Using a test light check for power and ground for the lighter socket. if this is good then then you know the fuse is good. this indicates that you need to replace the cigarette lighter element. the part that gets hot when you want to light a cigarette.

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter sockets no power

Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

How do I remove cigarette lighter socket without removing dashboard?


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.

How do i know which fuse is for the cigarette lighter in my 2010 Mazda 2?


you might want to use a voltage tester to see if there is juice in the lighter socket first.
There is a probe like an ice pick to touch at the center electrode inside the lighter socket, and the alligator clip goes to the ground.
If the test light lights, the fuse is good.

Cigarette lighter is not working.


This problem will require some diagnosis: You'll want to start by checking the relevant fuse. If the fuse is good, use a voltage meter to check the voltage at the cigarette lighter. If there's no voltage, additional diagnosis will be needed to figure out if it's a wiring problem or if the socket itself has gone bad.

Cigarette lighter in center console doesn't work and I can figure out why. Checked all the fuses. Any ideas? Thanks!


pull out socket and check for power and ground wire that goes to center should be the power wire and wire that goes to out side should be ground
if u have power and ground then replace socket
if u dont have power check fuses again look for broken wire
if u dont have ground look for bad wire

Had cell phone and computer plugged into dual cigarette lighter unit and cigarette lighter overheated and quit working - we checked the fuse - it seems fine.Just want the cigarette lighter socket to work...


More than likely overheated the wiring going to the lighter as well and burned it off. If you pull the lighter socket out you should see if it did. Simply solder it back on and be careful not to overload it again.

1995 camry wagon cigarette lighter not working


start with a test light and check for power at the center of the cigarette lighter socket. If power is good, then check for ground at side of lighter socket.
If no power, run wire from power wire of lighter to power wire of stereo, thus tapping the power directly and bothering to trace out where the open int he circuit may be.
