Radio and cigarette lighter outlet not working on 2003 matrix

Dear sir,
After my daughter plugged in her ipod to the cigatette lighter outlet, it no longer functions plus the radio/cd unit no longer functions.
Power remains for the CD expel/receive mode. Also the clock time appears if the far lower right button is pushed. Clock time also appears if the clock buttons, located far left bottom, are pushed.
We kept thinking a fuse but there is still some power. We can't find the fuse location for the radio and lighter.
Jim

There are 2 fuses that powers the radio, cigar lighter, etc.
They are: the 10 amp "GAUGE" and the 15 amp "CIG".
Look under the dash, on the driver side. The "CIG" fuse is the one that you need to replace.
It is in the middle of the fusebox, bottom row. again, a 15 amp fuse.
Please advise if you need additional information.

Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The cigarette lighter not work


First and most simple, get a new cigarette lighter. Stores sell just the part that plugs into the dash. If that does not solve the problem, check the fuse box. If that is not the problem, you will have to tear apart the dash, usually just take out the radio and replace the entire cigarette lighter.

Radio and cigarette lighter do not get power


The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.

After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

2003 Jetta VR6 fuse question


you will have to look in your owner's manual or remove the fuse panel cover and it may be labled there, with a position number. you will have to look at the position of the diagram either in the book or on the cover then orientate as you look at the fuse box itself. sometimes they lable the fuses with a number under neath each fuse to give it's location. And yes, I don't see why you can't use a charger for your ipod in the cigarette lighter. it should work just fine, people use that for car chargers for cell phones, and lots of other things. if you don't smoke then you don't need to buy an adapter that has one plug on one end to go into the lighter hole and gives you 2 that you can plug things into it...it's called a two in one adapter.
