Hi Rudy

You will have to inspect the cigarette lighter closely, I suspect your son has bent the 2 terminals that make contact with the lighter, and this will continually giving you a dead short and blow your new fuse.
As for the other problem, your idea of shrink insulation sounds perfect.

Good Luck !
John.

Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

SOURCE: cigarrette lighter (front) in 2002 ford explorer - all fuses good. Key inside lighter caused a spark and it doesn't work.

Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies, page 210. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone.

Why doesnt lighter element get hot


Lighter elements burn out often, especially if used often. They are a universal fit product, and can be inexpensively purchased at any auto parts store, or Big-Box store. They simply screw on & off, while holding the knob that you push on !!

Those things are not built well, the coil that heats up usually fails. You can get one at autozone etc.

WHERE IS FUSES FOR CIGARETTE LIGHTERS LOCATED


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.

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

try taking off the bezel that the lighter is in and make sure that it is still connected, if it is it could possibly be a bad lighter assembly. as far as replacing the fuse compartment, its possible but a P.I.T.A..

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a 1999 toyota camry and what could be potential reasons why it doesnt work


A good thing to check to see if it's just a fuse is try your external mirrors to see if they move, they work off the same fuse as the lighter.

If it is a fuse, and if you are in Australia then the fuse box is next to the drivers right knee area, In America, then next to their left knee. There is also a fusible link built into some cigarette lighters, mine has one. When it blew, the auto electrician was able to resolder the link and get me going again until I could buy a new lighter.

Hope this helps.

My back window will not let down and the power lock doesnt work on it. My cigarette lighter wont work. My dome light went out. HOW DO I REPAIR/ REPLACE THESE THINGS


Check your fuses. Look at your lighter element. A dirty or damaged element could cause shorting that blows the fuse. A new element can be purchased for less than $5. Check your owners manual and see if these items are all powered by the same fuse.
