Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

After our daughter borrowed the ford explorer 2002, the cigarette lighter doesn't work. There is no juice to the wiring. We checked all the fuses. They all work. Tried to take the console off and found too much to have to disconnect. Gave up. I was told by a friend to check with google and you are where I ended up.

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 !

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

Cigarette Lighter, used for charging phones, doesn't work!


check the wiring to it? it should be getting a battery voltage (between 12-14v on a good battery) it will be simple enough, as it will only have two possibly three wires.

hope this helps.

Hi Rudy

You will have to inspect the cigarette lighter closely, I suspect your son has bent the 2 terminals that make contact with the lighter, and this will continually giving you a dead short and blow your new fuse.
As for the other problem, your idea of shrink insulation sounds perfect.

Good Luck !
John.
