Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

2 Answers

Cigarette lighter stopped working

I've checked and there's no coin down inside the socket. I'm told by other on-line sources that the fuse is in the trunk fuse box...#5, 25 amps. There's no 25amp fuses in the trunk fuse box. It's a 2001 3.0 liter S-Type. If the lighter socket has gone bad, where can I get a new one?

I don't have electricval diagram for your S type, however found in the maintenance manual for my 99XJ8 that the fuse is under the rear seat on tha passenger side.

I managed to drop a "nickel" size battery for an electronic devise into my lighter and even though I removed it, it doesn't work. The fuse is not blown as I expected it to be. Guess I'll have to figuere out how to remove the socket to check it out

Good morning need to now what is fuse num 17 in my truck ford explorer xls. as soon is i try to put a fuse it pops

Hello, This 25 Amp fuse(#17) is for your cigarette lighter socket. If you used the socket for something else, you may have bent the terminals inside it. You will need to replace this socket as it is shorting out.

This should not be too expensive. Sometimes the autoparts stores have a display of HELP products for typical repairs and a socket going bad is common.

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!

Cigarette lighter stopped

Go to a junk yard and get a new socket. Or disconnect yours and try cleaning it with a wire brush.
