Thank you once again Don! And thanks to all for pointing me in the right direction. That cigar cable was completely fried all the way up that seat!

the lighter was from another 1954 Packard patrician so no issues there

I’m at school at the moment but the issue most likely is the breaker you mention as neither the trunk light nor back light function. (Only from the passenger side door?)

Your assumption of the wire going back up to the headliner being in a healthy state is correct. As far as i can see it go back up the top it seems perfectly fine.

I will use the image provided as reference. Thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot for the insight. The seller mentioned the small hole burnt in the carpet but I hadn’t bother to check until yesterday. You are right. It would’ve been a great shame if after putting that new cigar lighter in to try it out the whole car went up in smoke. I will remove the seat and try to follow the wire all the way up. I was thinking about reupholstering anyways.

My mistake for not mentioning the year. It is a 1954 patrician. The cigar lighter was missing from the car when I bought it so bought one from another patrician of the same year and put it in. It actually worked (though barely) so it most likely is. So is the issue with the fuse you’re mentioning or just faulty wire splicing?

Power seat cable?

Hey there friends. Decided to do some poking around the back seat area and found a small burned hole in the carpet. I removed the carpet and found this bad boy there. Miracle the car didn’t go down. It seems like the red wire was merged together with the one going to the seat with that black thing. Is this the cable that goes to the power seat? Because if so it still worked up until I unconnected the battery and cut it to replace it. Haven’t tried anything since. Wondering if it is in fact the power seat cable and what gauge wire to use to replace. Because if the merging of wires wasn’t original then it means whoever did it obviously did it wrong.

Thanks again for the information. I’ll have to make the investment. Quick question… How do you test for proper tension at the generator belt?

What voltage regulator with 1954 patrician

Can anyone tell me the original delco voltage regulator number that came with the 1954 patrician? The one that was on is an after-market pile of rust inside and out with no brand. Looking to buy a replacement. Any suggestions?
