SOURCE: Whats fuse number for cigarette lighter 1998 Lincoln towncar

The fuse you are looking for is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle to the left of the steering wheel down by the brake pedal. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout and I have marked the fuse you are wanting to check (number 23). Hope this helps....

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

Cigarette lighter keeps blowing fuse


when the lighter is not pushed in does the fuse still blow? If not get a new plug in bit. Try some other plug in unit (GPS--dash cam--tyre compressor) or anything that uses a plug for the cigarette lighter and see it the fuse still blows.

You likely have a blown fuse. I have heard using the cigarette lighter for charging your cell phone can blow the fuse - was told to use the charger inside the center console for charging my cell phone.

Cigarette lighter is not working I need to in case I have to charge my cell phone


this circuit is generally unfused so the problem is either in the lighter, or the base of lighter porthole. either one is availabe at parts houses....plug you cell phone in, if it doesn't work....replace the light base (socket)....

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.

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.

Cigarette lighter wont work no more on my 2001 aurora


1st check all fuses. 2nd why do you need to charge all the time? If your battery keeps going low and you have to charge it all the time , perhaps you need a new battery. If the charger has to give the battery a large charge then it may have caused the fuse to fail on that circut. . Is this device for a cell phone? If it is then you probably blew a fuse. Let me know if you are charging the car battery or charging a cell phone battery.
