98 Ranger Fuse Box Diagram

I was wondering if anyone could help me out by knowing where a Fuse Box Diagram of my 98' Ford Ranger is. I think i may of blown a fuse for my Cigerrette lighter and 12V Plug-in. They both don't work, and i checked the wiring behind them to make sure they were plugged in. I just installed a new CD Player, and it sparked one time when i was installing it and im wondering if that didn't blow it. Anyone else have any idea's on why my cigerrette lighter and that 12V plug don't work?

Welcome to FTE!!!!

The diagram should be in the owners manual, if you don't have one try this link.

If you saw a spark I bet you blew a fuse.

It's easy to test a fuse with a VOM meter.

I wouldn't change the fuses just be on the safe side.
It seems apparent you blew the fuse for a reason, NOT just old age.
You can also check the fuses with a test light without removing the fuses.

Put the alligator clip on a known good ground, and touch both sides of "shiny metal"
on the tops of each fuse.

Your test light will light, if the fuse isn't blown.

Hey I had the same problem after I installed my pioneer. Keep in mind that there is also a fuse for the radio in the fuse box under the hood on the drivers side of the truck. My suggestion is before you replace any fuses make sure you pull the cd player and check that all the wires are hooked up correctly and either have soderless connectors on them or electrical tape so that none of them can ground out and blow another fuse. I hope this helps

OK, found the Owners Manual via the link posted by KEN00...thanks mucho....that was immensely helpful. Found out there was no fuse in the slot, put one in, and sure 'nuff the dome light wouldn't go out! WD-40 did the trick, and now I'm in business. Didn't have to fool with that crazy dome light cover after all!!!

Thanks for your help,
Tom
