There is a thick wire right behind the plug that is burned out. Your fuse in the box is likely intact. You will have to remove the center console and then take out the entire plug ( which is somewhat tricky) and get a replacement for it.

Sometimes there is a seperate fuse for just the lighter in the wiring behind the lighter socket you will have to either remove the socket or find the wiring under the dash to see if their is a fuse and replace it if it is worn or even possibly the connections to the socket have worn or become disconnected

1992 buick century lighter wont work


If the lighter outlet works with a cig lighter, the plug for your GPS may not be making contact with the center point in the outlet.
may have dirt and debris in the bottom of the outlet
You may also have a blown fuse.

Why wont my cigarette lighter work?


It could be the fuse is blown for the lighter socket. If you have something you can plug in to check it (cell phone charger or GPS power cord) try that. What usually happens is the cig lighter itself (the thing you put in the socket and gets hot) shorts out, and blows the fuse.

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.
