cigar lighter..what did i do?

Hey I had my fairing off and thought I would check to see why my lighter blows the fuse if I use it for my GPS or phone. I used a volt meter to check to see if the wires were backwards. As soon as I touched the ground it sparked and I heard a very low click come from the fuse area. I thought it had blown the fuse but it didn't, there is no voltage to the lighter, or the ACC switch or the lighter I have plugged in to the accssorie under the seat. I have a repair manual but have no idea how to tell if there is a relay or another fuse that would have blown when I tried fixing it. Shoulda just left it like it was. I checked the fuse by the meter and I know its good (didn't just look at it) When I stick the meter into the fuse plugs it reads (I don't remember for sure) but 12.5 or 13 volts. But nothing at either lighter. By the way its a 2011 ultra. Thanks for any help you can provide.

It's the P&A fuse, I think the number 3 fuse, is that the one you checked or did you check the 8 fuse?

I actually checked them all. but the one I checked voltage on was the top row 2nd from the left. Sorry I don't remember the location. It has a orange/red wire like the lighter.

If you have a test light hook it to the negative battery terminal and turn the ignition on and check both sides of each fuse for power. If each fuse on both sides has power then start checking the connectors

I checked continuity across all of them, I will check them with a light. Is the ACC and lighter on the same circuit?

Will it show a code for this? It starts and runs fine, as near as I can tell it has only effected the lighter and the ACC. I'm leaning to the Ignition switch.

no lighter

It's p&a fuse #4. Top row 3rd. From left. Also check connector bk 1a-1b. Make sure you pull fuses and check continuity. Using a test light can give false readings. I AM LOOKING AT A 2011 MANUAL. NO GUARANTEES YOURS IS THE SAME.

I have heard that some of the cig lighters are wired in reverse. This may be why your blew a fuse using gps. So since your fairing is off, you may want to switch the wires around.
