Default 1998 Mustang Fuse Box

My problem is that when I was messing with the fuse box to fix the fan on my air conditioning. While tickering around I got the air conditioning to work but managed to knock out the cigarrette lighters which I use to power my satellite radio. I think I may have put the wrong fuse in one of them. When I bought the car it came without the fuse box cover so I don't know what controls anything. I was hoping someone could show me a diagram or tell me what on the fuse box powers everything. Thanks in advance.

The cigarette lighter i am pretty sure is in the engine compartment fuse box. When mine went out in my 95 v6 stang thats where it was. When i was pulling out the bezel that goes around the shifter and has the cig lighter in it i popped the fuse, as did i when i had my 98 gt. It seemed weird being under teh hood but it was. I dont know what number it is but open the one under the hood and look for a small fuse to be blown. Hope that helps. As far as a diagram i dont habe my manual so hopefully someone will chime in.

I checked that one....I think.... there's only one yellow fuse and its not busted. I tried changing it out anyway with no luck. My owners guide didn't come with the car. Thanks.

Just check all your fuses and replace the fuse with what ever you take out. It would be better if you had the diagram but you don't so hopefully all the fuses that are in right now are the right amperage.

Hello,
I know that this will be like three years later, but I wanted to know how you got your ac working? And what fuse is it and where is it located?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if yours is the same, but on my 99 the fuse for the lighter is a 15 amp fuse, located under the dash in the middle of the front row, you should be able to find it with a test light or volt meter regardless of the location, just check for continuity on each fuse till you find the one with none, it should be 15 amp. Also make sure no wires or connections came loose.

I found this 1994 to 1998 Mustang engine compartment fuse box diagram. After you click on the link below, be sure to click on the box at the top right side of the page to maximize the page to get the full view of the diagram. Hope it helps. Good luck, Tommy.

Default total fuse confusion

I was able to pull up a copy of the manual on Motorcraftservice.com. However…
I am also having trouble locating the correct fuses for the cigarette lighter & power port on my 98 convertible. The manual shows a diagram for the Fuse Junction Panel (under dash), but the diagram doesn’t look anything like mine. What gives?!?! It has Cigar Lighter listed as a 20A fuse in slot 1 just like Baravelli mentioned above, but that fuse is working.
The manual has the correct diagram for my car’s Power Distribution Box (under hood), but makes no mention of the cigarette lighter here. It does however list an Auxiliary Power Point as a 20A fuse in slot 9. When I looked here there is no fuse in slot 9 so this could be the problem.
I tried to get more clarification by checking the Chilton's Manual, but this only added to my confusion. It shows a diagram for the Fuse Junction Panel (under dash) 96-98 models with no mention of the cigarette lighter and the Power Distribution Box (under hood) with cigar lighter listed as 30A fuse in slot 6. However the diagram for this Power Distribution Box does not match the arraignment in my 98 convertible.
Why are all the manuals wrong or conflicting??? I am so confused now. Does anyone know what fuse controls the cigarette lighter and power port in the center console of a 98 V6 convertible?

Send me a note, I have a 98 GT and lots of time tomorrow if you need something specific. Just send a private note and I can give you a call and look at anything in my car for you.

Thanks, I figured it out. The cigarette lighter and auxillary power port were both on a 25A mini fuse in the Power Distribution Box (under hood).

Thanks for posting this. I was following down the same path with my mustang. And beginning to feel really frustrated.

For any others who find this thread with similar problems. It was a 25A mini fuse in my 98 GT convertible as well. It is in slot 18. (Which if you are standing on the driver’s side facing the engine, is the third down on the left side from the top)
