Cigarette lighter in 1997 Cutlass Supreme

I purchased this vehicle new in 1998 and have 27,000 miles on it and
upon purchasing a GPS I found out the cigarette lighter outlet does not
work. This lighter was never ever used and upon trying to charge the GPS we discovered the lighter outlet doesn't work --- is this difficult to
to repair and if I would have to take it to a dealer, do you know what
the cost for the repair might be?

thanks

I had a blown fuse for cigarett lighter and int. light, i do not have owners man. pulled fuses one by one, found the bad one, now my car wont start..any suggestions?


my guess is that you pulled a fuse and did not reinstall it in the correct location. a missing fuse could cause this concern.

My car cigarette lighter is not working. I have a 98 plymouth breeze and I've tried checking the fuses and its still not working. My radio and everything else works just fine do i need to replace the...


If all the fuses have been checked and are working as you say, try doing a voltage check on the cigarette lighter receptacle itself. If you set your DVOM (Digital Volt/Ohm) meter to DC volts, you should be able to measure 12 volts (+- 2) at the receptacle by placing the red lead to the positive end of the receptacle, which is the little button on the very back of the barrel, and the negative end, which is the outer chrome housing. (Of course, some vehicles require the ignition key to be placed to Acc or Run, but I'm sure you already know how your car is configured.)

If there is no voltage there, the fault may be in the wiring itself, behind the cigarette lighter. Get behind it to make sure that the positive lead hasn't been pulled out or is corroded for some reason.

If all is well with the receptacle and you want to be able to actually USE the cigarette lighter in it, you may want to consider purchasing a replacement lighter. You can find a lot of those in the "Help" line of parts at your local auto parts store.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions. :)

How much can i get for my 1997 oldsmobile cutlass supreme that is in good condition and runs, but has a rear main seal leak.


to replace the rear main seal on that car is expensive and may cost as much as the car is worth,it depends on the mileage and body condition, maybe 1000.00, a 1997 cutlass supreme in good condition,with 100,000 miles can sell for 2000.00. yours needs a rear main seal.and you say its in good condition inside and out then start at $1400.00.

there is another fuse box under the hood in front of the battery. it will be a small 10 or 15 amp fuse change it and all will work again. if that is not the problem then check behind the glove compartment there will be another fuse box.

It could be as simple as a blown fuse, could also be a bad socket or bad connections.
