    Fuse Box-proof

    Guys,
    I got my car back from the dealer today and they did not replace my fuse as I had asked. Someone posted a while back that by placing a relay in the middle empty relay slot (and moving the fuses as posted here: http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answers/accpower.html) the cigarette lighter would go off with the RAP (retained accessory power). Well, here is the proof that GM "forgot" that relay:

    The underhood diagram shows that space as "spare" (look at your car if you dont believe me)
    The service manual shows it as a "cigar relay" with the pinout going to the "accessories" (at least one pin).
    See Pages here: http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answe...box/index.html

    It appears that the other pins go to "export" features so they may have left it out for cost reasons or because it it wired differently on the V.

    So, needless to say, I am going back with the part number and a copy of the page in hand in order to get my relay and make this work.

    Couldn't we (owners) test this theory by moving say the blower relay into the cigar spot and see if it worked? (*IF* the mini relays the same pn#?)
