Cigarette lighter won't charge

My daughter plugged in her blackberry charger and it wouldn't work. When someone else pugged in a different charger, it wouldn't work anymore either, even though it had been working fine. My charger was working in my car. She took mine out, plugged hers in, wouldn't work and now none of our other chargers work in my car either. We tried other cigarette lighter sites in both cars and none of them work now. I checked the fuse and it was fine. Changed it anyway and nothing happened.

If you mean to charge battery of a smartphone, a tablet or some similar device, you pug it in the cigarette lighter slot.
If you mean your car's battery, you can't properly "plug" it. you need a car battery charger.

Used cigarette lighter to inflate tire, left inflater on for a long time now cigarette lighter doesn't work and car doesn't always start


It sounds like you might have drained your battery! When the car is running does the Cigarette lighter produce power? It should be working while the car is running. That would also explain why the car starts sporadically. Try leaving the car on for 40 minutes. That might charge the battery enough.

Cigarette lighter receptacle won't work


Not a Peugeot expert, but its possible the charger is not going in far enough to touch the center of the lighter receptacle. Does the lighter work with the lighter element ?
Sometimes debris collects in the bottom of the receptacle and blocks the contacts.

I have a car battery charger that plugs into a cigarette lighter. However, I lost the directins & don't know if the charger itself is charged. Also, How do I use the charger if the car battery is...


I am guessing that you mean you have one of the jumpstart devices that you plug into the lighter socket? If that is the case plug it into the lighter socket turn it on and try to start the vehicle. If that doesnt work or you think the unit itself is dead plug it into the lighter socket on a vehicle that has a fully charged battery to charge it. If you post the manufacturer, model and name of your charger we may be able to find a manual for it than i can answer your question better

Any kind of charger that i attempt to plug into my cigarett lighter don't charge the devices, does this mean that the fuse has blown and needs replacing? thanks in advance!


The charger should have a light which shows that it has power. Check power at the socket by operating the cigarette lighter. If the lighter heats up you have power at the lighter. If not, locate the fuse box and check the lighter fuse. If the fuse is intact and you have power at the socket the charger is faulty.
Bear in mind chargers also have a fuse in the connector nose. Most unscrew at the nose and the fuse can be removed from the charger.

How can I open the luggage compartment of a Porsche 911 when the battery is dead?


The best way to do this is to put battery voltage back into the system through the cigarette lighter. You can buy a battery charger at an auto parts store or walmart that is designed to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. It will have a plug on it that insert right into the cigarette lighter. Let it charge a little, and try the button again. It will pop right open.

Battery flat cannot release bonnet to jump start


You have to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. Go to an auto parts store or walmart and there you can buy a car charger that will plug into the cigarette lighter. Once the battery charges a little, you can pop the bonnet. Once you have access to the battery, you can use a heavy duty battery charger or replace the battery.

Is the cigarette lighter also the plug for cell phone charger?


The cigarette lighter plug should also work for the phone charger as long as the phone charger uses the cigarette lighter style plug(long with two metal contacts on the sides and a button contact on the tip). Most standard car chargers will fit both cigarette and auxillary style plugs.
