There is also a temperature fuse just under the ash tray. If you have allowed the temp to rise above a certain level, it will melt and stop the lighter from working regardless of whether you replace the electric fuse. You can replace it with solder wirde, but use copper at your peril as it is a fire safety mechanism.

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter won't work fuse ok lighter base ok

I would put a red volt meter lead on the middle and a the black lead on the outside. If it checks above 12 vols, the lighter itself is bad. If no voltage is present, you have to check all the positive wires back to the battery. If those are all working, you have a bad ground.

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

Check the fuse for the cigarette lighter, replace with same value. Fuse box is either in the glove box, under the driver side dash or left side dash with driver door open.

1994 honda accord can't fine fuse for my cigarette ligher to replace


In earlier model vehicles, the cigarette lighter is on the same circuit as the dash lights/ radio/ interior lights. Maybe it's not labeled as cigarette lighter, try other fuses. also, there should be a fuse panel both inside dash and under the hood. Also, sometimes there can be an in-line fuse right behind the cigarette lighter.

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.

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.

Radio and cigarette lighter


Check behind the dash for loose wiring connections. Check for bulkhead connectors that could have possibly come partially apart. Check for any under dash grounds that are ready to break or have become frayed.
