Under the left panel beneath the steering wheel is the fuse box. fuse #2 which is the first switch in the middle row is for the cigarette lighter.

Superdong200 and rah4010 have their facts wrong IMO. Or maybe this is how they have it in England.

Here in South Africa, in a S 40 2006 (right hand drive) the second fuse box is in on the passanger side, under the glove compartament. The cigarette lighter fuse is located in the bottom row, third one from the left, it is blue and is a 15 A.
I will be uploading a picture to sustain my claim and to give further advice to would be lookers

SOURCE: My Mazda 3 cigarette lighter socket quit working.

It's under and behind the glovebox.

The black panel has clips like on a gameboy battery compartment, with that removed, you still won't see fuses. There's two skrews near the hinge (on the outside of the glovebox), turn these counterclockwise with your hands. The fusebox will swing down.

The cigar lighter is a blue 15A fuse on the left side closest to the driver's seat.

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter sockets no power

Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

SOURCE: 12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

SOURCE: 2000 volvo s70 cigarette lighter won't work

I don't own a volvo so no. Does the cd changer work ?

If not then that fuse needs to be replaced. as your dealer was kind enough to give you a hint (check the fuses on each side of the #30 fuse). and replace if necessary.

My cigarette lighter socket quit working. I have no idea why. I can't figure out which fuse it is


using a test light check for power and ground for the lighter socket. if this is good then then you know the fuse is good. this indicates that you need to replace the cigarette lighter element. the part that gets hot when you want to light a cigarette.

Good morning need to now what is fuse num 17 in my truck ford explorer xls. as soon is i try to put a fuse it pops


Hello, This 25 Amp fuse(#17) is for your cigarette lighter socket. If you used the socket for something else, you may have bent the terminals inside it. You will need to replace this socket as it is shorting out.

This should not be too expensive. Sometimes the autoparts stores have a display of HELP products for typical repairs and a socket going bad is common.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work.  Tried replacing fuse, but fuse is ok.  How do you remove the front centre dashbaord panel to gain access to cigarette lighter wiring on a 2005 Jeep cherokee ?


before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

1995 camry wagon cigarette lighter not working


start with a test light and check for power at the center of the cigarette lighter socket. If power is good, then check for ground at side of lighter socket.
If no power, run wire from power wire of lighter to power wire of stereo, thus tapping the power directly and bothering to trace out where the open int he circuit may be.
