On a lot of cars, yes the OBD2 plug is powered by the same fuse as the lighter.

Sometimes the problem is a blown cig lighter fuse if you are using an OBD 2 scanner.

Lighter fuse


Yes.
The OBD connector for the scanner is powered by the same circuit as the cig lighter. If the fuse is blown, the testing facility can not access the computer on the car.

Ok i have a 01 ford windstar the cig. lighter caught on fire. replaced fuse now it and to obd doesnt work. really need obd it is running like u know what. dont know why??


When your lighter lit on fire it could have melted the casings on the wires shorting them together. This would cause the fuse to blow every time you use the lighter. Also it is the same fuse for both the lighter and obd (which in your owners manual will be called Data Link Connector, or DLC). Replace the fuse but don't use the lighter. When you plug in the DLC it should work just fine then try the lighter. If fuse blows you have to fix the wiring to the lighter or possibly the lighter socket.

Does not read obd plug, so it cannot pass inspection, a/c does not work or turn on neither does the cigarrette lighter


often times if you fix the cig. lighter (replace fuse) you will be able to read obd. uses power from that fuse to power up scan tool. make sure no pennies or anything in cig lighter blowing the fuse.

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

Can't read codes with code reader


you most likley have a blown fuse. the fuse for the connector and cig lighter are usually on the same circuit . if you have a owner manuel check and see which fuse is for the obd/cig lighter. if you dont have a manuel then check every fuse in the box and see if you find a blown one. the plug whare the scanner connects is what powers the scanner so if you cant find a blown fuse then you know youre not getting power to the plug for some reason.
