Either the outlet lighter has something in it shorting it out or it is just simply bad. any local parts store will have one.

    Most of the new cars do die when the battery is disconnected. Nothing to worry about.

The fuse for the cigarette lighter blows everytime I replace it? any suggestions to what the problem could be?


either the lighter or something else protected by the same fuse is defective, drawing too much current and blowing the fuse. that is what it is supposed to do. if you can get at the back of the lighter, pull the wiring connector plug off and then reinstall the fuse. if it does not blow then you need a new lighter, if it continues to blow out then you need to find what else is on the fuse's circuit and disable it.

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.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.

Most likely the fuse is blow. Either a 15 or 20 amp fuse.
Open the glove box and turn the 2 white tabs 90 degrees. then pull the fuse panel down. There is a white card stuck in the bottom of the fuse box that shows what fuse number is the one for the cigarette lighter. Locate this fuse, they are numbered on the fuse box. Then replace it.

Replace the cigarette lighter. Look to find out what else is on the instument cluster circuit, as that may be the problem, or a bad cluster.
