Check for power at fuse. If power is there a break in the wire going to cig lighter is broken. If no power than there is a blown fusible link by battery. Check fuses under hood also

SOURCE: cigarette lighter

I had the same problem, and was able to replace the fuse quite easily. I'm not sure which fuse exactly is the correct one, but I DO know the fuse is in the engine not in the interior of the car. You should be able to find exactly which fuse on the internet.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter does not work

This is Fuse 32 under the hood in the fuse box. I had a problem with this fuse as well. I don't smoke so didn't care when I first realized my lighter didn't work, but my check engine light came on and when I took it to get the engine code read, the part they connect to under the dash (ODBII) would not give them a code. I left the store not knowing why my check engine light was on and annoyed there was another problem to fix. After a few hours of troubleshooting with my Dad, we figured out the same fuse that controls the lighters is the same one that powers the OBDII system, and Onstar as well. I hope that info helps someone else.

I dropped a Penny in cigarette lighter on my 2001 acura rl now the radio doesn't work and fuses appear fine


Some radio power sources also tie into the cigarette lighter and power adapters. You mentioned fuses appear ok, if you dont have a test light to test both sides of the fuses try swapping the fuses around from another location and see if that changes anything.. Oh and if the penny is still in the lighter try a ball of tape of the end of a pencil to pull it out.. Look for a fuse listed aux. power or radio/cig lighter. Most likely the fuse is inside the car not under the hood..(usually)..

My son's 1997 Honda Accord has an aftermarket stereo that works but his cigarette lighter doesn't. Could it be a fuse?


The thing is, whoever hooked up the stereo would know for sure where the connected into in order to get power to the stereo. If they went off somewhere ealse other than what the factory made to be the power for the stereo it would make sense. In the accord for your year the power to the stereo and the cigarette lighter is the same fuse if it was hooked to the same wiring that came with the vehicle. They may have by accident disconnected the lighter and it's just not hooked up at all. You can check the fuse for the cigarette lighter if you would like. that fuse is in the fuse panel located in the engine compartment and will be in the number 18 position and sould be a 15 amp fuse ( see diagram of the layout of fuses below). If that fuse is bad and corrects the problem then they hooked up to another power source when they hooked up the stereo. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Cigarette lighter in front and in back does not work in my 2000 v 70 volvo i just bought, could that be a fuse?


Definately sounds like a fuse if 2 locations are not working. Cigarette lighters are 2 wires to hook up so to have a faulty port is highly unlikely. Check your owners manual for the fuse location. It will probably not be under the hood in that fuse box but under the steering wheel up and under the dash. No big deal though.

Cigarette lighter won't charge


IF YOU HAVE A TEST LIGHT, TEST center contact INSIDE THE LIGHTER OUTLET IF IT SHOWS POWER YOUR PROBLEM IS THE GROUND. And The Ground is INCORPERATED into A Bundle Located @ or around Electrical Center= Fuse / Relay BOX under hood. Sounds like a (BODY GROUND) Problem. Also Be Sure it is NOT a KEY ON Curciut. I Have a Carivan that the Cig. Lighters Work ONLY with KEY ON. Hope this is Of Help to you ! .

The cigarett lighter outlets do not work.


Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.

I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.

While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.

If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.

Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.

If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.

If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.

Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.

Good luck

1999 porshce 911 cigarette lighter


If the fuse is fine, check the hot wire leading to the lighter assembly to make sure you're getting power. If no, you've got a short in the wire from your fuse panel to lighter. If you are getting power to the lighter, take your test light and test the contacts on the inside of the lighter. If no power there, then replace lighter assembly. If you are getting power inside your lighter, it works fine, but the accessory you are plugging into it may be defective.
