VW T28 84 TDI Transporter cigarette lighter not working


There are at least two reasons why this could be happening. Firstly (and this has happened to me) there could be a foreign body dropped inside the lighter socket, preventing electrical contact. Have a look and remove. Secondly the fuse to the cigarette lighter may be blown. Beware! Fuses do not blow without a reason. If blown, it could be that a conducting foreign body may have been dropped into the socket. Remove the fuse cover and locate the appropriate fuse. DO NOT REPLACE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE FUSE. Should be no more than 20 amps. If the fuse blows again, try the lighter on another vehicle. ( A good friend??) If that blows the fuse too then the lighter is faulty with a low resistance. If not then the lighter circuit on the vehicle needs to be checked by an auto electrician. Good luck!
Cheers, Don.

To remove first remove +ve baterry terminal and then remove both the wire at the back of the cigaret lighter and ther will be a nut at the back just unscrew it, if no nut just press towarts outside.

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


hi,

there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.
