May not be a fuse at all if you have over loaded the socket with a phone charger our other accessories you may have burnt out a fusible link on the back of the lighter socket you will be able to check this by removing the socket and checking the rear of it where you will find a small piece of insulated wire (about 3mm long) looped on the socket, see if it looks burnt if so through he socket in the bin and get a new one. ( check the fuses first though, you may have to consult your owners manual for the correct fuse and the manual is confusing so take your time to read it properly)

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

Where can i find the fuse for the cigarette lighter it doesnt work anymore i thin k it may be a fuse

I am pretty sure that the lighter socket is wired in a loop that has more things wired along with it. Have you noticed if there are other things that are not working? Check to see if that is the case. There is a possibility that the coil on the end of the lighter is failed. Try another cigarette lighter from another vehicle in it and see if that works. If so replace the coil as they usually screw off for easy replacement..mike

I want to change my battery,on my peugeot 307 2ltr diesel but can this be done without loosing the codes

There is an item called a "setting saver" or something like that. It's a small power supply that plugs into the cigarette lighter, that keeps radio and computer active while changing battery. (I imagine you could make one by attaching a cigarette lighter power adapter to a good battery and plugging it in there.Don't use one with a transformer, just straight 12v!

Power outlets wont work

when you look at the fuse box inside your car you will see a cigarette with smoke emitting from it for the cigarette lighter and the power outlet will have a button like picture on it.
