Hi jewel,your lighter has 3 parts,fuse in fuse box,always check this first,if good then second part to check is the lighter itself,if you can,remove and try in another vehicles lighter outlet.If it works then lighter outlet at dash is bad,try another lighter in your outlet.You can buy new parts at Autozone,if you need to remove part from dash,remove fuse,there\'s a clip on other side of lighter at dash,you will have to remove clip to remove lighter part.Cut wire,but leave yourself plenty to tie in new lighter,use blue butt connectors and a crimp tool.

I have a 98 che y cavilar that had a lighter fire in the dash


what are you asking. if its damage then check the wiring for the lighter to see if there is any damage to it. the fuse should have blown to stop this from happening. check the fuse and make sure its the proper amperage. if these are okay then check the lighter socket plug and repair as needed, replace the lighter socket and lighter itself.

Electrical problem Cadillac


If there is no power to the sockets, changing the bulb wont correct the problem. Check all fuses. Check for current to the tailight. Check for ground to the tailight. Repair as nesessary.
Check cigarette lighter filament. It may be faulty. Check inside cigarette lighter socket. It may have a foreign material in it causing the short.

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.

I have Mitsubishi eclipse '98 GS.Cigaret lighter just stopped working. Checked the fused and replaced but it's still doesn't work. I was using a portable compressor to pump some air in my tire. I need it...


so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck
