Question is, is it the outlet not working OR the actual lighter part of your lighter - the knobby thing you pull out that glows red after it popped back out after a couple minutes after you pushed it in. If it's the knobby thing - plug in a power device like a cell phone charger to see if the outlet works - then replace your knobby thing. If it IS the outlet, it has to be 2 things, one an errant fuse somewhere that is responsible for your outlet - labeled or not - OR a short or loose ground not allowing the outlet to get power. Check your outlet to see if it gets power, check your knobby thing, and check ALL your fuses, not just the ones for the lighter - could be another blown that helps out the outlet , like the one for dash illumination or the ones that control your radio or heat/air.

Any kind of charger that i attempt to plug into my cigarett lighter don't charge the devices, does this mean that the fuse has blown and needs replacing? thanks in advance!


The charger should have a light which shows that it has power. Check power at the socket by operating the cigarette lighter. If the lighter heats up you have power at the lighter. If not, locate the fuse box and check the lighter fuse. If the fuse is intact and you have power at the socket the charger is faulty.
Bear in mind chargers also have a fuse in the connector nose. Most unscrew at the nose and the fuse can be removed from the charger.
