Radio and cigarette lighter

My radio and cigarette lighter stopped working mysteriously.  The fuse seems okey.

    I have already tested and replaced the 7.5 A Radio Fuse.

    The radio and  cigarette lighter both went dead when I inserted  (a possibly shorted)  3 to 1 adaptor.  It certainly acted just like a blown fuse.

    Robert,  Though I am suspicious that the 3 in 1 adaptor was the problem, I really am interested in getting the radio to work, not so much the adaptor therefor, I haven't attempted to use the adaptor again.  Do you have any more ideas on how to get the radio to work.  It all happened at the same time, so I don't think it is the radio itself, but some kind of a connection it has to the the odysee. Thanks, I really appreciate your help here.

Funny you should mention this! I had the same problem in Aug. First, there is another fuse for this circuit in the underhood fuse box - a 15A one. It will probably be blown. Try a new fuse there but it will probably blow again. The reason it will have blown is probably because the retaining nut at the back of the lighter has come off allowing the unit to short out. To fix; the complete lower dash has to be removed in order to re-install the lighter (which is a *****)!!! Then you can replace the fuse. I was in travel mode at the time so I had a dealer fix it for $77. ! Good luck.

Remove the fuse and test it for continuity.... or just replace the fuse anyways as they always seem to put the lighter and radio on the same fuse.

    so now we know what the mystery was that it stopped working. have you attempted to use the 3 in 1 adaptor again ?

    check the fuse one last time to see if it is blown. if it has there is an electrical problem and you need to have troubleshooting done on the vehicle to locate the problem.

    any lights on the radio at all ?....

    if so there may be another fuse for it. my ford premium sound has one for the radio and one for the amp.

    admittedly it is a long shot but unhooking the battery for 10 minutes and hooking it back up may do it as well.

Cigarette lighter fuse location

its in the fuse box. but no year, stated, so impossible to be more clear
open glove box, extract the operators guide, see page called fuses.

or just look, see the fuse box
see the one marked CIG.?

on my 04 GV, its fuse marked CIGAR #39 , plain as day.
and runs my radio too, so if blown on my car, the radio dies.
try posting a year.

Why did my radio and my cig. lighter stopped working?

I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard "All fuses are OK" or "I already checked the fuse" or "I know it's not the fuse"....I'd be a rich man!

When cigarette lighters quit working, 99% of the time the fuse is blown because someting got plugged into it like a defective phone charger. The other 1% of the time, it is because the lighter element is burned out or somebody essed with the wires to the cigarette lighter trying to install some kind of aftermarket equipment.

Humor me and check Fuse #9 (20 Amp) in the passenger side fuse and relay box.

My cigarette lighter and radio stopped working in my 2000 Toyota RAV4...which fuses do I change to see if this will help the problem? I cannot seem to find a diagram on-line anywhere.

The fuse box cover will show the location of the fuses relative to their function, failing that check through the higher rated fuses for the lighter one.

My child pushed in the cigarette lighter until

you could be lucky and the fuse blew, and it could be a burned wire, check the fuse panel and replace the fuse if blown, if it blows again you have to fix the wires, and possible the cigarette lighter if it got damaged

Radio and cigarette lighter not working 1991 mercedes 190e

Spin or replace the fuse as the old aluminum fuses build up corrosion and dont work, or work on and off.

If its an after market radio check by removing unit and checking for fuses in line.

Radio CD not working & lights don't flash remote keylock

Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences
