faceplate on. Remove the knobss off the heating/cooling controls. Slide the face plate off and guide the heater controls through the opening. You now have a clear view and easy access tothe back of the cigarette lighter assembly. Unplug the electrical connector and unscrew the locknut from behind the cigarette lighter receptacle. The whole assembly should come out along with the small rectagular metal plate that goes around the receptacle. If you have very small hands and you have three of them, you can also remove the lighter by going up behind the console by hump on the driver's side. Good luck! And, good luck finding a replacement. New ones can cost as much as $70! K

How does an electronic cigarette work?

The e-cigarette creates a vapor containing nicotine that you inhale similar to the smoke created from a real cigarette. An e-cigarette is a battery-operated vaporizer, which contains a small heater. When air is drawn through the e-cig by the user, the battery energizes the heater, which vaporizes the liquid in the cartridge, and is drawn into the user's mouth/lungs. e-cigs come in disposable and rechargeable types. Rechargeables are very cost effective, as compared to tobacco.
