Check the "interior lights" fuse. somehow it is related to the radio and if its blown out the radio wont work either. check every fuse in the fuse box.

I dropped a Penny in cigarette lighter on my 2001 acura rl now the radio doesn't work and fuses appear fine


Some radio power sources also tie into the cigarette lighter and power adapters. You mentioned fuses appear ok, if you dont have a test light to test both sides of the fuses try swapping the fuses around from another location and see if that changes anything.. Oh and if the penny is still in the lighter try a ball of tape of the end of a pencil to pull it out.. Look for a fuse listed aux. power or radio/cig lighter. Most likely the fuse is inside the car not under the hood..(usually)..

The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

I pushed in my cigarette lighter on my 2000 Acura RL and both my lighter and radio stopped playing. What happened?


Sounds like you blew a fuse. The fuse for the radio and ACC which I believe would be the lighters as well is located in the interior fuse panel (see picture of location below) and will be the fuse in the number 4 position (see 2nd picture below of diagram of layout). Now I hope you have the security code for the radio that should have come with the vehicle because you will need to enter it in order to get the radio to work again as it will be locked until you do. On Honda/Acura if you begin to enter the code and you start to enter it wrong continue with a code anyhow because you can't go back. You have 3 trys. If you mess up 3 trys in a row, the radio will be locked for 1 hour and then you can try it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

Plugged in my car charger into the cigarette lighter and my navigation and radio shut off.


It sure sounds like a fuse may have blown, although the cigarette lighter fuse in most cars does not control the radio, and should have been able to handle the car charger without blowing. Take the lid off the fuse box, either under the hood or inside the car under the dash on the right side or left side of the car, and look for a blown fuse. Usually you can tell if they are blown by looking at them.....but you often have to remove them first, depending on the type of fuse used in your car. The inside of the lid may have a chart that shows which fuse controls the radio.
Good luck,
