    Thanks. I was able to remove front panel that reaches and clips to the floor. The lighter socket was both not connected properly (one wire was just dangling behind it) & the fuse was also blown.

You just have to be able to get behind the lighter and the whole thing unscrews, don't know about the dash

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.

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

Good morning need to now what is fuse num 17 in my truck ford explorer xls. as soon is i try to put a fuse it pops


Hello, This 25 Amp fuse(#17) is for your cigarette lighter socket. If you used the socket for something else, you may have bent the terminals inside it. You will need to replace this socket as it is shorting out.

This should not be too expensive. Sometimes the autoparts stores have a display of HELP products for typical repairs and a socket going bad is common.

Any kind of charger that i attempt to plug into my cigarett lighter don't charge the devices, does this mean that the fuse has blown and needs replacing? thanks in advance!


The charger should have a light which shows that it has power. Check power at the socket by operating the cigarette lighter. If the lighter heats up you have power at the lighter. If not, locate the fuse box and check the lighter fuse. If the fuse is intact and you have power at the socket the charger is faulty.
Bear in mind chargers also have a fuse in the connector nose. Most unscrew at the nose and the fuse can be removed from the charger.

Cigarett lighter power


The power wire for your socket is connected to the ignition switch. For the socket to operate without the key, the power wire must be relocated to a direct power source or directly to the battery. You can locate a "hot" source by using a 12Volt tester on the terminals of the fuse box. Just touch the tester to the terminals until one lights up without the key on. That terminal is "hot" and will allow your socket to have power at anytime. You should use a power source with a fuse for safety. You can hook directly to the battery but you should add a fuse inline to be safe.

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.
