YOU CAN PURCHACE A NEW 12V OUTLET AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE EASY TO INSTALL TOO. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH TRIM. TWIST THE HOUSING OF THE OLD ON TO THE LEFT AND IT WILL UNSCREW. REPLACE WITH A NEW ONE THE SAME WAY. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WIRES THAT WILL PLUG RIGHT IN.

    THERE ARE TWO EITHER 7 OR 8 MM BOLTS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TRIM. AFTER REMOVING THOSE BOLTS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO JUST PULL THE TRIM PEICE OUT. IT HAS CLIPS ON IT, BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK THEM.

It may have burned out the heating element. There may be an inline fuse.

It could be as simple as a blown fuse, could also be a bad socket or bad connections.

Cigarette lighter sockets no power


Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.
