    The fuse will be in your fuse panel, all XJ's use the "plug" in fuse so if you do not have a test light(which you should) you can easily tell if it is blown.
    Take care

    97 up is beside passengers right leg...it's a 25 and I believe the top left??
    pre96 is driver's side...on firewall in front of left leg.

    I have a CB spliced into the '99's cig lighter and anytime I go to plug in the lighter or accessory into the socket it blows. It strange cause on the 90 I have three extra sockets spliced in plus the CB/tire inflator/etc. and it never blows a fuse. Anyone know if I can just shove in a higher amp fuse into the 99 without any problems?

    I have a 2000 also, yes the fuse is by the passengers right leg, top left, white 25 Amp fuse. Make sure you use that handy tool on the fuse door to get it out, cause its a pain in the ass. I also had your problem, make sure you get a ton of extras becuase they blow alot. I have a CB, HAM radio, flashing lightbar, radar detector all spliced into one plug. If it is the passenger side outlet, that is the fuse, if its the drivers side, its the fuse below the top left on i think.

    Usually not without risk, unless you beef up the wires. The fuses are geared to the size of wires on that circuit and are intended to be the weak link on the circuit so they blow before the wires melt. Going with a bigger fuse can be like going un-fused. However, there is a safety factor built in, so you MIGHT get by putting a 30 in place of a 25 or something like that. But if you're blowing a lot of fuses, you really ought to rewire.

    Unhappy

    I am having the same problem with my '98! As soon as I put the new fuse in, the damn thing blows. I do not want to hassle with it right now, weather issues, but eventually I will try to fix it. I think that the cig. lighter is bad, or shorting the fuse out. I am not sure. At anyrate, my '98 is full of electrical gremlins. It is really pissing me off. Anyone have a problem with the horns mysteriously honking, and staying on? It is really agrevating!!!!!
