SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter fuse location

The cigarette fuse is located in the battery junction box under the hood, it is fuse # 10 and is a 20A fuse, open the hood and find the box it is on the passenger side towards the back of the compartment, it is 10th in line on the top row, also you can check these fuses without removing them through the clear plastic top so that should make things a little easier too, hope this helps

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter on a 1964 ford fairlane?

There's only one fuse block on the old cars, in the instrument panel on the driver's side. If the fuses are not labeled, use a test light to check every fuse. Only takes 5 minutes.
These are the old style fuses, with a round cylindrical clear glass in the middle? They push into metal clips on each end of the fuse?

Then ground a test light to a good ground under the dash- a bolt, screw, or metal. Now turn the key to ON. Every fuse should now be powered. Touch one end of the fuse or the metal clips with the test light-it should light up. If it doesn't, recheck the ground clip of tester-have to have a good ground. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse. A bad or blown fuse will only light the tester on one end of the fuse. Power comes in on one side of the fuse terminal, and if the fuse is good, power will also be on both ends or terminals of the fuse.
A few fuses are hot at all times- the horn, tail lights, and brake lights for example. With key on, all fuses are hot-should have power on them. Modern fuses can be tested this way as well-all modern fuses have a test port on each end of the top of the fuse-this port is open to the metal strip inside the fuse. If power is on both ends of the fuse at the test ports, that fuse is good-you don't have to take it out to inspect-use a test light and check for blown fuses this way.

To test a cig. lighter: Ground the test light lead. Pull out the lighter. Use the needle probe of tester and carefully touch the center element inside the lighter base-the heating element-don't let the probe touch the sides of the case when touching the heating element-you may blow the fuse. If the lighter is good, with key on, the element should have power-will light up the tester. If the base part is good, has power, then maybe the pull out piece that lights cigarettes is bad. Or the lighter case is not grounded good. Some are case grounded to the metal dash, but some may have a ground wire on the back side of the base, behind the dash-check for that. The power wire to the lighter attaches at the center of the lighter base. If there is a ground wire, it will be attached on the side of the base, again this is behind the dash.

Toyota Emina 1995. There is no power in the cigarette lighter socket. Have checked the specific fuse and all others inside and in the engine compartment. I have tapped all the relays. Everything else...

I would check the two wires running from the rear of the lighter and see if they are connected at both needs. If you have a DC tester touch both screws at the lighters rear and if they light you have juice.
If you have juice take a piece of emery cloth and clean the contacts inside the cigarette lighter socket.
Good luck.

Pull the ECM fuse out then put it back that will reset the computer.You can also take the ground cable off the battery for 30 seconds to reset the computer.If your engine still idles high afterwards then take the idle air control valve off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and a wire brush.
