Lighter fuse


Yes.
The OBD connector for the scanner is powered by the same circuit as the cig lighter. If the fuse is blown, the testing facility can not access the computer on the car.

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

Lighters do not work and back hatch will not open. Is it a fuse? Which fuse?


check all the fuses with a test light at the fuse panel as you may have more than one fuse bad.replace the fuse and operate the rear hatch and if it works then and the fuse isn`t blown then you probably have a lighter assembly that is blowing the fuse.to find out which one activate each one separately and check the fuse after trying each one before trying another one.the lighter that blows the fuse you may have to replace the lighter element or the lighter socket to stop the fuse from blowing.

When i plug the lighter radio fuse blows up


Hello Javedkr.
You probably have a short in the lighter that is causing the fuse to blow.
Fairly common problem. Sometimes the whole assembly will need to be replaced as the socket or the lighter may be causing it.

I have a 1991 Mazda Navajo. Dome Lights and Stereo wont work.


You have to be very careful working with cigarette lighter assemblies. The inner parts of the assembly can rotate without you realizing it, and this can bring the positive and negative portions of the assembly together. This can create a short circuit. Normally, the fuse will blow.

I would take the assembly back out and make certain that there is separation between the positive and negative sections of the assembly.

If the fuse is fine, check the hot wire leading to the lighter assembly to make sure you're getting power. If no, you've got a short in the wire from your fuse panel to lighter. If you are getting power to the lighter, take your test light and test the contacts on the inside of the lighter. If no power there, then replace lighter assembly. If you are getting power inside your lighter, it works fine, but the accessory you are plugging into it may be defective.

Cigarette lighter adapter stopped working


I am not specifically familiar with the wiring on your vehicle, but i would say there is still a blown fuse, or the wiring going to your power-port/lighter has shorted.
