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)..

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


hi,

there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

Is there a fuse if there is no power to the computer hookup under dash to enter new key code on a 2000 ford expedition


Usually if your DLC (Data Link Connector) is not communicating you should check for a blown fuse on the cigarette lighter circuit, should be a blue 15amp fuse. Also check for any pennies or other foreign matter in your cig. lighter sockets or unplug your accessory charger that is in there. I see that all the time. I also see some DLC's that just don't communicate due to a wiring problem. But check the simple things first.

Radio and cigarette lighter outlet not working on 2003 matrix


There are 2 fuses that powers the radio, cigar lighter, etc.
They are: the 10 amp "GAUGE" and the 15 amp "CIG".
Look under the dash, on the driver side. The "CIG" fuse is the one that you need to replace.
It is in the middle of the fusebox, bottom row. again, a 15 amp fuse.
Please advise if you need additional information.

Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
