If your cigarette lighter socket is not working... it may not be the socket itself that has failed but a fusible link under the dash that has. If it's the fusible link, you will need to get the Haynes Manual to learn where it's located to replace it. The socket is usually powered directly from the ignition switch. Sometimes, there is a fuse for them... check it first. Otherwise, it's quite possibly the dreaded fusible link.

Replace the cigarette lighter in a 1997 Honda Accord sedan


You may have to remove the portion of the dashboard where the lighter is mounted.
Since it's an old '97, there are add-on lighter sockets that attach to the underside of the dashboard that you can add on and you would only have to find out where to connect the wire.

How to replace a cigarette lighter socket


Easiest thing on a car. The new cigarette lighter socket is provided in two pieces, which unscrew from each other. The original socket is exactly the same.
All you need to do is disconnect the positive power lead from the back of the old connector, unscrew the back of the old socket, remove the two pieces of the old socket from the ashtray assembly, put the new socket in place exactly as the old one was, and reconnect the positive power lead.
Should take you no more than five minutes.

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.

My grandpa has a 1992 Buick Park Avenue. The cigarette lighter on the dashboard does not work, but all of the other ones do. It is the hole part that is the problem because the plug works in the other...


Cigarette lighters wear out from use. On the front of the hole where the lighter goes there is a retaining ring that is threaded onto the lighter socket. Unscrew the ring and the lighter socket can be removed from the dash. Disconnect the wire from the back of the socket and replace the lighter assembly with a new one, Don't forget to plug the wire up to the back of the new one.

How do I remove and replace the cigarette lighter socket on a 1998 Buick Riviera


The entire trim around the ash tray/cigarette lighter pulls forward, allowing access to the rear of the lighter socket. Remove the electrical connection and then turn the retainer counter-clockwise. The socket removes from the front. Reinstall reversing the procedure.

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.
