05 honda accord have no power in the cigarette lighter and power outlet


Well... because there can be several things that cause this issue, you want to start with the process of elimitation. Is your car powered on when you try and use the outlet? Most veichels will not allow power to the outlets when powered off.
Observe the outlet and remove any foreign objects from the outlet, there may be a fuse or metal from a broken acessory stuck in the outlet.
Start by pluging something that works into the outlet (like a cell phone charger wit an led to indicate power) locate your veichels fuse box as per instruction of the cars manual. Remove fuse cover and locate the fuse location of the outlet in question, often labeled power or accessory. Observe the ratings of the fuse and be prepared to replace it if need be (it's good to keep common spare fuse for your veichel in your glove,trunk,ect). Remove the fuse and use a fuse tester to test the fuse or look to observe if the fuse is blown, if so replace the fuse, if the led on the charger plugged into the outlet emit's light then you have solved your problem, and if not stop work and call a mechanic or post another question. There are other things you could do but nothing that I would advise without you asking.
good luck and thanks

Power outlet fuse


Check the connections to the outlet first. The 2 outlets have the same fuse. So, if one works then so should the other.

2005 mercedes-benz e320 . lighter outlet cigarrete is mot working and it isnot the fuse,, what should i do?


With the ignition off try prying the tabs closed on the inside of the cig lighter. Sometimes they get spread apart to far when using auxillary chargers. Make sure the ignition is off or you will short to ground and pop the fuse for sure. If that doesn't work and the fuse is good then you'll need to replace the cig lighter as a complete assembly.

My 2006 VW Beetle continuously blows the Accessory fuse utilized for the power port for the cigarette lighter and underneath the center console. The proper fuse was replaced. Only my phone plugged in when...


Hi Troy,

Without seeing the ports of the car and the plug of your charger, it would be difficult to diagnose with any certainty. I do have a suggestion however. Your note suggests that other devices do not cause the fuse to blow when they are used - it is only the charger for the phone. Since the charger works in other cars, it is probably not an overload condition due to a defective charger, but more likely a mismatched set of contacts between the plug and power port in your car when the two are mated. Some cars have slightly different sized power ports that can be either too tight or too loose for some plugs. Too tight ports could be causing parts internal to the charger's plug or car's power port to short together and blow the fuse.

We can get around this be using a different plug. The easiest way is to find a cord set that will plug into your car's power port and provides a simple extension for 1, 2 or 3 outlets. These can be found in auto parts stores and the automotive departments of stores like K-Mart, Sears, etc. Some examples look like these:

Insert the plug into the power port - and check that the fuse does not blow by checking the fuse - not by plugging something into the the outlet on the cord. If the fuse remains good, then it is safe to assume that the problem with your charger and the car's power port has been eliminated, and the car's power is available at each of the outlets of the new cord.

Try plugging the charger into the outlet of the new cord. If all is well, the charger should be working as expected. What we have done is removed the charger / car power port combination from the equation, by providing a different combination to do the same thing - but without the same physical connection that causes the fuse to blow.

You could achieve the same results by changing the charger plug under the right conditions - but many chargers now a days have circuitry inside them that change the car's 12 volts to something different. If you can find the voltage out of the charger and are able to match it with another - it must be the same voltage, polarity, current and phone power connector of course - it should work, too. You must be absolutely sure of the power requirements and your rewiring - if not, stick with the addition of a cord described above.

I hope this helps & good luck!

All power outlets went out. I replaced the fuse in the side panel but, as soon as I plug anything in, I can hear the fuse pop. I have checked all the other fuses andit is the only one that is blown.


You will need a new power outlet / cig lighter socket. The side tabs can get bent, and it will internally short and blow the fuse, whenever something is installed. Visually look inside the socket to see if the 2 side tabs (ground) are bent inward or downward. The center dot at the very bottom is the power, if it touches the sides or the tabs it will blow the fuse. It could also be the appliance you are plugging in, try something different (like a phone charger).

CIGARETTE LIGHTER DOES NOT WORK


Figure out if it is the lighter or the outlet itself. Push the lighter down, if it stays down, but doesn't get hot and pop back out it is in the outlet,if it doesn't stay down it's the lighter~ double check this by plugging something else like a cell phone charger into it.If you have no juice~ Look for a burnt out fuse( easy cheap fix), if you can't find one you should replace the outlet.

I had my GPS plugged in to my data outlet and everything was working fine. I unplugged it and when I plugged it back in nothing. There is no power being received. I tried plugging in my phone charger...


check the fuse that is located inside the charger itself, not under the hood.. remove it and check, once you have replaced the fuse, try charging something else, if it still does not work then you have a bad charger and need it replaced
