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 -.

Hi John!
  • There is a short in the Circuit. Do not put any more fuses in it.
  • Take it to the Electric Shop to have it diagnosed.
Good Luck,

Can't pass emmissions because fuse is out in my 2005 ford explorer. which fuse needs replacing?


Usually the cig lighter fuse.
If you check all of the fuses and don't find any missing or dead, let me know. Info should be in your owners manual.

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.

Cigarrette lighter (front) in 2002 ford explorer


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.
