Never seen a 'misc' on a Challenger fuse block. Sounds like an aftermarket item. If it still has the original fuse layout, tell me which fuse it is I can tell you what it is supposed to feed?

The Misc fuse powers the following stuff:

Map Lamp
Ignition Lamp
Glove box Lamp
License Lamp
Side Marker Lamps
Tail Lamps
Cigar Lighter
Parking Lamps
Ignition Lamp-Time Delay
Instrument Lamps -Cavity 5
Switch Title Lamp - (I don't know what this means)
Clock

Except for the lighter and clock, it's all lights.

Thats a 70 fuse block for example. Cig lighter and tail light fuse is on the constant hot "battery" side of the fuse block. The wire color off of the "misc" fuse would be helpful.
