Have you checked the fuse for them? The location should be in your owner's manual.

    Open the drivers door, fuse panel should be on the lower dash to the left of the steering column, (might have to look underneath the dash), the cover should have a diagram of which fuse is which. It's probably a 20A yellow fuse. On a 2004 Grand Cherokee it's fuse #9, but check the diagram.

Sounds like a bad connection not the computer. Did you use a voltage meter to test connections?

2001 Cherokee Sport. Why doesn't the cigar lighter work?


My info shows a separate power outlet, will that work for your charger?

At the cigar lighter, red wire is voltage and black wire is ground. You have to have both or it won't work.

Is there an adapter that can be used on a car cigarette lighter for plugging in appliances?


Your best bet is to check on eBay for an adapter - the Asians make all sorts of stuff for cars now & i'm sure there is an adapter out there suited for your purposes. P.S. It may sound silly but are you sure you are using the actual cigarette lighter socket & Not a power outlet socket that many cars are now fitted with as standard?, my phone charger fits the cigarette socket but not the power outlet?, you never know?

I have a 1989 Jeep Cherokee. After powering a small inverter from the cigarett lighter outlet to power a laptop I now have no power to the turn signal relays, wipers, radio, hot/cool blower motor, and...


sounds like you may have melted the ignition switch and it is just partly working. (i have done this myself before) it is located on the lower part of the steering column you maybe able to use a mirror and a flash light to see if it is melted. ( mine was, but the jeep still started) the switch will have a few wires running to it also a metal rod that comes down the column from the key switch. (please rate this if it help Thank you)

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.

The cigarett lighter outlets do not work.


Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.

I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.

While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.

If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.

Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.

If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.

If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.

Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.

Good luck

Both of my front Power/cigarette lighter outlets give no power?


I do not have a diagram for this but : Lighter outlets are a "high draw" item which will be served by a circut breaker, not a regular fuse. Circut breakers are small silver plug in items found on your fuse panel. Both units may be on different lines also because of "HI draw". I'ts also not really difficult to make a new circut for this, to add outlets where you need them, or to replace missing ones.

Power outlets don"t work


Be sure what you are plugging into the outlet has the same polarity as the outlet itself. Some of todays accessories being foreign made have a reverse polarity versus american made cars.

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.
