    That is my problem, I cant get the mount behind to catch the threads of the metal outer casing. The back mount gets pushed back too far for it to do. I think I need to get in there to hold the back mount steady to catch the threads.

You have to access the cigarette lighter assembly from behind its mounting. The lighter is clamped in place by a round metal shell with threads. Twist the shell clockwise to tighten the lighter assembly.

Go to your dealer and drag the parts guy/girl out to your car and point at it. They may know it by a different name. Try thermostat housing.

SOURCE: how to replace 2006 dodge stratus cigarette lighter cylinder

The lighter base is held on with a threaded sleeve from the back. You would need to get access to the back of the socket to remove it.
You can look at a new part to see how the sleeve is attached.

Need to know how to change break light bulb


Open the truck & remove philips head screw that is located to the left of the tail light housing in the trunk lid weatherstripping housing area. Next unscrew the trunk lining screw to fold back the trunk lining to get at the two plastic wing nuts that hold the light housing.

Unscrew these two wing nuts and slide the housing out, then remove the bulbs and replace. Bulbs come out similarly to how you'd replace the front headlight bulbs (unplug, twist counter-clockwise to unlock and remove old bulb, replace with new bulb and turn clockwise to lock, plug back in).

Power outlet


If you are sure the outlet is to blame and not the charger, it could get a little tricky trying to diagnose the wiring without a wiring diagram and a little electrical knowledge. I dont know if you were just sitting in your car or going down the road, but keep in mind some power outlets are switched off by the ignition key. Beyond those few thoughts, wouldnt hurt to have a qualified mechanic look at it, I've seen enough people screw up the computer when they thought they knew enough about wiring in vehicles and that is not cheap.
