Changing cigarette lighter for 1986 Pontiac Grand Am

Hi,

my cigarette lighter has not been working for some time. A friend and I were poking at it and it threw sparks. Anyway, I changed out the fuse and its still not working, so I was thinking of replacing the ligher itself.

I bought a part from Kragen which should work, however I am trying to find instructions for changing it out, there's no explicit instructions in the manual. From the looks of it, it looks like I may need to remove the whole center console to replace it, I don't see a way to just pop it out. I *do* have instructions for that in the manual, but that is rather involved and requires removing the negative battery terminal thingie--something I may leave to the expertise of my dad.

Can someone confirm for me that this is the way it should be removed? Through removing the center console?

Thanks!

See if you can look behind it if theres a screw around it or some sort of clip holding it in, maybe it just snaps in and can be snapped out by pushing from behind it

The lighter socket or the element.
Check the element for burn marks and the socket for debris blocking the contacts.

I have the same problem with my 2008 Grand Prix - replaced the batteries in both key fobs - they worked for a few days and quit working. Remote start does not work and both of the cigarette lighter chargers do not work either. I have recieved a "charging system failure" message on the readout screen as well. I have checked with 2 different mechanics and they are not sure what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

This is a very common issue, either the ground at the back of the lighter socket is pulled off, or more likely the socket is defective, they are very easy to change, u can use a generic replacement from any parts store, the factory part will be at least 2X as much..
