The cigarette lighter is a heating element. You have a short in it and the extra draw is causing the fuse to burn instead of the element. Buy a new one.

Because it wants you to stop smoking, an alternate to that is the lighter is shorted or the wire leading to it is

SOURCE: 2000 jeep wrangler fuse keeps blowing?? What do I

That or the wiring to it is shorted at some point. Remove the connection at the center back of the socket and replace the fuse--if ok, replace or repair the socket. If still blows fuse, check the wire you removed for damage near any metal object.

SOURCE: Fuse to suburban cigarette lighter/power locks keeps blowing.

Unplug cigarette lighter, check circuit, unplug each door individualy at first, Don't forget the back doors, check circuit. Usualy the door wiring is damaged but there may be more then two cigarette lightes depending on the model.

I can not figure which fuse goes to my ciggarette lighter in my 2008 camry le


It is probably associated with some interior group, such as glove box or something. Usually something else will not work when the lighter blows. If its still working..plug in something with a light..then one by one pull an interior item fuse...youll soon know.

My ciggarette lighter worked once now it dosent. When I pushed it i heard a click like a fuse blowing. Do you know how i might fix this? I have a 97 ford escort lx.


If you don't have the owners manual with Fuse Box Diagram and that is not marked, The Lighter would say AUX or Misc or Lighter, the easiest way to find the blown fuse is to check them all one at a time. Since you heard the fuse blow it is the interior fuse not the one under the hood. It may have just been a bad fuse but if you replace the blown fuse and it blows right away then start checking for a grounded wire or if you added and AMP or something and tapped that line look at moving that splice to another line. A common item to splice into this is the Alarm or AMP but there are other items that might have been spliced in like a radio if that is not the factory AM/FM Cassette.
