Question about 1999 Buick Regal

Car cigarette lighter dead

What does this mean? I commute every day so my battery seems fine. What could cause this. I just got my car serviced and they replaced the spark plugs. Could this have something to do with it?

I have a car battery charger that plugs into a cigarette lighter. However, I lost the directins & don't know if the charger itself is charged. Also, How do I use the charger if the car battery is...


I am guessing that you mean you have one of the jumpstart devices that you plug into the lighter socket? If that is the case plug it into the lighter socket turn it on and try to start the vehicle. If that doesnt work or you think the unit itself is dead plug it into the lighter socket on a vehicle that has a fully charged battery to charge it. If you post the manufacturer, model and name of your charger we may be able to find a manual for it than i can answer your question better

This is a common problem. Your alarm was on when the battery went dead. When the alarm activated, the hood/bonnet opening lever locks to prevent thieves from opening the hood in case the top is down. Some boxsters have a jumper post the pulls out near the fuse box. However, I do not think the 1997-1999s have this post.

Buy a male-to-male cigarette lighter adapter at the auto store. Connect between your car's cigarette lighter socket and the other car's cigarette lighter socket. Do not try to start the ignition or the any other electronics. You should not even need the key in the ignition. You should be able to pop the door locks with the remote and open the bonnet.

unfortunatley with the newer cars these days everything is computer ran. It could be many different things causing this problem or simply the altenator. If you take it to a reputable shop and have it scanned they would be able to pinpoint the problem and you can go from there.

How can I open the luggage compartment of a Porsche 911 when the battery is dead?


The best way to do this is to put battery voltage back into the system through the cigarette lighter. You can buy a battery charger at an auto parts store or walmart that is designed to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. It will have a plug on it that insert right into the cigarette lighter. Let it charge a little, and try the button again. It will pop right open.

Cigarette Lighter, used for charging phones, doesn't work!


check the wiring to it? it should be getting a battery voltage (between 12-14v on a good battery) it will be simple enough, as it will only have two possibly three wires.

hope this helps.

Apart from the fuse box in the engine bay there is a fuse repository behind the coin alcove underneath the boot release. Fuse 3 for the lighter (I think) was blown. I replaced it and now the climate control console responds and the display lights up.

Do you need the lighter? if you don't need, just cut the wire behind the lighter. otherwise you have to find wherr is short, electrical problem is the hardest one. you have to use meter to test each wire see if it is short.
