Before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

Cigarette lighter wont work on my 1998 acura 3.2 tl. Dont see a fuse under the hood


The cigarette lighter works only with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position. In the under-dash fuse/relay box, you will find the cigarette lighter relay and the 10A RADIO fuse 11. If the fuse is OK, check 15A INTERIOR LIGHT fuse 57 in the underhood fuse/relay box. If OK, check 50A IG SW fuse 36

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work


hi,

there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

Horn cigarette lighter use same fuse replaced fuse but neither work


Did you also check the BATT1 fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay center? You should have 12 volts through the BATT 1 fuse, the red wire connected to one end of the CIG FUSE, and the orange wire from the other end of that fuse to the cigarette lighter. If you lose 12 volts along that path, check for broken or burned wires.

Cigarette lighter ans accessour power point not working... it's not the fuse


I had a similar problem I thought it wasn't the fuse because I had only checked one but there are two cigarette fuses. Also you can replace the whole cigarette lighter if it is getting power to it. If it isn't there might be a bad wire leading to it. Get a test light to see if it's getting power through the fuses hole.

Cig lighter on my Pajero io isnt working yet all fuses are is there another location I should look Mike


  • First thing to do is get an multi-meter and set it to DC Volts and see if you have continuity.
  • You should have a fuse box inside the cabin of the vehicle somewhere. Look for this and check those fuses as well.
  • The fact that you have more than one cigarette lighter says you have a cigarette lighter and also have an Auxiliary output. The auxiliary will have more Amps output than the regular cigarette lighter will.
  • If the fuses all check out the trace the wires back with said multi-meter to see where the problem with the wiring is. I have seen the bottoms go out on them and a simple replacement fixes the problem. That's why the continuity check, trace where the power feed is failing and repair it. That's really what this will come down to. Bad socket, bad wiring, blown fuse or you have an issue with the adapter you are trying to use. Keep in mind that the actual cigarette lighter and auxiliary power output will have separate fuses because they are meant to do separate things.

  • If you have any questions then leave them here for me.

  • Hope this helps.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.
