My cigarette lighter inmy 1996 VW Jetta doesn't work. I'm trying to find the fuse


Many cig lighters have inline fuses. The fuse is part of the wire going from the lighter to the power source. It typically looks like a small white tube and can be opened by gently twisting and the pulling apart. Before you do that are you sure its' the fuse? The coil in lighters frequently burn out. Try a lighter from a similar car or plug in a cell phone charger to see if your getting power to the lighter housing. If you have power you can get a replacement lighter at most auto parts stores for a couple of bucks.

My 2002 VW Jetta cigarette lighter will not work. I have tried replacing the fuse, and nothing. How do I (myself) change the cigarette lighter? Thanks for your help!!!


You need a dc current test light to see if it is getting current, or plug in a cell phone charger to see if you are getting current. Our it could be the the lighter insert, a burnt out element and not the socket.

Which is the cigarette lighter fuse for a 98 jetta


It's a 15 amp (blue) fuze located above the relays on the fuse box. You need to remove the plastic fuse housing under the dash (two screws) and unclip the fuse tray and drop it down. The clips are white and are on the sides of the fuse tray, they just snap and swing back. Once you drop the fuse tray you will see several fuses above the relays. The blue one goes to the cigarette lighter. What a pain.
