How to change cigarette lighter in 2012 accent


If your cigarette lighter is not working, be sure to check the fuse. other wise, replaceing the lighter is reasonably easy, if you can get to it. all you have to do is unscrew the housing from the inner section, remove the old lighter and replace with a new one. most wireing is a simple plug in. If you are unsure how to access the lighter, a haines or chiltons manuels for your model should be able to show you how to access it.

Go to your local parts store, get a universal replacement cigarette lighter. They are about $7 and have only 1 wire to attach. Takes less than 15 minutes to install or Partsbin.com has them in stock and part number is repu506801

Sounds like the hot wire grounded when it came out. Locate the fuse and replace the fuse for that and the radio and everything should come back on.

How do A wire a replacement lighter when THe old one is no longer there?


The red wire on the replacement lighter is the hot wire. Hook it into the fuse panel if you can't find the old lead from the original lighter. If there is a black wire on the new lighter it is a ground. If there isn't a black one you may have to install one to ground the lighter depending on how you mount it. Just hook it up to the nut on the lighter and ground it.

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.
