Front Power Outlet/Cigarette Lighter Chevrolet 2005 Venture

The front power outlet does not work. So, I checked and replaced the 20A fuse but the moment I plug the fuse, the fuse ''breaks''/blows.

I am thinking that there is a grounded wire somewhere... any suggestions where/how to check?

I would check directly behind the outlet first, it sounds like the movement over the years may have caused the pos, and neg wires to un sheath, and touch. Then, if possible, trace back from there to power source, shouldn't be too awful to locate. Hope all goes well.

if the fuse is good and there is no relay then either you have a loose ground/positve wire or the socket is bad. you can easily purchase a after market socket from Napa or Oreillys for a few dollars of the problem is not a loose wire or bad fuse. good luck please rate this solution...thanks

SOURCE: Fuse panel diagram

Can't remember the number off hand, for some reason 43 keeps popping into my head but this could be really far off, but it is on the top row kind of in the middle in the fuse panel on the side of the dash that is visible with the drivers door open. You should be able to spot it if it is blown. I'll look when I go out to my car and hoepfully I remember to update this answer.

SOURCE: power outlet (cigarette lighter) fuse blown. where

on a 1998 the fuse block is located behind a dust shield under the steering column. two plastic screws hold a cover plate up. simply turn these a 1/4 turn and the cover should fall out and there is your fuse block for the inside. also one on the drivers side under the hood behind battery. these are mainly buss fuses and relays. good luck hope this helps.

Cigarette lighter quit working - is there a fuse that I can check.


I suggtes check the position CIG LTR for Cigarette Lighter. The underhood fuse block in the engine compartment on the driver's side of the vehicle near the battery. Lift the cover for access to the fuse/relay block.

To remove fuses, hold the end of the fuse between your thumb and index finger and pull straight out.

Do I need to replace the front power outlet on 2002 Lexus RX300?


I assume you are talking about the cigarette lighters?

These are both normally on the same circuit. It sounds like you have a loose wire on the front lighter. You would have to remove the assembly to check it.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

Aux. Power Outlet


The two outlets are on two different fuses. The one in the front of the console I believe is labeled C/LTR and the fuse for the other is labeled AUX PWR. They are both located in the fuse/junction block in the right side door opening.

I would check them both as I may have stated the labels wrong.

Good Luck
