Yes: there is a 15 amp fuse for it located above the relays in the drivers side of the car.. I found it was the top one of the 3 fuses. it is almost impossible to see theses unless you remove the bottom section of the dash under the stering column.

Check for corrosion in the unit--try to use the cigarette lighter--push in and out several times--if it don't get hot then there is no power--check the handbook for fuse ID but normally not an issue.

Cigarette lighter gone, tried to plug in charger for my phone..but no power tp the outlet..i guess..does it need a fuse, what size and where is fise box and fuse location diagram?


You can find the fuse box, under the steering wheel. Remove the plastic cover, and look on the back for the diagram to see which fuse to replace. Usually for the cigarette lighter there's a small size 15A fuse.

My cigarette lighter inmy 1996 VW Jetta doesn't work. I'm trying to find the fuse


Many cig lighters have inline fuses. The fuse is part of the wire going from the lighter to the power source. It typically looks like a small white tube and can be opened by gently twisting and the pulling apart. Before you do that are you sure its' the fuse? The coil in lighters frequently burn out. Try a lighter from a similar car or plug in a cell phone charger to see if your getting power to the lighter housing. If you have power you can get a replacement lighter at most auto parts stores for a couple of bucks.

My 2002 VW Jetta cigarette lighter will not work. I have tried replacing the fuse, and nothing. How do I (myself) change the cigarette lighter? Thanks for your help!!!


You need a dc current test light to see if it is getting current, or plug in a cell phone charger to see if you are getting current. Our it could be the the lighter insert, a burnt out element and not the socket.

Which is the cigarette lighter fuse for a 98 jetta


It's a 15 amp (blue) fuze located above the relays on the fuse box. You need to remove the plastic fuse housing under the dash (two screws) and unclip the fuse tray and drop it down. The clips are white and are on the sides of the fuse tray, they just snap and swing back. Once you drop the fuse tray you will see several fuses above the relays. The blue one goes to the cigarette lighter. What a pain.

2003 Jetta VR6 fuse question


you will have to look in your owner's manual or remove the fuse panel cover and it may be labled there, with a position number. you will have to look at the position of the diagram either in the book or on the cover then orientate as you look at the fuse box itself. sometimes they lable the fuses with a number under neath each fuse to give it's location. And yes, I don't see why you can't use a charger for your ipod in the cigarette lighter. it should work just fine, people use that for car chargers for cell phones, and lots of other things. if you don't smoke then you don't need to buy an adapter that has one plug on one end to go into the lighter hole and gives you 2 that you can plug things into it...it's called a two in one adapter.
