Cigarette lighter 1996 4runner

I was testing the amps on my cigarette lighter and I must have crossed the positive and negative. I checked the fuse box underneath the hood and the fusebox near the pedals and there were no blown fuses. Is there another fuse anywhere else for the cigarette lighter?

Central fuse box mondeo 2008


If you own a 12 volt test light you can check the cigarette lighter yourself. The only thing to remember is that the round part of the lighter is the found and in the very center inside is the power. Do NOT allow the negative ground and the positive power touch one another. This will cause a short to ground. You can also remove the trim from around the lighter and make sure it's still connected to the wiring harness. And with the trim off use the test light to check to see if its getting a power source and good ground to complete the circuit. Also look inside the cigarette light and make sure there isn't a bunch of trash or old spilled coffee or soda inside it that is preventing it from working properly. Hope this helps b

I have a 2008 BMW 328xi and my cigarette lighter fuse blew. Which fuse do i change for the lighter, i can't figure out which icon or number the fuse is.


Using a test light connected to negative or ground, check all the fuses on both sides with the ignition key in the 'On' position. A bad fuse will only light on one side.

Cigarrette lighter (front) in 2002 ford explorer - all fuses good. Key inside lighter caused a spark and it doesn't work.


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies, page 210. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

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.

2000 volvo s70 cigarette lighter won't work


test the lighter socket itself by putting a everyday common voltage tester or "multi-meter"in it. place the positive wire on the tester to the center of the socket and the negative to the side of the socket. if no voltage reading, keep the positive where it is and move the negative probe on your tester to a new location that you "know" is a negative like a screw on the door jam area. ( find an unpainted surface"). if you get a reading now then you know the negative on the socket is not connected somewhere in the path. do the same with the positive..... good luck.

1993 Mercury Tracer cigarette lighter


I assume that you tried the cigarette lighter itself and didnt rely solely that the charger was working properly. When you tightened the ring on caseing did you see that the wire connected on the back of the lighter was properly attatched, sometimes a good connection loosens up especially if caseing was found to be loose.. Well assuming it was properly connected you could test the circuit with either a multimeter or 12 volt test light if power is found at connection then you problem is definetly the cigarette lighter assembly itself.. I hope this was helpful...Let me know I would appreciate it

Fuses


the fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse box under the hood. It is a 20 Amp (yellow fuse) in position #32. You can check the lid of the fuse box under the hood for a diagram to show the positions.
