The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

Driving to work this morning I plugged my cell phone charger into the cig lighter socket and lost power to the radio and lighter socket as well as the side mirror adjustment - all are dead.


The radio and lighter are on the same fuse. You'll have to find the fuse. On most cars the fuse box is under the dash to the left of the driver.

Where can I find the fuse for a cigarette lighter on the Toyota corolla 2005


This one's the fusebox in the interior of the car; usually below the steering wheel in a panel with a thumbscrew that you just give a quarter-turn, then catch it as it opens; inside are some fuses, which tend to be obvious when they are blown. There's a little legend that tends to be well-lit too, indicating which fuses were for the ligher/'auxillary 12v power' socket. Don't let a failed lighter bust on you; a flaming car is much more expensive than tossing/replacing the bad part or plugging something else in.

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.

My lighter won't work and this means my cell phone


If the lighter won't work, your cell phone charger might not either. It is possibly the fuse or it has burned or shorted out. The fuse panel is under the dash on either side of the car. Look at the diagram on the cover and replace the fuse with exact number.

Hi, I have 96 mazda miata, it seems cigarette lighter not working, checked the fuse compartment under the dash board and fuse was good. what can i do next? please, thanks.


The lighter itself could have gone bad. The actual cigarette lighter part go bad if they are used frequently. The socket part are less likely to bad but they do on occasion. If you have a car charger for your cell phone or something of that nature you can find out if its the receptical or the lighter itself.

The Instrument panel lights no longer work. When I started it at night it was fine for a minute. When I plugged in my cell phone charger in the AUX lighter spot, there was a noise and the instrument panel...


Sounds to me like your cell charger is shorted so the fuse that sends power to the lighter socket blew and the dash lights are on the same circuit. Check all the fuses to make sure the tiny piece of wire between the two contacts is still intact and replace any bad ones with the SAME SIZE and AMP RATING fuse. Then, hope for the best and throw away the cell phone charger if all is well in the car.

2001 Hyundai cigarette lighter replacement needed


Depending on where the lighter socket is, they usually just screw into a shell behind. Put your finger in the socket and turn the socket clock wise after you have place the the shell ion the bak of it. Ashtraay or dash, The back part is there uness it's on the floor. You will have to do some disassembly to intall a new one so why not just put yours back together. Nothing is broken, just came apart. Good luck If need be , go look at one at a parts store so you know what I'm talking about and understand better your objective.

Cigarette lighter won't work


The front lighter is powered by fuse 24 in the interior fuse panel and the console power points are fuse 7 and 9 in the battery junction box under hood.
If you have a 12V test lamp you can check the socket for power and check the wire to the socket.The socket may be bad.

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.
