This has to do with the cigarette lighter fuse. The cigarette lighter has gone out thats on the dash on the drivers side. I do know its the fuse. I have seen post saying look here or here. I have looked in the fuse box in the glove box and under the hood on the fire wall and haven't found it yet. Does anyone know the EXACT spot or location that fuse would be on a 2014 freightliner cascadia?

Thank You Sean

they are located behind the glove box.

That's it - there's a few screws inside the glove box that you remove, then you pull the whole thing out. You'll see the fuses then.

After you remove the case in the glove box there is a map on the top of the case that tells you exactly which ones...off the top of my head I know 15, 17, 31, 32 are the sleeper 12v. Just did this.

There is a YouTube video that shows you how... I laughed when I saw it was a prime video. Lol

You could call your company tractor shop too. I did after I checked all the fuses and they were all good. Turned out I had a loose wire.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Thanx for all the help. I've been in the fuse box in the glove box many times. For some reason can't find the cigarette lighter fuse. Maybe it's under another name. I'll go back and look again. Once again. Thank you.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

***UPDATE***

Finally found the fuse. It was (F7) in the glove box. On the glove box schematic it's wrote up as (Dash Pwr RCPT 2, Bat) this is the cigarette lighter plug on the dash. I'm glad that's over with. Thanx to all.

Since there's no such thing as a "cigarette lighter" anymore (I don't even think it's an OPTION) - Dash Power Receptacle is what it's going to be labeled. BAT means it's wired directly to the battery - and not through a relay.

Did you find that in the manual I posted the link to? (just trying to verify it's accuracy for future reference)

There are TWO FUSES labeled that way (1 & 2). They are both 15 Amps. Replace them with the same amperage rating. If they keep blowing, you are overloading the circuit. If you replace it with a higher amperage fuse, you may burn up the wires, or burn down the truck (worse case scenario - more then 22% of highway fires are electrical in origin).

Were both outlets not functioning? Were both fuses blown (F6 & F7)?
