Cigarette lighter in car


The lighter in a Chevy Lumina can get lost easily if you routinely pull it from the socket to plug in electronic devices like GPS systems, cell phone chargers and laptops. If so, you need to replace it.

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

My cigarette lighter do not work


Just go buy a BIC LIGHTER, lol. Just kiddin. If it's the lighter on your CAR, then see if there's a fuse in the fuse box, usually located under the dashboard on the driver's side, and see if you can find a fuse that's burnt out. If that doesn't solve the problem, or you can't find the fuses or don't feel comfortable taking them out and putting them back in, you'll have to take the car to a mechanic who knows how to do that, and also knows how to replace the lighter if that becomes necessary.

My son stuck a screwdriver in the cigarette lighter of my 2004 chevy blazer I opened the fuze box interior one the 15A fuze was fried Replaced it but still the lighter doesn 39 t work Checked th


I don't believe that the lighter has a relay in it's circuit. My best guess is that the lighter element shorted out, causing the fuse to blow. The lighter part that you pull out of the socket can be disassembled by unscrewing the knob. The element (part that glows red) can be replaced. Any auto parts store should have one.
Best regards, --W/D--

Neither lighter outlet works on my 01 allero, just bought it used so don't know if and when they did work! Help..need to charge stuff!!


You have options there. First use a test light and probe the center terminal of the outlet. If it has power, check the ground on the socket. If no power, check the fuse. (if you have no diagram, probe all of them and replace any that don't have power at both ends with the key on, and replace any that are blown. the one you are looking for is usually 20 or 25 amp). Your other option is to create a new circuit. To do that, find an open fuse port that only has power with the key on. attach a wire (close to 14 gauge is best) to a spade connector and plug it into the fuse connection that has power. Run that wire to the connector at the rear of the accessory port (lighter housing center post). If you do that, make sure you install an accessory fuse holder in that wire that is rated at 25 amps. I use that method to install additional ports so you don't have to plug in one of those "octopus outlets" in a working power outlet. Only difference is that I also install a new lighter housing into the dash. That requires a new hole in the dash or console and a ground wire to the outside of the housing.

My cigarette lighter doesn't work but my fuse is good and the switch is hooked up, what could be the problem?


Could be the lighter part itself that is no good, you can buy replacements at the auto parts store very cheaply. You might want to check the wires to the lighter and make sure they are tight and that there is no corrosion on the inside of the socket. You can also buy replacement sockets at the parts store. Most times there is enough corrosion that the grounds don't make contact good.

We just recently bought a 1990 GMC Jimmy S15, the lighter doesn't work. We found the fuse box but it doesn't have a diagram for the fuses. Do you have a diagram of the 1990 GMC Jimmy fuse box?


YOU CAN PULL EVERY FUES WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS WONT TAKE BUT 5MINS OR SO YOU MIGHT FIND OTHER ONES BLOWN..SOMETIMES IF ALL FUES ARE GOOD THE LIGHTER SOCKET GOES BAD OR THE LIGHTER GOES BAD

Just had both o2 sensors replaced and now the truck won't shift from 2nd to 3rd gear. Evidently it had been slipping a bit before but now it won't shift into 3rd at all. The tranny is an E4OD......


O2 Sensors --- not related to shifting

New transmissions --- are only new once
When installed on the assy line

Has to be rebuilt if necessary

PO 147 ---O2 Sensor Heater (Bank 1 Sensor 3) don't have one of those
PO714 -- Trans Temp Sensor -heat for the slipping
PO 471 --- Exhaust Pressure Sensor -don't have that either

Need a new guy
Not very professional were they

Ciggarette lighter stops working when headlights turned on


Sounds like maybey someone has replaced the lighter before, and has somehow tied the ground wire into the headlight switch. Short of going through the wiring harness between the lighter and switch, I would just say run a new ground wire and get a fuse tap for the power. This will completely isolate the lighter from the rest of the electrical system. Let me know if this helps :)
