Mini Cooper s 2013 cig lighter not working after a penny fell in it


Check your fuse for the lighter. It most likely shorted out and blew the fuse.

My 12v cigarette lighter socket keeps blowing fuses on my Renault Modus.


First step would be to use a bright flashlight and examine the socket (receptacle) closely for the cause of the short. You may be able to remove it. If the fuse blows when you try to use the cigarette lighter, the plug lighter element may be faulty and need to be replaced. These lighters are pretty standard and you could try one from another car that you know works properly to help diagnose.

Fuse blows when cigarette lighter is operated


Element in pull out lighter is likely shorted, try a lighter from another car, if it works, replace the RR lighter element, if it still blows the fuse, it's probably a short in the socket, which then probably needs to be replaced.

Keep blowing fuse with lighter - replaced lighter 3x's and doesnt work


There is a short in the wire somewhere... Disconnect the battery, get an ohms meter and remove both the wires from the cigarette lighter and check for connectivity. Trace the wires back to where the short is. It is also possible that the socket is bad, look inside the socket, you will see the positive connector in the socket, the ground is the sides... without touching the two with the same probe at the same time, make sure the wires are disconnected and chech with the ohms meter for connectivity between the side of the socket and the positive lug on the back of the socket.

You have to get the dime out of there since it's metal and shorting out the lighter contacts.

1991 s10 pickup radio and cig. lighter shrts out


You need to replace the lighter socket. Both of my 1988 S10's had the same problem after a few years of using my cell phone battery charger in the lighter plug. I replaced it 10 years ago and it has been fine ever since. Something in the original socket wears out and causes it to short out when something is plugged in. Good luck!
