You should Have A Couple a fuse boxes under the hood make sure you check the one for the lighter an there is probably another back up one too. once you find the one for the lighter check if its broken replace it. Then if the radio still give you trouble try the back up one if its not broken leave it out for a few seconds then put back and restart.some models dont have that back up so just replace the fuse 2 or 3 dollars or at autozone.I hope that helps.

After a phone charger disassembled in the lighter socket some parts of the lighter must have shorted in the socket. I checked the fuse under the dash but it doesn't look to be blown. The lighter,


The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

Cigrate lighter and radio is not working, i hadaspark from cigrate lighter when used bad charger for i phone


You most likely blew a fuse. Locate the fuse panel and look for the fuse that protects the radio and cig lighter (aux power). be sure to replace it with the same amperage rating as the original one.

Plugged phone charger into cigarette lighter and radio power blew out?


It sounds like you blew a fuse. Check those in the interior fuse box (left kick panel, below the dash--fuse chart on the cover) and those in the engine compartment fuse box (far upper left as you face the car. Chart on cover). The fuse for your radio and perhaps for your lighter (combined) is probably in your kick-panel box.
Hope this is of some help.

Same exact problem


Theres a blown fuse, unplug the phone charger and any other acc you might have. Check the box under the left side of dash and under hood fuse box. How are you checking the fuse? Test light or visual? Sometimes its hard to see a blown fuse. I see this all the time at the dealership, also make sure theres no coins that might have fallen into a socket causing the fuse to blow.
