Cigar lighter not working (fuse is ok)


Could be the element in the lighter, with a multimeter check the element for continuity. Also check the earth side of lighter socket for continuity as well.
If both OK check the socket for power, may be the power wire has come away from the back of the socket.

Saab centre consil lighter not working


interior fuse box lower dash drivers side the lid will give the fuse location etc . the rear 'lighter socket ' is usually for 12v auxillary input lead ie tyre compressor , unless it had a lighter in it, don't use this as a lighter socket as will blow fuse , the same may be for the front as most cars i've seen post 2008 dont have cigarette lighter's only 12v AUX sockets . check with your drivers handbook

After a phone charger disassembled in the lighter socket some parts of the lighter must have shorted in the socket. I checked the fuse under the dash but it doesn't look to be blown. The lighter,


The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

Cigarette lighter on 2004 Grand Prix isn't working.


The lighter socket or the element.
Check the element for burn marks and the socket for debris blocking the contacts.

Keep blowing fuse with lighter - replaced lighter 3x's and doesnt work


There is a short in the wire somewhere... Disconnect the battery, get an ohms meter and remove both the wires from the cigarette lighter and check for connectivity. Trace the wires back to where the short is. It is also possible that the socket is bad, look inside the socket, you will see the positive connector in the socket, the ground is the sides... without touching the two with the same probe at the same time, make sure the wires are disconnected and chech with the ohms meter for connectivity between the side of the socket and the positive lug on the back of the socket.

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 !

My grandpa has a 1992 Buick Park Avenue. The cigarette lighter on the dashboard does not work, but all of the other ones do. It is the hole part that is the problem because the plug works in the other...


Cigarette lighters wear out from use. On the front of the hole where the lighter goes there is a retaining ring that is threaded onto the lighter socket. Unscrew the ring and the lighter socket can be removed from the dash. Disconnect the wire from the back of the socket and replace the lighter assembly with a new one, Don't forget to plug the wire up to the back of the new one.

Cigarette lighter fault Jaguar S Type 2005 2.7 D


Sometimes the lighter has a small built in fuse. Get a test light and check the center pin of the socket, it it does not have power, take the socket out and check the wire, it the wire has power, the fuse is bad. Sometimes you have to buy the whole socket to get the fuse, but I done know about your particular socket on a Jaguar.
