Ford does put the Cig lighter and horn on the same fuse on alot of models. You should have a panel under your steering column or on the drivers side dash on the side. Locate your panel open it and look for a blown fuse. Your manual should tell you what fuse it is or use a test light to check them one by one

Need to know what number the fuse is for the cigerrett lighter and where it is locatated at


Usually the Cigerrett Lighter fuse is a 20amp. To be sure look in the owners manual and it should guide you step by step.

Horn cigarette lighter use same fuse replaced fuse but neither work


Did you also check the BATT1 fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay center? You should have 12 volts through the BATT 1 fuse, the red wire connected to one end of the CIG FUSE, and the orange wire from the other end of that fuse to the cigarette lighter. If you lose 12 volts along that path, check for broken or burned wires.

I can not find horn fuse or relay


The first thing is to check the fuse and if thats sokay then check the horns they may be bad, if you use a testlight and have someone push on the horn button and see if theres power to it, if theres power then the horns are bad if theres no power and the fuse is good then you may have a bad horn relay or a problem with the horn buttons or a wire in the steering column,okay lets start with the fuse location, the fuse box is located on the leftside of the dash behind the trim panel, i have enclosed the fuse box diagram and circled the horn fuse which is in location #14 and is a 20amp fuse, take note that the horn fuse is the same as the lighter and glovebox light and power antenna, so if those things are working its not the fuse but you can check it anyway,the horn relay is located on the pass/side of the dash to the right of the glove box under the dash,there you will see a relay box with alot of relays, the horn relay is slot # 2, i enclosed a diagram of its location and the relay spot, hope this is helpful .goodluck.johnjohn2_65.gifjohnjohn2_66.gifjohnjohn2_67.gif

The horn had been disconnected so was reconnected. now after 6 months it has stopped working. we can't seem to locate which fuse to test


instead of the fuse go right to the horn and test for power while someone pushs on it, the most common problem would be a bad horn or the relay. the power for the horn is listed under CIG, its the same fuse as the inteirior lamps and cig lighter and obd2 connector power,heres adiagram to show you the fuse, also this is inside under the dash driverside, hope this helps.179da3b.giff9aa32e.gif

CHIC NEEDS HELP! 88 SEVILLE DE


first if you smoke and was using the cig. lighter look at the element in the lighter and inside the cig. housing may need replace.will cause fuse short open. next get a volt meter and test fuses for 12 volts.the horn may be on a seperate fuse and you may have bad horns or a relay.again you need to unplug the horns and check for voltage on the horn wire when the horn button is pushed.no voltage then remove steering wheel cover and test for voltage threw the horn switch.

Cigarette lightter not working


Hello kspry,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com

Cigerrette lighters are usually an easy fix. If you look under the dish on the driver side, on the door side, you should find a fuse box. Take the cover off, and flip it around. The inside should have a diagram of the fuse panel, which will allow you to locate the lighter fuse. Sometimes the ligher is fused with another component. If it is fused alone, or with another look for the abbreviations ltr, or lit. In newere vechicles, they are known as an "accessory power source" and often do not come with lighters in them. Either way, locate the fuse if possible. If you cannot find any abbreviations that would resemble the lighter fuse, the quickest way to find a blown fuse, is to look at them all. There may be quite a few, but you never know, you may come across another one blown, saving more hassle, time and money in the future. You can also, under the hood (if equipped) look in the fuse/relay box. This should be located on the driver side behind the battery; it's usually long black box. Pull the cover off and look at the inside of the cover, this will also have a diagram of the fuses and relays.

If you are still not able to locate the fuse for the lighter, (which should be under the dash in the fuse box); find the owners manual, or better still, get a CHILTONS or Haynes service manual for your vehicle.

I hope these instruction and information help you find the fuse, and get your lighter working. In the even the fuse is found and good, or replaced if/when needed, and the lighter still does not work, it's possible that you need a new unit. If so, (they should be fairly cheap), purchase one if desired, and replace.

If you need help replacing, let me know and I can walk you through it. This is also a fairly simple task.

Please, let me know if I can be of any further assistance, and thank you again for choosing fixya.com
