Hi there
If it was the front dash mounted lighter socket you used, the correct fuse is the 15A CIG & RADIO fuse (at the end of the second row) of the dash fusebox. If replacing the fuse hasn't fixed it, you may need to look closer at the wiring from the fusebox as it's likely the wiring has gone open circuit.
Take the fuse out and check for voltage at the terminals in the fusebox with the ingition key turned to the ACC position. One terminal or the other will have 12V on it. If no voltage on either you have a fusebox to ignition key wiring problem. Check for voltage on the ACC pin of the ignition switch, with the key turned to the ACC position. That's pin 3, a blue wire, of the 8 pin ignition switch connector. If still no volatge the switch is likely faulty. the voltage into the switch must be there as it also feeds the ECU and IGN systems, so the car wouldn't run at all if it wasn't.

There is another possibility. If you have an alarm system, immobilizer or turbo timer (assuming the GTT model) these devices could be interrupting the power lines and be the culprit devices.

I assume it wasn't the rear hatch area lighter socket you used, because the fuse for that doesn't power the radio or clock. The fuse for that socket is the 15A ACCESSORY fuse in the passenger side footwell fuse panel.

These cars have two fuse boxes, one under the hood, and another under a panel on the right of the steering wheel (assuming you drive on the left). Look in this other fusebox for a blown fuse. Should be easy enough to find.

good luck. Dabade.

Hi Bose

Sounds like you still have not found the appropriate fuse.

Recheck your manual for correct fuse location.

Good Luck

John.

2006 jetta, i have a 20amp fuse that blows that is not labeled? it is the only one not labeled in the owners manual. how do i figure out what it is for? thanks!


Check if there is something plugged into a power socket or cigar lighter. if so remove it and se if the fuse stops blowing. If all the sockets seem fine, then plug something you know that works into one and if it does not work, then the fuse is for the cigar lighter/12v socket.
Good luck

Cigarette lighter not working


Have you tried plugging something like a phone charger into the lighter socket to make sure there is power there to start with ?

If there is power then either the cigar lighter element is shot or there is a bad joint which is breaking down when the cigar lighter load is applied

I have Mitsubishi eclipse '98 GS.Cigaret lighter just stopped working. Checked the fused and replaced but it's still doesn't work. I was using a portable compressor to pump some air in my tire. I need it...


so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck
