use your car manual and locate the fuse box then use the diagram on the fuse box to show you which fuse is for the lighter and remove it and fit a new one and you should be good to go

SOURCE: 1995 subaru cigarette lighter doesn't work

ok you are probably correct to think that you overloaded the plug and burned it out. I have seen decent replacement plugs at auto parts stores for about $10-15. Its a bit of a chore to remove some of the dash trim in that area but it can be done with some patients

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

Cigarette lighter doesn't work.  Tried replacing fuse, but fuse is ok.  How do you remove the front centre dashbaord panel to gain access to cigarette lighter wiring on a 2005 Jeep cherokee ?


before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

The cigarett lighter outlets do not work.


Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.

I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.

While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.

If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.

Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.

If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.

If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.

Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.

Good luck

Cigarette lighter won't work fuse ok lighter base ok


I would put a red volt meter lead on the middle and a the black lead on the outside. If it checks above 12 vols, the lighter itself is bad. If no voltage is present, you have to check all the positive wires back to the battery. If those are all working, you have a bad ground.
