A short in the phone charger has blown a fuse in the fuse box. If it is not behind a removable panel on the driver's side of the dash, consult you owners manual for location.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Driving to work this morning I plugged my cell phone charger into the cig lighter socket and lost power to the radio and lighter socket as well as the side mirror adjustment - all are dead.


The radio and lighter are on the same fuse. You'll have to find the fuse. On most cars the fuse box is under the dash to the left of the driver.

After a phone charger disassembled in the lighter socket some parts of the lighter must have shorted in the socket. I checked the fuse under the dash but it doesn't look to be blown. The lighter,


The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

Radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light


The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)

1991 s10 pickup radio and cig. lighter shrts out


You need to replace the lighter socket. Both of my 1988 S10's had the same problem after a few years of using my cell phone battery charger in the lighter plug. I replaced it 10 years ago and it has been fine ever since. Something in the original socket wears out and causes it to short out when something is plugged in. Good luck!

Cigarette plug does not work


Try plugging something else into the lighter socket,,,if it is getting power then you should suspect the phone charger, if it isnt,,then suspect the fuse,,,just open the fuse box cover and you will find the list and description of all the fuses and their locations there.

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.
