It has a large sheet metal nut at the back of the lighter, you need to access this and then unscrew it to remove te old lighter receptacle.

Dashboard light quit working and heater too and cant lock and unlock doors from inside car but will work with keyless entry


Blew a fuse in the fuse panel by your left foot sitting in the car. Look in the owners manual to see which one is the lighter fuse. It's usually a yellow 20 amp fuse.if you pull it out and look at it,you'll see a wire that loops inside it. If the wire is broken,replace the fuse and keep the screwdrivers out of the lighter socket.Good luck!

How to replace cigar lighter on lincoln continental 99 it is not a fuse i need to replace the whole thing


Hi,
To replace the lighter, you will need to get behind the lighter body, which has an outer shell screwed on behind the dash.
Disconnect the connectors on the back, then with the lighter taken out. Hold the inside body, and from behind the dash unscrew the outside body. The lighter will come apart in 2 separate parts.
Thanks

I have a 2005 scion xb and my radio stopped working and my cigarette lighter. what could fix this?


The fuse that runs both is blown. Your manual will tell you the location and type needed to fix it. it will probably be a 10 or 15 amp fuse. Most cars have to fuse boxes. One inside and one under the hood. Most likely it will be in the one inside the car. Also, theres usually spare fuses in one of the boxes, so you shouldn't have to buy one. Check and make sure nothing fell into the cigarette lighter socket, like a coin for example. I've seen that countless times. When you find the fuse, pull it out with the white fuse remover located in the fuse box and put the new one in. Hope this helped! Please rate if it did!

My car lighter came lose and when I tried to screw it back on the piece part of it fell on the inside of the console. Is there a way for me to fix it myself without taking it to a shop.


a repair manual, which you can buy for about 5 bucks on eBay, will have instructions for removing the console. also there are many car repair videos on www.youtube.com. search for "chrysler console", they will all come out pretty much the same

My cigarette lighter 1996 mercury grand marquis


Your thought that the end of something fell into the lighter fried something is likely true. I can't imagine that the wire could be fried and the fuse is still good. check to see if the fuse you checked was the right one. If it was and it is good, a wire on the back of the receptacle may have come lose. The end that fell into the receptacle, did it get hot or damaged? That could be a clue as to if the receptacle was shorted when the end fell into it or if not, then look for a lose connection.

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.
