Suzuki vitara 2006 cigarette lighter is not working

When you say cigarette lighter does not work, do you mean the insert part, which heats up to light a cigarette, or do you mean the socket? You can test the socket by plugging in a cell phone charger or similar device to see if there is any electricity. If not, then it would be the fuse. To find the fuse, check the net for a manual, stop by the dealer/parts department and ask where it is, or ask at repair shops in gas stations.

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

Should be under the steering wheel like any other car. There is a box. Just open up the box (You may need to pry off the cover with a flat head screw driver). I own a 91 Explorer and there is a diagram right on the back of the cover along with a fuse pulling tool. The owners manual will also have a diagram. Look for the terms "Accessory", "Lighter", "Socket" etc. Any Ford I've ever seen supplies power to the cigarette lighter even when the car isn't running so it will be easy to test.

Fuse is located under the spare tire well and is in the fuse panel and is an 20 amp fuse that is slightly misaligned on the middle row of the box. This will fix cigarette lighter in ash tray in lower middle cluster of radio and a/c.

Try they have free reference and repair manuals, it most definitely should be a fuse. I have seen that many times...most parts stores will help you with checking the fuses.

try this link as well...better then the owners manual...HOPE THIS HELPS : )

additional link if the above link is inoperable...just scroll down to the 4th entry for the pdf link of the fuses.

The cigarette lighter does not work on my 1997 Toyota Camry. Where is the fuse for the lighter?

it wil be located in the fuse box, the fuses should be listed on the box or inside the box and again in your owners manual. If you can not locate this way you will need to pull each fuse till you find the burnt fuse replacing with the same amperage fuse. Cigarette lighters can and do go bad, if you find no burnt fuses the lighter can be bad. This can be checked with any 12 volt plug accessory. Good luck.
