02 accent ciggarette lighter wont work

I have a 02 Hyundai Accent , and the cigarette lighter wont work. I dont think its a fuse, as i went through all of them, under the dash and in the engine compartment, and they were all fine. Any clue as to what the problem could be? Also, if i need to replace it... how do i even get it out? I've taken the cup holder and plastic molding from around the shifter off, but the outlet is surrounded by plastic from the whole dash. Would i have to take everything apart? Thank you.

They hyundai service manual says the following.

(1) After removing the ashtray remove the facia panel mounting screws
(2) Then disconnect the connector from cigarette lighter
(3) Disconnect thermal fuse case from socket end
(4) Remove the ring nut and separate cigarette lighter socket from the thermal protector.

I hope this helps. I have never had to replace one (yet) so I can't give exact directions. Even if the fuse looks good you may want to replace it and see if that fixes it first. Sometimes they have miniscule hairline cracks that are hard to see. Hope this helps

How to change cigarette lighter in 2012 accent


If your cigarette lighter is not working, be sure to check the fuse. other wise, replaceing the lighter is reasonably easy, if you can get to it. all you have to do is unscrew the housing from the inner section, remove the old lighter and replace with a new one. most wireing is a simple plug in. If you are unsure how to access the lighter, a haines or chiltons manuels for your model should be able to show you how to access it.

Hyundai elantra, cigarette lighter had power up to connector plug but lighter not working.


Two very likely problems. Most likely, cigarette lighter element is "dead". Try one out of another car, since almost every one is the same. Second option is the ground wire, which would complete the circuit to make the lighter work. You need to ground the socket shell, and see if that fixes the problem.

Need replacement cigarette lighter


You need to get at the back of the socket (female part) to unthread the nut that holds it in. These are sold at any auto parts store, and are kind of common. Replace the socket and element both.
