It gets power from the battery through a fused circuit. Some lighter circuits have relays that turn off the lighter socket when the ignition is off. Turn on the ignition key (you can start the car or use the run position) and see if the lighter socket has power then. If not, have the relay checked if you believe all the fuses are OK.

I have a 2001 DHS Deville Cadillac I lost power for interior lights cigarette lighter power locks and trunk I've tested all fuses and all good how can I get this fixed?


It really sounds like it is your cigarette lighter fuse, but could possible be a problem with the BCM. If you double check the cigarette lighter fuse and find it to be good, getting power in and putting power out. You might end up at the dealership for a BCM module diagnostic.

What is a cigarette lighter fuse


Fuses are located in a plastic box, usually under the hood of your car. When they burn out, whatever they are designated to operate will not work. They are usually labelled. For cigarette lighter, it usually says, "Cig". Cigarette lighters are more important today than they used to be because GPS units and power invertors for computers and chargers for cell phones plug into them. The good news is that fuses are cheap and simple to replace.

Where is fuse for cigarette lighter


The fuse for the cigarette lighter and accessory power outlet on your Alero should be located in the engine compartment fuse block. Marked minifuse #34. Good luck! 25350805-glpfwztfsse5eo2m5j1uuzva-4-0.png

Cigarette lighters not working


Check for power at fuse. If power is there a break in the wire going to cig lighter is broken. If no power than there is a blown fusible link by battery. Check fuses under hood also

Cigarette lighter ans accessour power point not working... it's not the fuse


I had a similar problem I thought it wasn't the fuse because I had only checked one but there are two cigarette fuses. Also you can replace the whole cigarette lighter if it is getting power to it. If it isn't there might be a bad wire leading to it. Get a test light to see if it's getting power through the fuses hole.

Cigarette lighter power source not working!


By all means, ck all your fuses first. Sometimes they blow if someone holds the lighter in.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

1993 Mercury Tracer cigarette lighter


I assume that you tried the cigarette lighter itself and didnt rely solely that the charger was working properly. When you tightened the ring on caseing did you see that the wire connected on the back of the lighter was properly attatched, sometimes a good connection loosens up especially if caseing was found to be loose.. Well assuming it was properly connected you could test the circuit with either a multimeter or 12 volt test light if power is found at connection then you problem is definetly the cigarette lighter assembly itself.. I hope this was helpful...Let me know I would appreciate it
