    I'm guessing you have swapped for another car stereo, right?

    Right, I have an aftermarket AIWA stereo in the car, but it has it's
    own fuse of the same, if not lower rating. I know that the backlight
    to the cigarette lighter is on this blown circuit. I have had issues
    with the wiring in this area before. Maybe a bare wire to the
    backlight is grounding out on the raido or something else in that
    area.

    Thanks for your help.

    when wiring my GFs old prelude for a stereo, I ended up tying into the cig
    lighter for constant power. Did you wire up the deck yourself? Or did some
    'professional' do it for you?
