Rich, ---Good logic find!!..
I have noticed many “chargers” we get today for I phone etc do not fit well in the old lighter sockets and the pin in middle can get to one side while putting in , and short out a “lighter” plug meant for a real cigarette lighter , not a power outlet ; it touches metal outer case of lighter socket and center , somehow, which is not really a center contact per se, it is sort of a gripper , grabs lighter edge , very near to the outer wall ---that is live right to its edge . I drive a 67 dart a lot , and 67 cuda, have blown lighter fuse in both more than once with this problem …” .. I tried to clean out garbage giving a poor contact on charger center pin once , with small screwdriver, blew fuse instantly ..
In a ‘64, the power for the antenna comes from a heavy feed to the dash lighter and is always hot. LTR on the fuse box. That unswitched circuit also feeds the glove box light and the map lamp.
Any idea where the red wire gets its 12V from. Antenna works when powered otherwise. Wiring diagram does not show source. All fuses are good.
