: 1987 Allante Cigar / Cigarette Lighter

I just bought a 1987 Allante, I tried to plug my cell phone charger into the lighter plug and got nothing. I tested the plug with a test light and it is Hot. Is this a common problem.

I am pretty sure that the 'Cigar Lighter Socket' in the Allanté was NOT a standard size for the American market; I think that there are some previous posts on this subject, and how you can get an adaptor to fit, etc.

I'll search again. Before I started the thread, I did a search for "allante lighter" and didn't find anything. Thanks.

It uses the same lighter and similar socket to a late 80's Mercedes.
