Cigarette lighter not wired

I'm troubleshooting why my cigarette lighter and auxiliary power outlet in my '06 Silverado don't work. The fuse is good, so I started checking the wiring. The harness right on the lighters is not connected to anything, but I didn't see anything it could connect to. Where is a likely spot the original harness ended up? If I have to replace it, where does the harness run to from the cigarrette lighters?

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. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter doesn't work

before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

'06 cadillac dts- no power @ cigarette lighter & center console 12V outlet


I know in my 06 CTS I had the same problem with the cigarette lighter. It came unclasped. Simply Take the complete part out (the piece with the ashtray and the cigarette lighter together and there is a plug there, make sure it is plugged in. They easily come unplugged because of the constant opening and closing of the component itself. I hope this helps on the DTS model.

Is there an adapter that can be used on a car cigarette lighter for plugging in appliances?


Your best bet is to check on eBay for an adapter - the Asians make all sorts of stuff for cars now & i'm sure there is an adapter out there suited for your purposes. P.S. It may sound silly but are you sure you are using the actual cigarette lighter socket & Not a power outlet socket that many cars are now fitted with as standard?, my phone charger fits the cigarette socket but not the power outlet?, you never know?

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

Cig lighter on my Pajero io isnt working yet all fuses are is there another location I should look Mike


  • First thing to do is get an multi-meter and set it to DC Volts and see if you have continuity.
  • You should have a fuse box inside the cabin of the vehicle somewhere. Look for this and check those fuses as well.
  • The fact that you have more than one cigarette lighter says you have a cigarette lighter and also have an Auxiliary output. The auxiliary will have more Amps output than the regular cigarette lighter will.
  • If the fuses all check out the trace the wires back with said multi-meter to see where the problem with the wiring is. I have seen the bottoms go out on them and a simple replacement fixes the problem. That's why the continuity check, trace where the power feed is failing and repair it. That's really what this will come down to. Bad socket, bad wiring, blown fuse or you have an issue with the adapter you are trying to use. Keep in mind that the actual cigarette lighter and auxiliary power output will have separate fuses because they are meant to do separate things.

  • If you have any questions then leave them here for me.

  • Hope this helps.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak


Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.
