I assume that you tried the cigarette lighter itself and didnt rely solely that the charger was working properly. When you tightened the ring on caseing did you see that the wire connected on the back of the lighter was properly attatched, sometimes a good connection loosens up especially if caseing was found to be loose.. Well assuming it was properly connected you could test the circuit with either a multimeter or 12 volt test light if power is found at connection then you problem is definetly the cigarette lighter assembly itself.. I hope this was helpful...Let me know I would appreciate it

Your lighter should be on a twenty amp, assy fuse I believe. Have you checked to make sure you have no voltage at your lighter, if so it is the fuse. all assy on every car have fuses

You likely have a blown fuse. I have heard using the cigarette lighter for charging your cell phone can blow the fuse - was told to use the charger inside the center console for charging my cell phone.

Is the cigarette lighter also the plug for cell phone charger?


The cigarette lighter plug should also work for the phone charger as long as the phone charger uses the cigarette lighter style plug(long with two metal contacts on the sides and a button contact on the tip). Most standard car chargers will fit both cigarette and auxillary style plugs.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work in my 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis


sounds like the lighter itself is bad because the fuse for the lighter is the same as the fuse for the connecter in which the inspection machine plugs in to.

The cigarette lighter stop working.


if the fuse is good, it probably is the lighter socket.
If you can, check voltage with volt meter in socket. touch one probe to metal side, other to center terminal at bottom of socket.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work


First look inside the lighter socket and see if you have some money or something in there. Then check your fuse. Luckily the lighter is a easey fix. If its niether of these things. check the wires going to it.
