Pull the socket and sick a test light in the harness. If it lights up the socket is bad. Buy a universal from the part store and save $20

SOURCE: cigar lighter problem on 2005 Ford Explorer

even though the fuse is good, change it anyway and look for other bad fuses. it is possible that someone rewired and put wired them somewhere else. i just saw that yesterday. also, check to make sure a wire did not fall off or get broken/fried. if both power points are not working they are connected to the same power and ground points, whereby creating a circle/circuit. also check to see if one of the units is bad. if it take two to complete the circuit/circle and one unit is bad, maybe the circle/circuit is broken. you can test the units with two jumper wires and your battery/a jump box. these units are only + and -.

SOURCE: cigar lighter is not working ?

The fuses are metal-bladed, plastic housing devices and they are sometimes difficult to remove. Many cars have a fuse puller inside the fuse box but any auto parts store will have them and they are included with fuse assortments they sell.
Once you are roaming around getting fuses and puller, consider buying a low-cost digital multimeter too. The parts stores have them or, if you are in the US, Radio Shack will too and don't spend more than $20 US at either, you don't need more meter than that for household use. If you are in the US, check the white pages for your area for Harbor Freight. If you have one, you can buy a meter there for <$10.
With meter, and fuse removed, set the meter to the resistance scale (Ohms) and the lowest setting, generally 200. Check across the metal blades of the fuse and if the meter display shows something close to zero (typically they will show test lead resistance of .2-.6 on the display if the two leads are held together), the fuse is OK. If the display just blinks at you as it does with nothing connected to the meter leads, the fuse is open (blown). 
The fuses are color coded but make sure that the value of the fuse (from your newly purchased handy assortment) is the same as your old one unless it is something under 10 Amps. If it is, use a 10 amp fuse as the replacement.
And remember, smoking kills - (us).

SOURCE: The cigar lighter isn't working how do I fix this problem

This is a fuse problem, check the fuse, it will either be marked lighter or power point, the fuse box is to the left of the steering column it has a plastic cover over it, inside the cover the fuses will be marked on a diagram. If the fuse blows again the cigar lighter is shorted, you will have to replace it, most times the lighter element is the problem and not the well it fits into.

I think there should be another fuse box located inside the vehicle possibly under the dash panel on the Nearside.

2014 Nissan Sentra cigarette lighter not charging. How do i check or Fix problem?


Does your cigar lighter work? If so maybe something wrong with your charger?

My wiring database won't have anything on a vehicle this new. So I can't track the cigar lighter wiring circuit. Check your fuse box lid, see if it has a label for which fuse does what, then check the cigar fuse. I looked at your owners manual, not any help. Hopefully your fuse box is labeled.

You could go to your local dealer ship, talk to the service department, see if they will give you a print-out of your fuse box, so you will know which fuse does what.

Cigar lighter not working fuses checked in glove box what next


sometimes those things get very very hot and cause the wires in the back to lose their solder connections, thus not working at all. simple fix but can be a pain in the backside to get to cuz you usually have to take the entire dash. That's the reason so many people just say "forget it"

BMW x3 2005 electric windows full down and will not go up. Imobiliser also not working. Car starts ok and central locking also ok.


Hi Savageh. I would check the fuses in the glove box. You should have a fuse guide that lists which fuses are which. My diagram says fuse 57 is for your model year x3.
