SOURCE: 1991 Honda Civic CX cigarette lighter?

I think I have it figured out. First, the Haynes manual shows the lighter and radio circuit. The Chilton(sp?) does not.

The Radio and Lighter are both on a 10 amp W/Bu wire. My 91 Civic actually had a connector tucked behind the radio. A trip to your local junk yard may be helpful. The connector is a 4 pin connector, but only 2 are used.

The manual says the hot wire is W/Bu but the wire looked more W/Grn to me. I also was unable to find any reference to a W/Grn wire in the manual.

The commonality of the wire in the diagram showed as a 4 in a triangle, it was very easy to overlook.

When I found the lighter at the junkyard I also grabbed the portion past the connector. That's how I was able to locate the connector behind the radio. The connector an wires matched. I checked for current with a meter and it looked good. However, it's only hot when the accessories are on.

So far so good. No magic blue smoke has escaped. If anyone sees an obvious error in my posting, please let me know.

SOURCE: cigarette lighters

Check and make sure there is nothing actually in them. A paper clip or coin may have fallen in one of them causing the fuse to blow as soon as you put a new one in

SOURCE: The cigarett lighter outlets do not work.

Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.

I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.

While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.

If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.

Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.

If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.

If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.

Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.

Good luck

I put a flint and fluid in my old Ronson lighter, and it STILL won't spark.


Hey Vicki, Did you remove all pieces of the old flint?? it needs to be clean.. The spark wheel must make good contact..(could the spark wheel be worn out??)..Some spark wheels have the carbide only on the edges as rings that do the sparking.. some very high end lighters have a solid carbide wheel..$$... make sure the sparking wheel is making good contact..(you may have to stretch the spring that pushes up on the flint..just a little... good luck..
