It could definitely be a fuse - also check to make sure there isn't a coin in there. A penny or a dime fit in there just right and can cause the fuse to blow.

SOURCE: fuse for lighter

fuse panels are often in the inside panel of doors, under hood or under column
The reverse side of cover will tell you were to find it. Check the coils in the lighter itself they could be clogged causing it to blow. You may need a new lighter.

VW T28 84 TDI Transporter cigarette lighter not working


There are at least two reasons why this could be happening. Firstly (and this has happened to me) there could be a foreign body dropped inside the lighter socket, preventing electrical contact. Have a look and remove. Secondly the fuse to the cigarette lighter may be blown. Beware! Fuses do not blow without a reason. If blown, it could be that a conducting foreign body may have been dropped into the socket. Remove the fuse cover and locate the appropriate fuse. DO NOT REPLACE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE FUSE. Should be no more than 20 amps. If the fuse blows again, try the lighter on another vehicle. ( A good friend??) If that blows the fuse too then the lighter is faulty with a low resistance. If not then the lighter circuit on the vehicle needs to be checked by an auto electrician. Good luck!
Cheers, Don.

The cigarrete lighter isnt working


Sure it's the socket itself? You can check it with a test light, but be careful you don't blow a fuse. You need to use the testlight's probe to touch the very rear of the socket (don't touch the sides!), and use the grounding clip of tester to clip on or just touch the side metal of the socket. Turn key on, and the testlight should light up if socket is working. If not, repair the power line to socket, or the ground for socket is open. If socket is good, the lighter itself is bad.

Check all the fuses.
But the same fuse works a number of things such as the coutesy lights and an under hood light if equiped. If your interior and any under dash lights work then the fuse is good. You could also have a bad ground or a bad socket. Or even the GPS plug may not fit will in the cigar lighter socket well enough.

It is a fuse. It's a 20 amp, and it powers the lighter socket too. If you don't use it, check for a coin in the lighter socket before you replace the fuse.

Both lighters don.t work on my 2000 monte. all fuses good.


Did you try testing the circuit at the fuse box and test the sockets with the tester if the fuse circuit is good and the sockets are not then theres either a brake in the wiring or its not connected right to the sockets

Cigarette lighter plug not working


hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out.  No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again.  worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.
