Looks strange what you said. Since you pushed the cigarette lighter in,means that made a contact to receive power to heat the element. Since you asked for that and immediately you have lost Radio and Heater,means that either you had somewhere a bad contact and blown the fuse for radio and heater.Now having as you said fuses okay surely is strange. If you can,try to remove the the dash holding the cigarette lighter and see at the back where the wires are and see if you have any bad contact.or some radios have an extra glass fuse see if is any check if is blown. the same also for the heater. Always work with ignition OFF,to avoid any contact .

SOURCE: cig. lighter and 2nd power slot for cord doesn't work,

It should be the fuse. They are located under the hood in the fuse box with the relays. you probably plugged something in that was faulty or needed to much power. the fuse is only a 10. i upped mine to a 20.

SOURCE: 1991 s10 pickup radio and cig. lighter shrts out

You need to replace the lighter socket. Both of my 1988 S10's had the same problem after a few years of using my cell phone battery charger in the lighter plug. I replaced it 10 years ago and it has been fine ever since. Something in the original socket wears out and causes it to short out when something is plugged in. Good luck!

1988 celebrity.pushed the cigarette lighter in and the radio quit. Just motor noise coming from speakers. Put new fuse in and still the same. Did I kill the radio. How do I remedy it.


You replaced the cig lighter fuse ?
That should have fixed the radio problem if the lighter circuit has power now. Keep in mind when you kill the radio memory it resets to AM and not on any pre-set station. Just like when you disconnect the battery cable.
The radio gets memory power from the cig lighter circuit and regular power from the radio circuit thru the key switch.

Why did my radio and my cig. lighter stopped working?


I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard "All fuses are OK" or "I already checked the fuse" or "I know it's not the fuse"....I'd be a rich man!

When cigarette lighters quit working, 99% of the time the fuse is blown because someting got plugged into it like a defective phone charger. The other 1% of the time, it is because the lighter element is burned out or somebody essed with the wires to the cigarette lighter trying to install some kind of aftermarket equipment.

Humor me and check Fuse #9 (20 Amp) in the passenger side fuse and relay box.

My 1990 Olds Cutlass Calais is missing the fuse box cover and therefore has no diagram for fuse placement. Is one available online? Copy I can print or just refer to in order to replace correct fuses?


I have always had a place in my heart for the Olds Cutlass. I own a '90 Olds Cutlass Calais--WITH the fuse box COVER. I went out to the car and removed the cover and have it next to me so that I can type the EXACT fuse order as they appear on the inside cover.There are 2 col. When I've finished the l/h side, I'll make a line to indicate the start of the r/h side. I will also put the Circuit on the left & fuse on the right. If you are ready, HERE WE GO:

Radio and cigarette lighter outlet not working on 2003 matrix


There are 2 fuses that powers the radio, cigar lighter, etc.
They are: the 10 amp "GAUGE" and the 15 amp "CIG".
Look under the dash, on the driver side. The "CIG" fuse is the one that you need to replace.
It is in the middle of the fusebox, bottom row. again, a 15 amp fuse.
Please advise if you need additional information.

Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
