Question about 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt

1994 gmc sierra cigarette lighter and radio not working-the fuses all check ok

I plugged in a phone charger and heard something pop like a fuse blowing. I checked all of the fuses in the in-dash fuse holder. Is there a relay or another fuse mounted on the floorboard beside the parking brake pedal?

SOURCE: Fuse to suburban cigarette lighter/power locks keeps blowing.

Unplug cigarette lighter, check circuit, unplug each door individualy at first, Don't forget the back doors, check circuit. Usualy the door wiring is damaged but there may be more then two cigarette lightes depending on the model.

SOURCE: The accessories 12 V plug

I don't have a solution for this problem(yet) but have the exact same issue with a 2005 Silverado. All fuses are good and the cigarette lighter outlet works fine. I am looking to get my hands on a copy of the wiring diagram for this truck. I suspect that there is an inline fuse somewhere in the system that has blown but haven't been able to locate. If anyone has a copy of the service(or Haynes) manual for this truck, I would appreciate a copy of the wiring diagram that shows the accessory outlet.

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.

Why did my radio and my cig. lighter stopped working?


I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard "All fuses are OK" or "I already checked the fuse" or "I know it's not the fuse"....I'd be a rich man!

When cigarette lighters quit working, 99% of the time the fuse is blown because someting got plugged into it like a defective phone charger. The other 1% of the time, it is because the lighter element is burned out or somebody essed with the wires to the cigarette lighter trying to install some kind of aftermarket equipment.

Humor me and check Fuse #9 (20 Amp) in the passenger side fuse and relay box.

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

The cigarette lighter is not working- it stopped working about 4 weeks ago


you may have a blown fuse,check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood,if all are OK try plugging something else into the socket, a phone charger or the like to see if that works & if it does the problem is the lighter element is faulty.......hope this helps......cheers

Cigarette plug does not work


Try plugging something else into the lighter socket,,,if it is getting power then you should suspect the phone charger, if it isnt,,then suspect the fuse,,,just open the fuse box cover and you will find the list and description of all the fuses and their locations there.
