Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
My GF has a Pontiac Grand Am that the cigarette lighter will not power her FM tuner or charge her IPod. I have went through and checked all of the fuses and they are all intact. I took a voltage tester and checked the power coming to the cigarette lighter. With the key off and car not running it is getting 12 volts. With the key on and the car running it is getting 14 volts. I wasn't sure if this was what it was supposed to be so I compared it to the cigarette ligher and power point in my Ford pickup (that will power and charge the FM tuner and IPod) and it had the same exact voltages. Does anyone know why she could possibly be getting the proper voltages but nothing she plugs in to the cigarette lighter will power on or charge?
This is a very common issue, either the ground at the back of the lighter socket is pulled off, or more likely the socket is defective, they are very easy to change, u can use a generic replacement from any parts store, the factory part will be at least 2X as much..
