Can't access fusebox to change to fuse in my Fiesta Finesse 2004

Being a woman I tried to clear some gunk out of the cigarette lighter in my new car with my key!! It sparked a bit and now it doesn't work. My bf has tried to change the fuse but tells me that the fuses are smaller than normal fuses and that he can't get at the fuses without taking the whole drawer out. Can anyone give any advise please? Thanks

You have mini blade fuses in your ford. One of the fuse boxes should have a fuse puller in it. If not then get some long nose pliers to grab it and pull it out. And a way to help clean that out is to get a baby bottle brush to run through it. Just make sure its dry and clean before you try it, other wise it can rust and corrode in the housing and cause more trouble.

Cigarette lighter keeps blowing fuse


when the lighter is not pushed in does the fuse still blow? If not get a new plug in bit. Try some other plug in unit (GPS--dash cam--tyre compressor) or anything that uses a plug for the cigarette lighter and see it the fuse still blows.

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.

How do i change 12v power / cigarette lighter! in a Peugoet 206


The cigarette lighter is connected to a harness that's being the unit. You need to most likely remove the panel that the cigarette lighter is attached to in order to remove the lighter unit out. Once the unit is out, disconnect the wiring harness to exchange it. I don't know how exactly your lighter will come out

Cig lighter wont work


try getting a new lighter. if it is a fuse, it would be labeled on the cover to the fusebox. it is also common for the wiring itself which leads to the cigarette lighter to burn out.
