    obviously they are entirely different things and as such on different circuits for safety. Has the battery in the fob died ? do you have a spare key to try ?

    The key FOB worked right before I changed the fuse and I only have one key.

SOURCE: 12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

SOURCE: how do you replace a fuse for cigarette lighter in 1999 chevy mal

The fuse box for the 99 malibu is right next to the battery, under the hood. It is a 30amp "mini fuse". You can find a chart for which fuse to which circuit, by looking at the lid for the fuse box. This is one of the things I like about the car. If you are using the cigarrette lighter for smoking materials, clean the ashes and residue off the cigarrette lighter (when its cool) with a brass brush, outside the car. Do not let cigarrete material build up in the lighter or it will short.

SOURCE: Where is the cigarette lighter fuse in a Toyota Celica?

There are 2 possible areas. 1 is the fuse box beside your left foot. 2 would be in the engine compatment on the right.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter does not work

This is Fuse 32 under the hood in the fuse box. I had a problem with this fuse as well. I don't smoke so didn't care when I first realized my lighter didn't work, but my check engine light came on and when I took it to get the engine code read, the part they connect to under the dash (ODBII) would not give them a code. I left the store not knowing why my check engine light was on and annoyed there was another problem to fix. After a few hours of troubleshooting with my Dad, we figured out the same fuse that controls the lighters is the same one that powers the OBDII system, and Onstar as well. I hope that info helps someone else.

Horn cigarette lighter use same fuse replaced fuse but neither work


Did you also check the BATT1 fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay center? You should have 12 volts through the BATT 1 fuse, the red wire connected to one end of the CIG FUSE, and the orange wire from the other end of that fuse to the cigarette lighter. If you lose 12 volts along that path, check for broken or burned wires.

I have the same problem with my 2008 Grand Prix - replaced the batteries in both key fobs - they worked for a few days and quit working. Remote start does not work and both of the cigarette lighter chargers do not work either. I have recieved a "charging system failure" message on the readout screen as well. I have checked with 2 different mechanics and they are not sure what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a 1997 boxster and the central locking does not work, the doors all lock with the button on the dash, but the key fob wont work and if you lock it with the key it only locks the drivers door?


I connected a cigarette lighter (male on both sides) between my car and another car. Do not start the car, just wait until the battery has a little charge. The front bonnet should open allowing you to replace the battery. You will need to recode the radio (http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/porsche/ )

Alternative: Some newer boxsters have a red power post new the fuse box.

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.
