Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Cigarette lighter in 96 Nissan Pathfinder does not work

My cigarette lighter is not working and neither is the 12V outlet at the rear of the console. I'm thinking that it is a blown fuse that is the cause, however I cannot find a fuse diagram in the factory manual that came with the truck, nor is there one on the fuse cover. I just need to know which fuse slot covers the cigarette lighter and what the amp rating is. Dale

    I want to know which fuse in the fuse block runs the cigarette lighter. I don't want to test each and every fuse. There is a SPECIFIC fuse that runs the lighter. Since Nissan in their infinite wisdom neglected to furnish a fuse diagram in their ownership materials or on the fuse block door, I am stuck.

If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.

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.

'06 cadillac dts- no power @ cigarette lighter & center console 12V outlet


I know in my 06 CTS I had the same problem with the cigarette lighter. It came unclasped. Simply Take the complete part out (the piece with the ashtray and the cigarette lighter together and there is a plug there, make sure it is plugged in. They easily come unplugged because of the constant opening and closing of the component itself. I hope this helps on the DTS model.
