D'oh. My typo. You are correct, it's supposed to be #44 - I corrected my post. But if you look at the picture of my fuse box with the jumper installed, it is in fact on the right side of #44 (just like you have it in yours). Phew! Thought I was really losing it!
So right now the moment I connect the fuse tap itself, the accessory outlets are hot again (without the key in the ignition). I connected the lead to the right side of #44 and they are still hot... plus the blower comes on low.
I'm at a bit of a loss.
No need to trouble yourself though, you've done all you can I think. I'll chalk it up to gremlins (ugly, UGLY car!)
Think I'll run a line from an empty slot that's switched, #52, up to the dash. I don't relish trying to get the wires under the console, but you gotta do whatcha' gotta do.
BTW, hope you got your baby washed! They run so much better afterward, I swear!
Thanks so much!
