Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

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

How do I figure out if this is a fuse or not? where do I find the fuses for these and how to I replace the fuses if this is the issue? Are both the left and right side console outlets on different fuses?

    thanks that is helpful. I will note that someone had installed a Pioneer CD player and replaced the factory radio/CD player so Im thinking they may not have installed the radio correctly and to make work easier for themselves just "grabbed" the power that these outlets were providing to give it to the CD player.

    thanks. I found out BOTH fuses were blown. turns out that this jeep has a fairly good size Infinity Amplifier under the rear seat for the Pioneer CD deck which is probably what blew them. I noted when I have my radar detector plugged into the right side outlet it shows battery voltage drop and when i crank the stero up the voltage drops more and more so someone who had the jeep before me probably really cranked it up and blew both fuses. Either way they are all set now. Thanks for all the advice.

    good point. Thanks. I will check out its current (pun not intended) configuration and add in a fuse and relay if none is there.

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.

    That makes sense, except I hope they installed fuses in line...those units don't draw much and anything short of a direct full blown short& burn wont trip a breaker.

  • Richard Scordino Apr 21, 2009

    If you are any good at electronics, I suggest that you make a new "clean " circut for the amp using a fuse and relay. Similar to aftermarket supplimental lighting systems use. Main power then would come from the battery through appropriate gauge wire and be protected with it's own fuse.

Which fuse is for the cigarette lighter as want to change it


If by 1 series you mean a 1XX model, the front cigar lighter fuse is 20A FUSE 8 in the junction box. That fuse also connects power to the rear center console charging socket and the luggage compartment socket outlet.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

How do i find out if its the cigarette lighter port or a fuse that needs replacing on my 2008 Mazda 5?


I pulled fuse 4 from the inside fuse box on the passenger side dashboard, but quickly realized it is for the rear power outlet, not the cigarette lighter outlet. The cigarette lighter outlet is fuse number 6. They are both blue 15A fuses.

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.

Radio and cigarette lighter do not get power


The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.

After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

No power to cigarette lighter/power outlet (front & rear)..


Replace the 15 amp ACC fuse that is in the fusebox under the dash. See if this eliminates your problem.
