It could be as simple as a blown fuse, could also be a bad socket or bad connections.

SOURCE: Radio, A/C, and Cigarette lighter will not work

I had this same problem when i removed the radio to install a ipod jack. The problem is the radio, ac controls, and display is all attached to a pressure button in the rear of the radio.the button has a screw head and a black sleeve covering the rest of the button. when u put the radio back in make sure u have firm pressure when putting back the screws. it would help to have someone push while u tighten.Make sure u put back the side screw on the left side of the radio (a little hard to get to). the pressure button is also adjustable all u need is a phillips. IF THE SCREW IS NOT COMMPRESSED FAR ENOUGH YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL OF THE RADIO,AC, AND DISPLAY

SOURCE: Interior light or cigarette lighter not working,

That's where a $5.00, 12 volt test light comes in handy. All you have to do then is touch tip on ends of fuses to see if they are good or not. No pulling fuses and no head scratching wondering which one it might be. If you have power on one side, but not the other, you found the blown fuse. It certainly is not uncommon to find the bad fuse, labeled wrong, or added in with something else that makes no sense at all.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter in 96 Nissan Pathfinder does not work

If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.

My charger light stay on when I turn off my truck why


Charger light to a phone will stay on because some cigarette lighters do not require a key on for use. It is wired into a 20 amp fuse though. It is best to unplug devices from cigarette lighters to prevent battery drain unless it is an everyday driver. A phone charcger does not draw to many amps for major battery drain.

It starts, but why are all the service lights on the dashboard lit up?


Usually it indicates the alternator is not charging. Get yourself a volt meter that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Read the voltage before and after you tart the car. The voltage should go up from 12v to 13/14v. Keep an eye on it. If it slowly goes down, then the alternator needs to be checked.

2001 Montero Sport cigarette lighter interior light will not turn off


No its not normal and yes that could drain the battery.
I would think the light around the ignition key lock would be on too.
Probably a courtesy light problem - there is a timer somewhere that turns those lights off after you close the doors.
If it is just the light for the lighter you could cut that wire.

I THINK A FUSE BLOWED TO MY CIGARETT LIGHTER, FOUND A FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD THE FUSES ARE NOT MARKED


The lighter has an element that get hot to light the cigarette. That element acts like a fuse as well. It will show an open to the coil if shorted out. Alsao the case this element sets into has a built in fuse. If that fails, the lighter will not work. Ohm meters are used to check these items out if all fuses in the fuse box are OK fine

Locate fuse for cigarette lighter


Normally the fuse for the charger is located in the main fuse box which is in the underside of the dashboard. It will be indicated as lighter/ accessories.normally 15 Amps.
I hope you can use a good torch light to confirm the blown out fuse.
Hope I could help. Good day

do you have your heater controls set to defrost and the fan on high when you park the car,that way when you use your remote it is already set up.Your scooter though,I guess if it was me,I would run wires up to the front seat so I could plug it in the cigarette lighter while I was driving to charge up.

First of all, you had a short in the electric system that included your cigarette lighter. When you saw the spark, you saw the result of a short. What you are experiencing now is a bad ground in the system.

This is what we refer to as stray voltage, which is why your lights are staying on. This is not aa fuse problem. If you haven't unplugged your cigarette lighter, do so. You are going to need the services of an automotive electrian to solve this problem. The reason your cigarette lighter may have been unplugged is that someone else knew of the existing problem.
