    What are you using to test it ?( DC adapter plug on GPS, fuse in end could be blown ). Did you check fuse # 41. If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/o...

    Does anything else not work with it?? Check all the lights, instrumentation, gauges, and power electronic items in the vehicle and see which do and do not work and get back to me.

1. Check the fuse #41 in the cab fuse panel.
If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

2. Are you using a device ( MP3 player, GPS, etc ) to test that it is not working, or a meter ?
- Could be the fuse in the tip of the DC adapter for the device is blown.

SOURCE: cigar lighter problem on 2005 Ford Explorer

even though the fuse is good, change it anyway and look for other bad fuses. it is possible that someone rewired and put wired them somewhere else. i just saw that yesterday. also, check to make sure a wire did not fall off or get broken/fried. if both power points are not working they are connected to the same power and ground points, whereby creating a circle/circuit. also check to see if one of the units is bad. if it take two to complete the circuit/circle and one unit is bad, maybe the circle/circuit is broken. you can test the units with two jumper wires and your battery/a jump box. these units are only + and -.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I replace the cigarette lighter housing?


The cigar lighter is installed from the back of the center trim panel.

To remove the center trim panel, open the ash tray and pull out on each lower corner. It will be hard the 1st time you remove the spring clips. Once the lower part is released, work your way up to the top, there are 3 spring clips on each side of the center trim panel. ( circled in black in the picture below )
When you get to the top, be careful how far out you pull, the Passenger airbag deactivation light is at the top, with 2 small wires to it. ( circled in green )

Once you have the center panel released, you can remove the HVAC connector ( clamp over type connectors ) or work on it in the truck.

Remove the cigar lighter connector, and release the locking tabs on the cigar lighter body. Pull the lighter plug through the front of the panel.

Have this checked with another scan tool. Link error is produced when the PCM fails to respond to the scan tool. More times than not this is the PCM failing.
