I agree with emissionwiz is there 12 volt present at the lighter because it is very possible the wire on the back of the lighter came off

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

Cigarette lighter wont work on my 1998 acura 3.2 tl. Dont see a fuse under the hood


The cigarette lighter works only with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position. In the under-dash fuse/relay box, you will find the cigarette lighter relay and the 10A RADIO fuse 11. If the fuse is OK, check 15A INTERIOR LIGHT fuse 57 in the underhood fuse/relay box. If OK, check 50A IG SW fuse 36

Why did my radio and my cig. lighter stopped working?


I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard "All fuses are OK" or "I already checked the fuse" or "I know it's not the fuse"....I'd be a rich man!

When cigarette lighters quit working, 99% of the time the fuse is blown because someting got plugged into it like a defective phone charger. The other 1% of the time, it is because the lighter element is burned out or somebody essed with the wires to the cigarette lighter trying to install some kind of aftermarket equipment.

Humor me and check Fuse #9 (20 Amp) in the passenger side fuse and relay box.

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.

Chrysler Neon 02 get access to cigarette lighter


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.

Cig lighter wont work?


look for the brake light fuse, usually the brake light and cigar lighter are on the same circuit, but it may not be. ytour fuse panel should be under the left side of the dash/ feet compartment. if you have a power tester or a fuse checker use that,with the fuse checker there usually to pegs that you put to either side if the fuse. using either one, if the light stays off don't panic, if the light comes on, then it is another problem
Ok, the light ddi not come on, check to see if you have a good ground, usually there is a power point in evey fuse panel. touch it with your wire tester, put the pointy sharp end on the fuse if there is one, or just try every fuse, if the light comes on, you have a good ground, if not, then wiggle the ground while on a already checked fuse or input point. get a light ? no ? maybe something else is at fault. the cigar lighter is likely th culprit especially if it is the orginal lighter. you can check to see if there is power at the cigar lighter holder, but CAUTION, the end of the case is positive and the walls are negative. do not touch them at the same time, you will get a good short going. if there is a light then the circuit is ok, it is the lighter it's self. if you have access to a ohm meter that produces a audiable sound, set the switch to OHM's touch the solid part of the the lighter with one connector and use the other one to touch the coil on the end of the lighter, if you get a audible sound the lighter may be ok. no sound but the meter moved alot, one side to the other, it is possibly a good unit.
have someone step on the brakes and see if all the lights work, if they do that part is ok, if you have a burnt out bulb replace it start all over. you could take the chance that the fuse was bad, but if you put the fusae in and appply the brake peddle it is going to do 2 things, look at the the tail lights while the peddle is appplied and just have a look at them. one side still off ? replace the fuse and try it agin while observing the fuae in the panel. if it pops and produces a ble/white light for a milliseconod, there are more problems, like wiring underneath the carpet, possibly a bad bulb, check them alll especially the one that is not working, replace it with a new one and see if it works while the brakes are applied. Hopefully we have solved the problem and the lighter works. test the new lighter, throw the old one away unless you are trying to keep it as original as possible. it can be dome, just check around and look for a replacement eleme if that is the problem. I hope that helps all of you out and if you have a question about what I have said, let me telll you that I am trying to rememeber this from my mind, so go easy on me, I am now disabled, nice eh?. but I can still think, cannot do the work, but I know it in my head and what I don't remember, I check in the books that I have FOR NORTH AMERICAN MODELS, and some older japanese models. good luck I hope you get it working, remeber if you are smoking, it's going to catch up with you. don't smoke and enjoy your life ahead of you, there are alot of things to see and do. get off your *** and buy a car, truck, whatever is road worthy and start on small trips and next time a little farther, sooner or later we are going to meet up in california. I am in Canada, Calgary Alberta and I go all over place, I love driving. with my years of driving I have leaned alot of things and have see some spectacular sights, both countries, Cnanda and the US have so much to offer for entertainmet, fun, and the part I like , EXPLORING. Ok, my get out and DO SOMETHING message is finished. peace
