Fuse box,Trying to find out what fuse s for the lighter


If you'd like to take the time to look at all the fuses and see which one is blown, that's the 1 needing replaced. Normally a cigarette lighter fuse is a 10 amp ( Red ) fuse.

The cigarette lighter (3) plugs for my 2000 chevy silverado dont work


The info should be in your owners manual.
There should be a 15 or 20amp fuse in the box near the battery for the cig lighter. There may also be one for "power outlet" or accessory outlet.

On my 2006 dodge stratus my cig lighter won't work


Normally this would be in your owners manual.
The power for the outlets may be on the same circuit with the horn.
On some models there is an accessory relay that handles the outlets.
There should be a 20amp fuse in the box in the engine compartment that feeds the circuit. You may have to check all of the 20amp fuses to find it.

I pluged in a small car vac in the power outlet , after ten minutes it blew. Owners manual dosen't say there is a fuse for it.


There should be a cig lighter-accessory relay in the box near the battery. It is powered by a 9amp fuse and a 20amp fuse. The 20amp fuse is in the same box with the relay.
These fuses and relay power the front and rear outlets.

Cannot locate where the fuse is that controls my cigarette lighter in front console and the passenger back seat. The lighter in the very back of my vehicle works. I want to replace the fuse. My lighter...


Hi, that fuse is in the box under the hood. See pic below. I think it's fuse 32. Fuse 45 also powers those outlets but also power a lot of other circuits. The fuse for the outlet in the very back of the car is on the interior fuse panel, #14. All of this information is in your owners manual.

Cigarette lighter quit working - is there a fuse that I can check.


I suggtes check the position CIG LTR for Cigarette Lighter. The underhood fuse block in the engine compartment on the driver's side of the vehicle near the battery. Lift the cover for access to the fuse/relay block.

To remove fuses, hold the end of the fuse between your thumb and index finger and pull straight out.

Also, in this link could donwnload the Owner's Manual for the 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate and commene this answer).

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.

2003 Jetta VR6 fuse question


you will have to look in your owner's manual or remove the fuse panel cover and it may be labled there, with a position number. you will have to look at the position of the diagram either in the book or on the cover then orientate as you look at the fuse box itself. sometimes they lable the fuses with a number under neath each fuse to give it's location. And yes, I don't see why you can't use a charger for your ipod in the cigarette lighter. it should work just fine, people use that for car chargers for cell phones, and lots of other things. if you don't smoke then you don't need to buy an adapter that has one plug on one end to go into the lighter hole and gives you 2 that you can plug things into it...it's called a two in one adapter.
