Fuse 12 20A keeps blowing. controls OBDII and cigar lighter


Hi John!
  • There is a short in the Circuit. Do not put any more fuses in it.
  • Take it to the Electric Shop to have it diagnosed.
Good Luck,

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

My cigarrette lighter shorted out now my fog lights will not work.


Hello! Accidental short on the cigar lighter or a failure? If it was a failure has the cigar lighter socket been replaced and is OK? If the failure or accidental short on the cigar lighter happened when the fog lamps were on current back fed through the Fog Lamp Relay and may have damaged its contacts...Question then becomes; Is the fog lamp fuse (FOG LPS 15 A) OK...it is in the under hood fuse block..Have you checked the fog lps fuse? if it is good and fog lamps do not come on replace the Fog Lamp Relay (under hood fuse/relay block)

Lighters in my 95 ford windstart not working


in the inside fuse box check fuse 22, this is for the rear cigar/powerpoint socket, also check fuse 28, this fuse is for the front cigar lighter, there is good chance that both fuses are blown, u will need a 15 and 20 amp standard fuse to replace them.

I have Mitsubishi eclipse '98 GS.Cigaret lighter just stopped working. Checked the fused and replaced but it's still doesn't work. I was using a portable compressor to pump some air in my tire. I need it...


so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck

The cigar lighter isn't working how do I fix this problem


This is a fuse problem, check the fuse, it will either be marked lighter or power point, the fuse box is to the left of the steering column it has a plastic cover over it, inside the cover the fuses will be marked on a diagram. If the fuse blows again the cigar lighter is shorted, you will have to replace it, most times the lighter element is the problem and not the well it fits into.
