I have replaced the #17 fuse (20 amp) numerous times and the cig. lighter twice


Try disconnecting the cigar lighter altogether to see if the fuse continues to blow. If it keeps blowing, you have a short somewhere in the wiring, if not the lighter is causing the problems.

Toyota Corolla seca1998 radio/cig not working, replaced fuse for cig and it has worked but for no more than a minute or 2, keeps blowing. Assuming it's something to do with a shortage between the cig fuse...


hi there. ok what I advise is to simply disconnect the cig lighter, then replace fuse and turn on stereo. this will tell you which is causing the problem. if fuse blows its the stereo if fuse is good then its the cig lighter. you may have had a child etc put coins in the slot thinking it a slot machine...ive been there before but sadly it was only pennies....they rattle around in the stereo and hit electrical parts. also look into the cig lighter hole and see if a coin or similar stuck down there bridging the sides with the bottom... simply use your finger to check this and not a screwdriver to short it again.

hope this helps you.

Number 3 fuse blows,why??


what ever operates off fuse # 3 is shorting out, you will need to find out what runs off this fuse and then find which system in that fuse is causing the short, for example, lets say that #3 fuse operates the radio, cig lighter and the rear defroster, you would disconnect the radio and then install a fuse, if fuse blows then you know its not the radio thats causing it so then you unhook the cig lighter and see if the fuse still blow if it does then you know its not the lighter, and so on until you find the system thats causing it. good day.

The dome light in my 2000 kia sephia will not work nor will the lights on my radio. Where is the fuse to control these and are they both on the same fuse?


most the time the cigerette lighter fuse has blwon. that fuse goes for radio and probably int. light.some fuses feed other fuses so cig lighter fuse does not have a label that says radio. check all the fuses anytime you check for elect. problems

1997 geo metro radio and cigerette lighter workin


The fuse in question is the "ACC" fuse and it is the 15A fuse that is third or fourth from the end of the fuse box that faces the side of the car (and it is under the dash behind the hood release). I've just had to replace mine several times in a row; you might want to check for a short.
