Hello again. Wanted to follow up with y'all on my situation. Upon inspecting the fuse box located under the steering column, I found no fuse that states cig. But I did take a look at the actual cigarette lighter and it seems to have been burned out some point. So I figures I would start there. Now I just need to purchase it. For my fuel gauge issue, have not had the opportunity of troubleshooting it. I am curious tho, if it's not a rusted ground wire. Would it be safe to assume its a defective fuel sending unit?
