Question about 2006 Chrysler Neon

Chrysler Neon 02 get access to cigarette lighter

How do you remove the center dash panel to get access to the cigarette lighter in an 02 Chrysler Neon? The lighter isn't working and all the fuses in the fuse panel seem to be OK so I wanted to see if there is another fuse near the lighter and to check to see if the was power at the lighter itself.
I imaging that the center console cover may just snap off or that there may be 1 or 2 screws fixing it on however I can't find them and don't want to just pull teh cover off and break things.

Yah, usually about 4 clips I believe, near the corners. Tried a quick pull eh? If you don't want to go through all of that, by a 12vdc test light if you don't have one already, and very carefully & steady (don't touch side & bottom at same time, you'll pop the fuse) touch probe at dead center of the socket, with other end attached to good ground, it will light up if power there. Or, take fuse out for lighter, and use a screwdriver or something to scrape & clean the contact at bottom center of the socket, and then replace fuse, & try socket to see if it's working.Sometimes it's just a dirty contact.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.

02 accent ciggarette lighter wont work


They hyundai service manual says the following.

(1) After removing the ashtray remove the facia panel mounting screws
(2) Then disconnect the connector from cigarette lighter
(3) Disconnect thermal fuse case from socket end
(4) Remove the ring nut and separate cigarette lighter socket from the thermal protector.

I hope this helps. I have never had to replace one (yet) so I can't give exact directions. Even if the fuse looks good you may want to replace it and see if that fixes it first. Sometimes they have miniscule hairline cracks that are hard to see. Hope this helps
