Could be more than one fuse when the lighter stops working.Under the hood remove the cover on the fuse box and with the key on check all fuses with a test light.The 2 fuses that may be blown are closer to the driver end of the fuse box,but check all.One will be blown for sure.

My cigarette lighter and accessory sockets don't work. I used a fan heater that you plug in and it blew and my sockets no longer work. My fuse in the inside fuse panel is good. How do I get the sockets out...


if you plugged the fan into the cig socket you may have spread it out to far but the sockets unscrew from behind i donot remember if the panel pops off and there may multiple fuses as well

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

1991 Accord, stereo stolen, now no heater fan or cig lighter


while snagging your tunes, these guys may have disconnected a ground wire, pull out the heater fuse, check to see if 12v is getting to the fuse at box, if so and the fuse is good,it's a ground or switch issue,they probably have a book on your car at the library with the wiring diagram, they have a copier too

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.
