Where can find the Cigarette Lighter fuse

Since I plugged a device in the Cigarette Lighter my cd player and the Cigarette Lighter are no longer working so I think this is linked with the fuse. I have checked in the fuse boxe and the cd player fuse is working and now I want to check the Cigarette Lighter fuse but I can't find it on the fuse map. Is there another fuse box exepted the one in glove compartment?


Thanks for the help

There should be one under the hood/bonnet, this contains the aux fuses and aux relay's, it is a small black box, should be on the opposite side of the steering wheel position.( left hand drive ,it will be on right of car, and vice versa ).........

a cigarette lighter is rarely on its own fuse, test the plug with a cell phone charger or some other device that plugs into the lighterplug, if it works the cigarette plug is ok, and the actual lighter itself is bad, most auto stores sell replacements

Your radio does run off of the same fuse that powers the cigarette lighter and auxilliary power outlet. I would check the fuse again. It is a 15 Amp fuse located in the Driver's Side Junction Block which is behind the left kick panel. The fuse should be marked "Cig"

My cd player and my cigarette lighter both stopped working.


check your fuses, if it's a factory stereo they should be separate circuits. however, if it's aftermarket most stereos have a 'memory' that needs constant power, so it gets connected to the cigarette lighter.

Radio and cigarette lighter outlet not working on 2003 matrix


There are 2 fuses that powers the radio, cigar lighter, etc.
They are: the 10 amp "GAUGE" and the 15 amp "CIG".
Look under the dash, on the driver side. The "CIG" fuse is the one that you need to replace.
It is in the middle of the fusebox, bottom row. again, a 15 amp fuse.
Please advise if you need additional information.

Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead


Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.
