If the people who hooked the radio up did it right you should have an in line fuse on each wire in the back of the radio check and change the burnt out fuse if not the radio is no good

you can test all fuses with a voltmeter, key on, 12vdc on both sides

How to fix no lowbeam headlights on 97 geo metro


did you check the HL fuses? x2
are both dead? or just one?
Highs work , right,?
would you like to guess, ?
or test? have a volt meter, and a schematic.?
DRL or non DRL system? (daylight running lamps).
2 systems, DRL is mostly in CANADA but no always,
when did they both last work, dont know, or last week>???
if dont know, why not test the lamps to see if they are good
using any 12vdc battery over 5amp current.
or use and OHm meter on the filaments, for lows. 0 ohms good
infinity bad.
to go father, we need what type HL system is on car.
DLR or not. DLR love to fail. for sure.

Fuse cigarette lighter


charge?
the cig is very simple, its just a connector and a fuse.
if you have 12vdc on both sides of the CIG fuse. key on
then the CIG socket is bad, or the wire behind it fell off
or the Cig ground wire fell off.
a voltmeter will tell you which is bad, and why.
its just a 2 wire circuit, power and ground
fuses that look good can in fact be bad, (hair line cracks)
so use the OHM meter part of you meter, and check for
0 ohms good
infinity ohms bad, works 100% of time , ohms checks, no guessing!@

Cig lighter works 4 cigs but wont charge satnav however much i twiddle about with it, help!!


Try checking the fuse inside the charger. Ths may be blown. Have you tried another charger in its place ex. cell phone or radar detector? If works for the cig lighter should charge.

Looking for the cigarette lighter fuse


Check all fused related to audio, dome light or instrument cluster. Try plugging a cellphone charger into the socket for cig lighter, if this works then you need a new cig lighter.

The cig lighter is probably part of the circuit tied to radio instrument cluster or dome lights, if any of those are out too, then it is likely a bad fuse or bad ground. Look for corresponding fuse and kill 2 birds with one stone hopefully by replacing the faulty fuse.

If you locate and replace a faulty fuse and the problem persists, you may have a bad ground. This is a bit more involved. I would guess by your question that you will need to have someone service it for you.

The fuse should be beside the accellerator pedal behind a black cover. Should be a yellow 20amp in the middle row, at the end, closest to the front of the car.
