On some vehicles, you may have to remove a cover for access to the main fuse block; the main fuse block is located in the underside of the instrument panel, in or behind the glove compartment.

Convenience Center: The convenience center is located under the instrument panel, on the right side next to the fuse block. This unit houses circuit breakers, relays, chime module and hazard flasher.

Underhood Electrical Centers:
The right side electrical center is located on the right side inner fender in the engine compartment. The left side electrical center is located on the left inner fender behind the battery. These centers house a variety of fuses, fusible links and relays, all of which are identified on the cover. The center can be serviced by unfastening the cover and remove the appropriate component.
Some vehicles may use a forward lamp center, which is located on the front right inner fender in front of the ECM unit.

Some vehicles with ABS utilize an ABS electrical center. The center is located between the shock tower and the battery.

Check the next locations:
Instrument Panel Fuse Block
* Sunroof Fuse -->> Position 6 for Power Accesory / Sunroof Control Unit

* Cigar Lighter -->> Position 1 for Cigar Lighter

Also, here can check you Owners Manual.

Hope this help.

Failed emission obd not working on 1996 buick roadmaster

Common problem. You most likely have a blown fuse on your cigarette lighter circuit. These get shorted out all the time due to faulty phone chargers, GPS units, coins in ash tray getting stuck in the socket, etc...

This same circuit is what powers pin 16 of your data link connector(an OBD scanner will not work without it).

The Fuse you need to check is the CIG/DLC fuse, which is Fuse #28 (20 Amp) in your instrument panel fuse block. The instrument panel fuse block is located on the driver's side of the instrument panel.

Be sure to check your cigarette lighter for some of the things mentioned above, and take corrective action, or you will only blow another fuse.

Which fuse is for my cigarette lighter?

It should be a very high value fuse, somewhere above 20 amps, but all fuses shoud be indicated on the cover of the fuse box, if not spelled out, then at least by a pictogram. Otherwise just check through the fuses one by one and look for the blown one - the should be a fuse remover tool in the fuse box.

95 buick regal cigarette lighter. replaced fuse. went to 3 different places, got 3 different replacements-no go... any ideas? thank you.

Without the fuse in it, use a polarity checker to check contact made from each end (end where fuse is and center of female lighter receptacle...THEN IF there is no current flowing, the entire unit is defective..replace from a wrecking yard...easy to do...
