This is a fuse problem, check the fuse, it will either be marked lighter or power point, the fuse box is to the left of the steering column it has a plastic cover over it, inside the cover the fuses will be marked on a diagram. If the fuse blows again the cigar lighter is shorted, you will have to replace it, most times the lighter element is the problem and not the well it fits into.

Trace the wiring from the liter back and check for power at each connection with a test lite.

Cigar lighters not working - fuses ok


Ideas? Sure. Ahead of those two fuses is the accessory relay. When the ignition switch springs back from start to run, that relay closes and 12V from the 100A (!) J/B fuse in the engine compartment fuse/relay panel passes through the closed contacts of the accessory relay and the aforementioned fuses to the cigar lighter and the auxiliary power outlet. That's all there is to that circuit. Gee, I wonder what kind of cigar requires 100A to light it.

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

The cigarette lighter in my Mazda 6 2003 has never worked since I've owned the car. I bought a new fuse and tried that, but it still doesn't work. You press the lighter in, and it doesn't even pop back out...


Which fuse did you install, and was it good or bad?Are both sockets dead?That car uses 2 fuses , each power outlet has its own fuse. R CIGAR and CIGAR, Fuses 10 and 13 Sometimes there is a fuse built into the cigar lighter socket, If the fuses are good, that fuse in the socket might be bad. If it is indeed bad, you will need a new socket. If you have a test light you can check for power at the center of the socket, if you do have power, then the ground plug may be off.

My power outlets and cigarette lighter outlet do not have power. Which Fuses should i change.


chek on the fuse box for Accessories/ cigar lighter, usually this is 10-15 amps rating. Use a long nose plier to check this out and replace. if the fuse blows off again you must check out the lighter for shorting.

Lighters in my 95 ford windstart not working


in the inside fuse box check fuse 22, this is for the rear cigar/powerpoint socket, also check fuse 28, this fuse is for the front cigar lighter, there is good chance that both fuses are blown, u will need a 15 and 20 amp standard fuse to replace them.

Hi there
If it was the front dash mounted lighter socket you used, the correct fuse is the 15A CIG & RADIO fuse (at the end of the second row) of the dash fusebox. If replacing the fuse hasn't fixed it, you may need to look closer at the wiring from the fusebox as it's likely the wiring has gone open circuit.
Take the fuse out and check for voltage at the terminals in the fusebox with the ingition key turned to the ACC position. One terminal or the other will have 12V on it. If no voltage on either you have a fusebox to ignition key wiring problem. Check for voltage on the ACC pin of the ignition switch, with the key turned to the ACC position. That's pin 3, a blue wire, of the 8 pin ignition switch connector. If still no volatge the switch is likely faulty. the voltage into the switch must be there as it also feeds the ECU and IGN systems, so the car wouldn't run at all if it wasn't.

There is another possibility. If you have an alarm system, immobilizer or turbo timer (assuming the GTT model) these devices could be interrupting the power lines and be the culprit devices.

I assume it wasn't the rear hatch area lighter socket you used, because the fuse for that doesn't power the radio or clock. The fuse for that socket is the 15A ACCESSORY fuse in the passenger side footwell fuse panel.
