Good questions, David.

I didn't know there was a light in the ashtray.

After more fiddling, I believe I am getting power to the lighter. The lighter does seem to get hot when I turn the key to position 1 and manually hold the lighter at the deeper, "heating" position.

Still, however, the lighter will not stay in and heat on its own. I'm left thinking either that I got the wrong part or that the lighter socket is broken, perhaps through prolonged use of lighter-powered cell phone by a previous owner.

If anyone can confirm the proper part number, I'd appreciate it.
