I'm pretty smart in a lot of areas, except this one. I've managed to drop a penny down into my AC/DC outlet (aka cigarette lighter). Even with the vehicle turned off and key removed, this still seems to be live (banged on the side and the penny sparked!! ). Is it OK to use needle nosed pliers with insulated handles to remove this without setting my hair on fire?? Unfortunately, the auto electric shop two blocks away is closed on Saturdays otherwise I'd just have those fine chaps risk this one!! Is this a "Sandi can do" or a "Sandi shouldn't"???
