Utility cigrette lighter in dashboard

I tried to pump up a tire, using the dashboard cig. lighter utility for power. I heard a fiss type sound and the cig. lighter was dead. The fuse for the cig. lighter is good. The dashboard cig. lighter does not work and the one in the console never worked. What could the problem be? The cig. lighter unit itself. Is there another fuse that is part of this configuration that I am not aware of?

    I took the car into my mechanic. He found that there there is another fuse under the dashboard that is not listed on the Fuse boxes or in the manual. The fuse was changed and now both the dashboard lighter socket and the one in the console work. The one in the console never worked from the day I bought the care.

    Console and dash power outlet don't work. I would like to know the location of the fuse in either the dashboard or under hood fusebox.

Having trouble with fuse # 17th

From my wiring diagram power for the radio is fuse # 29 a 25amp fuse! The fuse for cig lighter also powers the DLC Pin # 16 . The DLC is the connector under the dash left of the steering wheel . This is where you would hook up a scan tool ! Are you saying by part dash lights ,that some of the dash lights are out ? Could just be some burnt out bulbs ! Was fuse # blown ? Did you cig light work before ? Could have a shorted out cig. lighter or the outlet ! To fix dash bulbs the instrument cluster would need to be pulled ! How to Replace Dashboard Lights In Depth

Is it better to have a air compressor with a cig lighter or battery connection

It depends. If you run a small compressor for a long time using a cig lighter yes it can blow the fuse. The compressors with clamps skip that problem, but you have to open the hood and be able to access the battery posts to use it.

Sounds Like You Have An Exposed Hot Wire Somewhere. I Would Try And Change Cig Lighter Wiring Harness. Be Sure And Check Your Aux Outlets So That There Are No Exposed Wires. They All Run On The Same Fuse Hope This Helps!!
