even though the fuse is good, change it anyway and look for other bad fuses. it is possible that someone rewired and put wired them somewhere else. i just saw that yesterday. also, check to make sure a wire did not fall off or get broken/fried. if both power points are not working they are connected to the same power and ground points, whereby creating a circle/circuit. also check to see if one of the units is bad. if it take two to complete the circuit/circle and one unit is bad, maybe the circle/circuit is broken. you can test the units with two jumper wires and your battery/a jump box. these units are only + and -.

SOURCE: The cigar lighter isn't working how do I fix this problem

This is a fuse problem, check the fuse, it will either be marked lighter or power point, the fuse box is to the left of the steering column it has a plastic cover over it, inside the cover the fuses will be marked on a diagram. If the fuse blows again the cigar lighter is shorted, you will have to replace it, most times the lighter element is the problem and not the well it fits into.

inside the cover of the fuse panel there should be a diagram of which fuses control what.

the fuse box is usually on the drivers side by where your feet are.

SOURCE: punto 56,cant find fuse for cigar lighter (help)

rayann i do believe the fuse block you need is behind the glove box and you will find the one marked lighter. you might invest in the childreds car manual for the car also reading this instead of watching television can sure pull you feet from the fire one day

Hi there
If it was the front dash mounted lighter socket you used, the correct fuse is the 15A CIG & RADIO fuse (at the end of the second row) of the dash fusebox. If replacing the fuse hasn't fixed it, you may need to look closer at the wiring from the fusebox as it's likely the wiring has gone open circuit.
Take the fuse out and check for voltage at the terminals in the fusebox with the ingition key turned to the ACC position. One terminal or the other will have 12V on it. If no voltage on either you have a fusebox to ignition key wiring problem. Check for voltage on the ACC pin of the ignition switch, with the key turned to the ACC position. That's pin 3, a blue wire, of the 8 pin ignition switch connector. If still no volatge the switch is likely faulty. the voltage into the switch must be there as it also feeds the ECU and IGN systems, so the car wouldn't run at all if it wasn't.

There is another possibility. If you have an alarm system, immobilizer or turbo timer (assuming the GTT model) these devices could be interrupting the power lines and be the culprit devices.

I assume it wasn't the rear hatch area lighter socket you used, because the fuse for that doesn't power the radio or clock. The fuse for that socket is the 15A ACCESSORY fuse in the passenger side footwell fuse panel.

Fuse 12 20A keeps blowing. controls OBDII and cigar lighter


Hi John!
  • There is a short in the Circuit. Do not put any more fuses in it.
  • Take it to the Electric Shop to have it diagnosed.
Good Luck,
JP

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

Cigar lighter in My 1996 toyota avalon cannot work well because my navigator cannot charge when pull inside the plug. my radio is ok and I check the fuse it is in good condition. So I think the problem...


there could be no screw, maybe clippers holds that. try pull the frame with hand to unclip, could be bad connection in back of cigar lighter or bad wiring

The cigarette lighter in my Mazda 6 2003 has never worked since I've owned the car. I bought a new fuse and tried that, but it still doesn't work. You press the lighter in, and it doesn't even pop back out...


Which fuse did you install, and was it good or bad?Are both sockets dead?That car uses 2 fuses , each power outlet has its own fuse. R CIGAR and CIGAR, Fuses 10 and 13 Sometimes there is a fuse built into the cigar lighter socket, If the fuses are good, that fuse in the socket might be bad. If it is indeed bad, you will need a new socket. If you have a test light you can check for power at the center of the socket, if you do have power, then the ground plug may be off.

Check the fuse for the cigar lighter. This is the same fuse for the OBD-II plug. This is the cigar lighter, cab fuse panel, fuse # 3.

Cigarette lighter not working


Have you tried plugging something like a phone charger into the lighter socket to make sure there is power there to start with ?

If there is power then either the cigar lighter element is shot or there is a bad joint which is breaking down when the cigar lighter load is applied

I have Mitsubishi eclipse '98 GS.Cigaret lighter just stopped working. Checked the fused and replaced but it's still doesn't work. I was using a portable compressor to pump some air in my tire. I need it...


so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck
