1990 Nissan Sentra wiring for cigarette lighter

I'm trying to wire a cigarette lighter up to run my gps. I tried going through the connector/cluster that is for the radio (I believe) There wasn't a radio in the car when I bought it. I hooked up the red and black wires out of the connector of about 12 wires and it works fine, on and off with the ignition, until I turn on the headlights then the lighter loses power. I figure it should be a different wire but which?

    I figured it out. Just used a hot wire, and grounded to a screw.

SOURCE: I have a 1990 Nissan Sentra, car turns over, won't start

do you change the engine oil your car crosses the maximum miles with the old engine oil once your engine oil density become very low you will get the black smoke (or) you need to check the radiator water wether water and coolant is in correct level or not if it is in correct level you need to change the oil

Dont worry about the colors.
Just be sure of the position of the connections.The wires pulled off the light go right back on the light in the same position they came off.

SOURCE: Parking lights on Nissan Frontier on - trailer

First check the fuses. There may be one for trailer running lights. Check also power at the harness. If the brake lights and turn signals are seperate, there has to be a converter from 5 to 4 wire. For the power to feed back to the brake lights it sounds like the vehicle wiring is direct and not using a converter... or one of the bulbs on the trailer is contacting both contacts. Try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx and maybe get a simple 4 pin tester that plugs into the 4 pin connecter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I just put a radio

no where to attach them where ? on the radio, or the car harness? the car has the wire, so the radio doesnt use them? usually Yellow/ Red wires.

Cigarette lighter not working 2007 Nissan Sentra


I will assume you have replaced the fuse for the power outlet?
Next check that the wires on the rear of the lighter are plugged on to it securely.

2014 Nissan Sentra cigarette lighter not charging. How do i check or Fix problem?


Does your cigar lighter work? If so maybe something wrong with your charger?

My wiring database won't have anything on a vehicle this new. So I can't track the cigar lighter wiring circuit. Check your fuse box lid, see if it has a label for which fuse does what, then check the cigar fuse. I looked at your owners manual, not any help. Hopefully your fuse box is labeled.

You could go to your local dealer ship, talk to the service department, see if they will give you a print-out of your fuse box, so you will know which fuse does what.

Cigarette lighter socket came out, no charging


You probably pulled the wiring plug off the back of the socket. Or the fuse went when the socket came out.

Cig lighter on my Pajero io isnt working yet all fuses are is there another location I should look Mike


  • First thing to do is get an multi-meter and set it to DC Volts and see if you have continuity.
  • You should have a fuse box inside the cabin of the vehicle somewhere. Look for this and check those fuses as well.
  • The fact that you have more than one cigarette lighter says you have a cigarette lighter and also have an Auxiliary output. The auxiliary will have more Amps output than the regular cigarette lighter will.
  • If the fuses all check out the trace the wires back with said multi-meter to see where the problem with the wiring is. I have seen the bottoms go out on them and a simple replacement fixes the problem. That's why the continuity check, trace where the power feed is failing and repair it. That's really what this will come down to. Bad socket, bad wiring, blown fuse or you have an issue with the adapter you are trying to use. Keep in mind that the actual cigarette lighter and auxiliary power output will have separate fuses because they are meant to do separate things.

  • If you have any questions then leave them here for me.

  • Hope this helps.

Hey I have a 1997 jeep wrangler. My cigarette lighter will not work! I can not charge my GPS or my cell phone. I just replaced It with a new one and it still will not work! I can not find were the fuse is...


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.
