Cigarette Lighter Fuse???

The outlet on the back of the console works fine. The one located in the ash tray doesn't. I can only find one 30 amp fuse that appears related. The fuse is good. If I remove it, the back outlet stops working. Where is the fuse for the ash tray outlet located? Thanks.

    The fuse box actually has three holes for the two pronged fuse. By moving the fuse to the other two holes, I now have a functioning outlet. From what I've read, the choice in locations for the fuse has something to do with the outlet turning itself off after the car has been turned off for 10 minutes. For whatever reason, it fixed my non working outlet.

I had exactly same problem. I could not use my GPS or charge my cell phone.
In front of the driver sit, there are actually 2 fuse boxes. You probably found the first one. A second one is located above well hidden. Once you find it, you'll find the fuse you are looking for.

If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.

Have you checked for voltage at the lighter? have you checked the ground wire. Look for broken or frayed wires.

Were are the fuses for ash tyay


Fuse #9 feeds the power outlet and fuse #18 feeds the lighter outlet. They are both located in the fuse box in the trunk, next to the battery. If you open the trunk and lift the floor up you'll see them hiding under there. The numbers should be called out on the cover for the fuse box.

Failed emission obd not working on 1996 buick roadmaster


Common problem. You most likely have a blown fuse on your cigarette lighter circuit. These get shorted out all the time due to faulty phone chargers, GPS units, coins in ash tray getting stuck in the socket, etc...

This same circuit is what powers pin 16 of your data link connector(an OBD scanner will not work without it).

The Fuse you need to check is the CIG/DLC fuse, which is Fuse #28 (20 Amp) in your instrument panel fuse block. The instrument panel fuse block is located on the driver's side of the instrument panel.

Be sure to check your cigarette lighter for some of the things mentioned above, and take corrective action, or you will only blow another fuse.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak


Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

Hello and thank you. There is no power coming from the Cigarette Lighter (power Outlet as listed in the manual) of my 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring. I have searched both fuse boxes of the vehicle and can not...


Fuse is located under the spare tire well and is in the fuse panel and is an 20 amp fuse that is slightly misaligned on the middle row of the box. This will fix cigarette lighter in ash tray in lower middle cluster of radio and a/c.

Which is the cigarette lighter fuse for a 98 jetta


It's a 15 amp (blue) fuze located above the relays on the fuse box. You need to remove the plastic fuse housing under the dash (two screws) and unclip the fuse tray and drop it down. The clips are white and are on the sides of the fuse tray, they just snap and swing back. Once you drop the fuse tray you will see several fuses above the relays. The blue one goes to the cigarette lighter. What a pain.

Cigarette lighter stopped working


I had the same problem on my '97. I ended up taking out the lighter when I was replacing the LCD on the radio, only to find that somehow it had become disconnected. Not sure how it happened but it might be worth checking out to see if it wiggled loose. To get to the lighter: 1) Prior up the cover by the shifter (the one that also goes back to the seat heater). It is connected with snaps so pry slowly. 2) Once the panel is removed you will see screws that are holding in the ash tray/cig lighter. Unscrew those and the whole lighter/ash tray can be pulled out. It is also held in by snaps on the top.
