Heat behind the shifter

Hey Guys

So today we drove to SC and where on the Road and used the cigarettelight alot, when we came home i felt warm air. I try to lacate where it comes from and found out that it is behind the shifter, right where you usualy have the little box for change, ashes of what it the world ever. It was not warm, it was hot...what could that be ?

Heat rises, the engine compartment generates a lot of heat. It will escape anywhere it can. Had C3 corvettes many years ago. They generated enough heat into the passenger compartment to keep me warm in the winter.

Yes look in there. You never know, you could have a major shorted wire or something else that could make you have a carbque.

Hey Guys

Turns out it was as simple as it could be: Not enough Power on the lighter, its fixed. Looks like somebody did something to that before and did not know what they where doing
