I have a 2006 dodge ram 1500. I was driving and put my phone charger in the cigarette lighter to charge my phone and when I did my radio stopped working. When I got home I checked all fuses under hood...


there will be a fuse for the cigarette lighter socket probably in the accessories section fuse and should be about 20-25 amps. Check out the socket for a short or check the way you put the adaptor in the socket as a bit of misalignment will short out the centre point which is the live wire.

2000 year honda civic cigarette lighter not working


check the power in the lighter socket or the charger which is a small transformer has not failed . Try it in another car . If it works there then I would suspect a fuse for the lighter if there is no power there.. Make sure that the adaptor plug is tight as the 2 bars on the side are the earth for the adaptor and if not tight then there may be no earth . Use a flat bladed screw driver and bend the bars out a bit to increase tension in the socket.

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.

Does Volvo cigarette ligher socket accept standard chargers?


Check the fuse in the car charger, and try in another car. The manual with should show where the fuse location. (because it worked befor you charged it,sounds like the car cord fuse is blown or the cord is defected)

Same as above... cant pop hood with a dead battery


If you open the fuse box in driver's compartment by your left leg, there is a red plug that you can pull that will expose a positive lead.

Put a charger on the lead and ground the other side of the charger to the frame and it will provide power to use the hood latch.

I have seen other people write about using the car charger that fits into the cigarette lighter but I have no personal knowledge. I hope that is helpful.

There is also an emergency release under one of the wheel wells but I never attempted to look for it.

Cigarette lighter sockets no power


Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.
