SOURCE: my fuse panel diagram for my 1998 honda civic dx is missing.

according to this it's 10A and in the first row by the sure to look at the picture for correct placement. Since it's a 10Amp between a 15 and 20 you should be able to spot it right off...

here ya go

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Honda Accord and my daughter was

Accessory fuse is located on the dashboard, facing the left front door frame. To reach it, the door has to be open, and it has a plastic cover colored just like the dashboard. It can be pulled out by hand. The fuses are tight together, so it is hard to pull them out for inspection unless you have a generic fuse pulling tool.

SOURCE: My son's 1997 Honda Accord has an aftermarket

The thing is, whoever hooked up the stereo would know for sure where the connected into in order to get power to the stereo. If they went off somewhere ealse other than what the factory made to be the power for the stereo it would make sense. In the accord for your year the power to the stereo and the cigarette lighter is the same fuse if it was hooked to the same wiring that came with the vehicle. They may have by accident disconnected the lighter and it's just not hooked up at all. You can check the fuse for the cigarette lighter if you would like. that fuse is in the fuse panel located in the engine compartment and will be in the number 18 position and sould be a 15 amp fuse ( see diagram of the layout of fuses below). If that fuse is bad and corrects the problem then they hooked up to another power source when they hooked up the stereo. I hope this helps you and good luck.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Accord: Radio/Cig lighter keeps blowing

Start with a visual inspection of the cigarette lighter. The chromed walls are the negative pole, and the bottom part is the positive (12v) pole. Evidently these two parts should not come in contact with each other, and if they do bend the metal with a fine screw driver. Make sure the vehicle is off, and preferably, with the fuse taken out, because the screwdriver will make a short. Also check that nothing metallic has dropped into the hole of the lighter, such as a screw. If nothing is found, take out the lighter socket and disconnect it. Check if the fuse continues to blow, and if this is the case, you know that the lighter is not the culprit. I left the radio as a second choice because reaching the back of the radio to unplug the harness is difficult, it requires disassembling the center console (Check elsewhere on fixya for the procedure, i think i published it once). Unplug the radio and see if this stops the fuse from blowing. If it stops shorting, then you know its the radio, but if it doesnt, then the wiring harness is shorting somewhere, in which case, i would recommend a mechanic, unless you are really good at disassembling dashboards, and checking for continuity and voltage on electrical circuits.

What fuse is the one for the cigarette lighter/power supply?

The fuses in the engine compartment are not the ones that run the internal electrical circuits. IF you go to autozone website you can make a free account and then put in the year, make and model and then look for the free repair guides.

Will I be able to generate 15amps in my honda cigarette lighter to power tyre air compressor which is rated to work at that?

depends on the fuse rating for that circuit-you should be able to find that information in your owners manual, but if you do not have one,m plugging in the compressor and running it will determine if it is rated to rund that load-the fuse will pop, or it won't. 15 amps is not a large draw, you did not list the year and model but most power ports are 20+ amp rated and older cars (with cigarette lighters) were 30 amp.

Cigarette lighter came off

Test to see if you are getting +12V at the center contact and connect meter to an alternate ground point....perhaps the ground wire fell off?? Otherwise I would see if power lead slipped off rear of lighter connector.
