Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek

1 Answer

Cigarette lighter port (upper location) in rear seat console does not have power since the BCM was replaced. I think it might be a loose connection.

For the second time in my Aztek's life, the upper power port in the rear seat console, (between the two front seats, not the rear hatch port), has lost power after having a mechanic fix an electrical issue. I have a feeling it is just a loose connection, or failed to be reconnected. How do you check the connections on the center console ports?

    Thanks. That was the first thing I tried, since my Sirius was notorious for popping that fuse. It is intact, though.

Check fuse it could be dirty or blown. Change fuse or clean the terminals where fuse sits with WD40.

I am going to guess that you're correct on your Transmission, is it only when your vehicle is getting ready to shift?

SOURCE: where is the cigarette lighter fuse on a 2002

Hi, the fuse you need to change is in the fuse box under the hood. It is in position number 32 and it is a 20 Amp fuse (yellow).
Take care

It really sounds like it is your cigarette lighter fuse, but could possible be a problem with the BCM. If you double check the cigarette lighter fuse and find it to be good, getting power in and putting power out. You might end up at the dealership for a BCM module diagnostic.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

Help, I only have the cigarette lighter port and no power ports


The fastest way is to add an auxilary power port. You can get at O'Reilly or any good car location.
Mount the unit in a convenient place under the dash.
Connect the red to a live always on wire or run out through the firewall and to the pos term on the battery.
Connect the ground to a good metal connection under the dash.

You can also find the original unit at Crysler or junk yard, but the 1st concept is much easier to implement.

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

Cigarette lighter stopped working


Your post is just a tad bit confusing. In most cars these days they have a ciggarette lighter as well as a power port or two.

Is your cigarette light port and your power port, in your eyes, the same thing? If yes, and you've checked the fuse and "it appears to be fine" then I would say that you have a short in your wiring that for some reason isn't tripping the fuse. Unlikely though.

I believe in one car I worked on had two different fuses that went to the ciggarette ligher. Maybe just maybe you have a few different fuses running your ports and you checked some of the fuses but not all of them.

Most cars have fuse boxes in the following locations: Engine Bay, Glove Box, Drivers or passengers side kick panel, trunk.

The most likely spots to check for a fuse box is to the left of your legs while sitting in the drivers seat and underneath the hood.

Hope this helps out,

1993 Mercury Tracer cigarette lighter


I assume that you tried the cigarette lighter itself and didnt rely solely that the charger was working properly. When you tightened the ring on caseing did you see that the wire connected on the back of the lighter was properly attatched, sometimes a good connection loosens up especially if caseing was found to be loose.. Well assuming it was properly connected you could test the circuit with either a multimeter or 12 volt test light if power is found at connection then you problem is definetly the cigarette lighter assembly itself.. I hope this was helpful...Let me know I would appreciate it
