cigar lighter

The cigar lighter (on the left bottom side of the center console has strange voltage. It is supposed to only be on when the key is in the ignition or accessory position. When it is off I get a voltage reading of .034 volts with my digital multimeter set in the automatic mode.
I have been looking at the wiring diagram on pg. 8W-41-4 of the FSM. Could there be a problem with my cigar lighter relay? The only other path for the voltage to the socket is from the trailer tow circuit breaker through fuse 26, which I don't have.

You will get a tiny reading like that on almost any circuit you put your meter over in the whole Jeep. Quite normal. Its three hundreths of a volt!! Put the probes of your meter one in each hand and you probably generate more volts than that!!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
