I'm new to the forums, so bear with me...

I just bought myself a Jeep (bet you can't guess what kind), and it has a few minor issues that I'd like to correct.

First off, the cigarette lighter doesn't work. I DMM'ed it (with the power plug disconnected from the back of the lighter), and I get a voltage on the order of tenths of volts. The power outlet (opposite the rear defrost, rear wiper, and fog light switches) measures a healthy 12.5 volts. I checked the appropriate fuse, and it's fine. Anyhow, I'm not a smoker or anything, but it would be nice if I could get the lighter to work if for no other value than my own satisfaction. Suggestions?

Also, my rear wiper isn't working as it should. When I flip the switch to the "wipe" position (pardon the laymen's term), it doesn't work. When I depress the switch to the "spray and wipe" position, it operates properly, dousing my rear windshield with refreshing bug corpse remover (how they got on the rear windshield escapes me), and fervently wiping away. I also noticed that the switch is not illuminated when I turn on the parking/head lights. I found a stock replacement switch online - could this solve the problem?

Thanks!
