Has to be either the bulbs inside your dash ( not a fun thing to replace) or another fuse blown.

    Also I have to tap my dimmer switch on the left side of the steering column to get my dash lights to come on sometimes.

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter doesn't work. It has a fuse but

Either the fuse is blown or a wire is disconnected, like saying my lamp in the living room is not working, either the bulb or the C/B Circuit Breaker tripped.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter does not work looks like

the fuse panel is on the left side kick panel as you sit in your drivers seat by your e-brake where your left foot sits. The fuse is clearly labeled and is noted in the owners manual. I had the same problem with mine. My fuse was fine. Went to dealer and bought a replacement lighter. Works fine now.

be careful if you replace with a lighter other than the one for your vehicle. It may be off a little size wise and not make proper contact and still not work...........been there done that.

SOURCE: both cigarette lighters in panel

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My inside light, radio and lighter went out how do I fix it on 1992 GMC sierra


Check for a blown fuse. Replace fuse. If it blows the fuse right away, then you have something shorting out the circuit.

Fuse panel is probably located under the dash board, to the left of the steering column.

IF you're using the cigarette lighter as an actual lighter and not as a 12 volt plug for a phone charger, THEN I would suspect the heating element of the lighter itself.

Hope this helps.

Cigarette lighter wont work on my 1998 acura 3.2 tl. Dont see a fuse under the hood


The cigarette lighter works only with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position. In the under-dash fuse/relay box, you will find the cigarette lighter relay and the 10A RADIO fuse 11. If the fuse is OK, check 15A INTERIOR LIGHT fuse 57 in the underhood fuse/relay box. If OK, check 50A IG SW fuse 36

Where is the fuse located to make my cigarette lighter work?


a cigarette lighter is rarely on its own fuse, test the plug with a cell phone charger or some other device that plugs into the lighterplug, if it works the cigarette plug is ok, and the actual lighter itself is bad, most auto stores sell replacements

Cant find fuse for cigarette lighter


Your car should have some fuses under the hood AND under the dash. Your cell charger may have blown the fuse or the wire connection behind the receptacle is disconnected.

Cigarette lighter won't charge


IF YOU HAVE A TEST LIGHT, TEST center contact INSIDE THE LIGHTER OUTLET IF IT SHOWS POWER YOUR PROBLEM IS THE GROUND. And The Ground is INCORPERATED into A Bundle Located @ or around Electrical Center= Fuse / Relay BOX under hood. Sounds like a (BODY GROUND) Problem. Also Be Sure it is NOT a KEY ON Curciut. I Have a Carivan that the Cig. Lighters Work ONLY with KEY ON. Hope this is Of Help to you ! .
