Ciggy Lighter not powered Dodge neon 2001

The ciggy lighter isn't powered, I'm assuming that a fuse has blown, I looked in the owners manual and it doesn't say which fuse is for the lighter, I'm wondering if theres a combined fuse or something but I haven't noticed any other thing in the car experiencing a problem.
Thanks in advance

    The fuse for the ciggerette lighter is in the fuse box on the left side of the dash behind the cover. It is a yellow 20 amp mini fuse. It is fuse number 14.

    Found the answer, just thought I would post the solution for other peoples benifit.

Is your lighter working now it doesn't say the problem was solved, if its still not woring here what I need you to do.

Pull out the lighter housing out of the dash and with a test light check for power coming to the housing if you have power at the wire itself replace the housing and the lighter element also.

Heres what happens the housing loses power between the power stud in the center of the housing and the wire connector on the back side so we think it might be a fuse, when in fact it is the housing itself.

No power to cigar lighter on right

Ciggy lighters generally have an independent fuse. Either in the engine fusebox or more commonly under the dash as an inline fuse. Normally directly behind the fitting. Fuse No 12 @ 20amp mate.

I have a 2001 durango 5.9 I can't seem to get the power outlet working I've checked both fuse locations fuses were good but still replaced and still no power at any location my question is there an inline...

take socket out and on the bottom is a wire link from the + connection to the middle connection on the socket and they break internally under the insulation as they can only handle about 10 amp and a power air pump or ciggy lighter uses more power than this

Liter wont work

i assume that you mean the 12 v outlet socket or ciggy lighter ,well having done quite a few of late for the dreaded sat nav i have found that a lot of these units are using a sort of double insulated feed on the socket and if you firstly check for a feed and if you have a feed but it still doesnt work then remove the socket and look on the back and you will see a small wire loop from the + feed to the inner part ,well what happens is this loop wire ceases to function so the socket isnt live .What i do here is to solder a new loop wire between the two connections and it will all work again but do not use a air pump or ciggy lighter in the socket at it could knock out your soldered joint again .

Just need to know what fuse i am looking for for cigarette lighter in a ford mondeo

your ciggy lighter fuse is the same fuse for all the interiour lights etc.. its a 15amp but u can use a 10 amp..its a boring job but the easiest way to see what fuse it is

take out a fuse look at it (there will be a little silver s shaped componant inside) if this is needs replaceing. if its intact its fine..just do that will all your fuse's

the reason i say the above is, in the haynes manual its a 15amp slot 21 but mine didnt have a fuse in the above is alot easier and you can see if any others need changing whilst ya there
