1997 VW Golf Cigarette Lighter Fuse Location

I was looking for the 12v accessory / cigarette lighter fuse which isn't part of the series of ''easy to get to'' fuses. I searched EVERYWHERE until I happened to find this solution posted by RazFL!

Thank you RazFL !

If you have a 199x Golf / Jetta you're looking for a blue 15A fuse located at the TOP LEFT of the ENTIRE fuse-relay assembly which is pretty high up there (right above relay locations 19, 20 in RazFL's diagram).

To get access there I had to remove the felxible plastic/vinyl faceplate surrounding the ''easy to get to fuses'' and remove the bottom ''knee paddding'' panel under the steering wheel.

It is still not easy to get to, (only one hand will fit) you have to be one of those ''nimble'' handed guys that can work on parts by touch without actually seeing the part, like working with cables behind an entertainment center.

Thanks, I found the fuses I was looking for. Just one note - if your fuse box is like the one in my Golf, there's a little lever on the left hand side that allows you to release the fuse box from the stand and drop it down for easier access.

WHERE IS FUSES FOR CIGARETTE LIGHTERS LOCATED


Should be under the steering wheel like any other car. There is a box. Just open up the box (You may need to pry off the cover with a flat head screw driver). I own a 91 Explorer and there is a diagram right on the back of the cover along with a fuse pulling tool. The owners manual will also have a diagram. Look for the terms "Accessory", "Lighter", "Socket" etc. Any Ford I've ever seen supplies power to the cigarette lighter even when the car isn't running so it will be easy to test.

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.

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.

Where is the cigarette lighter fuse box located on a 1997 chevy malibu


The fuse for the cigarette lighter/auxillary power is located in the under hood fuse/relay block. It is a 20 amp ATM (mini) fuse. It is fuse #34 and is yellow. The location will be shown on the underside of the fuse box cover. Look along the drivers and passenger side inner fender areas for the fuse box. Charlie
