Check your fuse if thats good take a test light or voltmeter and see if you have any power to the socket. If you don't have power you will need to remove your radio and see if the wires are connected to the socket.

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

2000 year honda civic cigarette lighter not working


check the power in the lighter socket or the charger which is a small transformer has not failed . Try it in another car . If it works there then I would suspect a fuse for the lighter if there is no power there.. Make sure that the adaptor plug is tight as the 2 bars on the side are the earth for the adaptor and if not tight then there may be no earth . Use a flat bladed screw driver and bend the bars out a bit to increase tension in the socket.

Hi, I have 96 mazda miata, it seems cigarette lighter not working, checked the fuse compartment under the dash board and fuse was good. what can i do next? please, thanks.


The lighter itself could have gone bad. The actual cigarette lighter part go bad if they are used frequently. The socket part are less likely to bad but they do on occasion. If you have a car charger for your cell phone or something of that nature you can find out if its the receptical or the lighter itself.

I have a car battery charger that plugs into a cigarette lighter. However, I lost the directins & don't know if the charger itself is charged. Also, How do I use the charger if the car battery is...


I am guessing that you mean you have one of the jumpstart devices that you plug into the lighter socket? If that is the case plug it into the lighter socket turn it on and try to start the vehicle. If that doesnt work or you think the unit itself is dead plug it into the lighter socket on a vehicle that has a fully charged battery to charge it. If you post the manufacturer, model and name of your charger we may be able to find a manual for it than i can answer your question better

Where is the fuse for cigarette lighter for BMW 2000 5 D series


The lighters frequently burn out after a couple of years but you may still have power to the socket. Plug the charger in and check that the charge indicator light comes on. If it does your fine. If not you'll need to remove the socket and check the wires attached to it.

The lighter jack is dead, doesn't work at all to charge my cellph


The lighter socket uses a different fuse to the radio, normally it is at least a 30 amp fuse where as the radio could be up to a 10 amp fuse.

Cigarette lighter sockets no power


Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.
