The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

Keep blowing fuse with lighter - replaced lighter 3x's and doesnt work


There is a short in the wire somewhere... Disconnect the battery, get an ohms meter and remove both the wires from the cigarette lighter and check for connectivity. Trace the wires back to where the short is. It is also possible that the socket is bad, look inside the socket, you will see the positive connector in the socket, the ground is the sides... without touching the two with the same probe at the same time, make sure the wires are disconnected and chech with the ohms meter for connectivity between the side of the socket and the positive lug on the back of the socket.

Hi, I have 96 mazda miata, it seems cigarette lighter not working, checked the fuse compartment under the dash board and fuse was good. what can i do next? please, thanks.


The lighter itself could have gone bad. The actual cigarette lighter part go bad if they are used frequently. The socket part are less likely to bad but they do on occasion. If you have a car charger for your cell phone or something of that nature you can find out if its the receptical or the lighter itself.

I have 2 cigarette lighters in my 2000 mustang and neither one of them work. I looked at the fuses underneath the drivers side and under the hood and none seem to be blown. any ideas?


you can check with a volt meter and see if you in fact have 12 volts going to the cigarette lighters. if there is no voltage there you can trace the wires from the lighters and see where on the fuse box they are connected to and see if they were just wired wrong. could also be a bad ground wire or a disconnected ground wire. I have seen some cars that someone has installed a new radio or something and cut the main ground wire to these accessories by accident. again, trace the wires out and this should tell you what is going on. you can also run your own hot and ground wire to the lighters and fuse them to a spare fuse at the box. I hope this helps.

Silverado 2000 5.3 4x4 gas gauge not working properly. Listen I have installed (2) new fuel pumps and fuel level sensor. I installed a insturment cluster. I ran a new ground wire from fuel pump to...


there are 4 wires at the sender - and 3 wires for the vapour sensor-the two heavier wires are for the pump and the lighter wires are for the guage-the lighter purple wire should have 5 volts on it-if not you may have a wire or computer problem-th guage is an input to the pcm(computor) under the hood and then is transmitted via comm. line to the cluster-if the rest of the guages work in the cluster you need to look at the pcm or wiring to the tank

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.
