Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

I am installing an XM radio in a friend's 2005 F-150 and he has blown fuses in the cigarette lighter and 12v outlet. Of course the owner's manual isn't in the vehicle so I don't know which fuses to replace, and don't want to look at all of them

Well if you have a test light hook the to ground turn the key on and check teh fuses that way saves a little time versus pulling them all out.

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.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.

Cigarette lighter in 96 Nissan Pathfinder does not work


If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.

Radio and cigarette lighter do not get power


The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.

After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.
