A penny fell in my cigarette lighter now,I don't have any power to my head lights or brake light


1st of all make sure the penny is out of the lighter. Then check your fuses under the dash the fuse cover and or you owners manual should tell you which fuses are for headlight & tail light. Depending on how new your car is, you may even have some main fuses under the hood in the engine compartment that may have gotten blown.

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


hi,

there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

I have 1999 mercury sable. My power locks, windows and shifting gear stop working after my cigarette lighter melting wires and burning out


By stating what you have found in the cigarette lighter is like you wanted to put fire on your car. BE VERY CAREFUL in future, you cause in your ignorance a strong shortage that's why you had melted and smelly wires. You need a good electrician to rewire and check all the relays and fuses which surely are blown due to this shortage.

A penny fell in my car cigarette lighter and sparks when I try to get it out. How do I remove it?


Find the fuse that supplies power to the lighter socket and remove it (It may already be blown). Once that is done you can safely remove it with a thin screwdriver or tweezers.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.
