If you have the correct fuses in and they are good check the wires going to these plugs for voltage. If no voltage the wire could be loose or broken. Trace them and see

SOURCE: 12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter not working properly in Pontiac...

This is a very common issue, either the ground at the back of the lighter socket is pulled off, or more likely the socket is defective, they are very easy to change, u can use a generic replacement from any parts store, the factory part will be at least 2X as much..

Hi!!
The fuse box under the dash is where the Cig. Lighter fuse is. Remove the plastic cover from it and look on the inside, there is a diagram with the fuse number, name and location.

Check the fuse box for faulty fuses for the radio/accessories and the cigarette lighter. Replace the fuses with the correctly rated fuses.

Horn cigarette lighter use same fuse replaced fuse but neither work


Did you also check the BATT1 fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay center? You should have 12 volts through the BATT 1 fuse, the red wire connected to one end of the CIG FUSE, and the orange wire from the other end of that fuse to the cigarette lighter. If you lose 12 volts along that path, check for broken or burned wires.

Cigeratte lighter doesn't work. Not sure if I'm checking correct fuses...don't have a manual.


YOU NEED TO CHECK ALL THE FUSES WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER. I USE A 12 VOLT CIRCUIT TESTER, { LOOKS LIKE A TRANSPARENT ICEPICK, WITH A WIRE COMING OUT OF THE BACK & AN ALLIGATOR CLAMP ON THE END OF THE WIRE}. THERE ARE TWO FUSEBOXES, 1 UNDER THE HOOD, I INSIDE THE VEHICLE. ALL FUSES CAN BE TESTED WHILE STILL IN THE FUSEBOX. THERE ARE TEST POINTS FACING OUT. POWER ON ONE SIDE ONLY, FUSE IS BAD. POWER ON BOTH SIDES, FUSE IS GOOD. POWER ON NEITHER SIDE, SPARE FUSE.

YOU CAN ALSO CHECK THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER SOCKET. WITH THE FUSE TESTER, PUT THE ALLIGATOR CLAMP ON A GOOD GROUND POKE THE POINTER IN THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SOCKET, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE SIDES OF THE SOCKET, OR YOU WILL BLOW ANOTHER FUSE. IF THE CIRCUIT TESTER LIGHTS UP, THE SOCKET IS GOOD.

I'm trying to install a new stereo and i have all the wires on the wiring kit done but the acc wire. where does this go? i was told by someone to hook it to the cig wire or the ignition wire. how do you do...


you can tap into any 12 volt accessory wire right off of the fuse box, look for the cigarette lighter fuse and follow the wire from there. also -- if you removed a radio from the car before the install of the new radio there should be a accessory wire that ran to that one -- I would use that.
