Yes, it most likely did blow a fuse, most fuse boxes are under the hood you will see a fuse box close to the fire wall. Also there may be one on the drivers side, open the door and look on the side of the dash, look for a cut out to stick your finger nail in and pull out. Be careful with fuses as your car will have one for the air bags. read your drivers manual for the location of the fuse box and the fuse that is bad.

The electrical outlet in the Montana SV6 is not working. Could it be a fuse? Where would we find the fuse if that is the problem.


On our 2001 Chevrolet Venture (same vehicle under the sheet metal), both the front and rear 12v outlets are controlled by the same fuse, which is in the fuse box located next to the passenger front door. If one of these outlets blows the fuse (a portable ball/tire inflator will do the trick with us), all of them will shut down.
I have also had the 12v outlets stop working, even when the fuse was good. I discovered that I had a bad connection at the fuse box; wiggling the fuse box assembly itself would cause the outlets to flicker on and off. Detaching and re-attaching the modular cable that connects the fuse block seems to have corrected that problem for the most part. However, sometimes, our 12v outlet will still flicker, even though power remains constant to everything else in the vehicle.

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.

Power Outlets (cigarette lighter) will not work front or back


It sounds like the receptical has shorted out. Remove the receptical and make sure the ground wire (black wire) is in tact, and make sure the wire to the center of the receptical (power wire) is securely attached. If both are secure, the receptical is faulty and needs to be replaced.

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

so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck
