Hi...
On the back side of the socket there is one wire. Remove this wire by carefully pulling it off the connector. The back of the lighter socket will unscrew from the lighter well. Should be a standard right hand thread. go to parts store and buy a new replacement part comes with directions and installation instructions.

Thanks for using fixya

Ford fiesta 1.2 zetec 2012 as soon as you plug anything in cigarette lighter socket it blows 20amp cartridge fuse f30 must be a short carnt find any wire colours from fuse box to trace, not in manual.


Maybe something wrong with cigar lighter socket? The top wire is voltage, bottom is ground for cigar lighter. If the voltage circuit was shorted to ground, it would blow the fuse w/o anything plugged in. If the component your plugging into the cigar lighter is drawing too much, it will blow the fuse.

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 !

How do i replace a cigar lighter 2006 ford escape


not sure on the model of your car but most lighter are installed the same way. you will need to gain acess to the rear of the lighter, you may need to remove panels to get to rear, then you will need to remove power connection to lighter. this will be a plug that slides off, and then theres a nut that screws onto the rear of the lighter socket you will unscrew it as you hold the front off the lighter. the other style would be pop in, this is where theres no nut but rather it pops in and locks,

How do I replace the cigarette lighter housing?


The cigar lighter is installed from the back of the center trim panel.

To remove the center trim panel, open the ash tray and pull out on each lower corner. It will be hard the 1st time you remove the spring clips. Once the lower part is released, work your way up to the top, there are 3 spring clips on each side of the center trim panel. ( circled in black in the picture below )
When you get to the top, be careful how far out you pull, the Passenger airbag deactivation light is at the top, with 2 small wires to it. ( circled in green )

Once you have the center panel released, you can remove the HVAC connector ( clamp over type connectors ) or work on it in the truck.

Remove the cigar lighter connector, and release the locking tabs on the cigar lighter body. Pull the lighter plug through the front of the panel.

Lighters in my 95 ford windstart not working


in the inside fuse box check fuse 22, this is for the rear cigar/powerpoint socket, also check fuse 28, this fuse is for the front cigar lighter, there is good chance that both fuses are blown, u will need a 15 and 20 amp standard fuse to replace them.

Which Fuse in the Fuse Box??


The Fuse bank is located just under the steering wheel next to the park brake. The cover has a diagram on which fuse is for cigar It should be at least a 20 amp fuse. You can pull it out with a pair of needlenose pliers and replace with a new one.
