Perhaps debris in socket from a broken phone charger etc shorting out the socket or most definately a short ciruit in the wirinr for the cigarette lighter.

I have replaced the #17 fuse (20 amp) numerous times and the cig. lighter twice


Try disconnecting the cigar lighter altogether to see if the fuse continues to blow. If it keeps blowing, you have a short somewhere in the wiring, if not the lighter is causing the problems.

Toyota Corolla seca1998 radio/cig not working, replaced fuse for cig and it has worked but for no more than a minute or 2, keeps blowing. Assuming it's something to do with a shortage between the cig fuse...


hi there. ok what I advise is to simply disconnect the cig lighter, then replace fuse and turn on stereo. this will tell you which is causing the problem. if fuse blows its the stereo if fuse is good then its the cig lighter. you may have had a child etc put coins in the slot thinking it a slot machine...ive been there before but sadly it was only pennies....they rattle around in the stereo and hit electrical parts. also look into the cig lighter hole and see if a coin or similar stuck down there bridging the sides with the bottom... simply use your finger to check this and not a screwdriver to short it again.

hope this helps you.

Number 3 fuse blows,why??


what ever operates off fuse # 3 is shorting out, you will need to find out what runs off this fuse and then find which system in that fuse is causing the short, for example, lets say that #3 fuse operates the radio, cig lighter and the rear defroster, you would disconnect the radio and then install a fuse, if fuse blows then you know its not the radio thats causing it so then you unhook the cig lighter and see if the fuse still blow if it does then you know its not the lighter, and so on until you find the system thats causing it. good day.

Fuse keeps blowing.even after i replaced the cig. Lighter why


Main cause could be something stuck in the lighter socket. Sometimes, the ends of the car charger for a cell phone of GPS will separate, leaving the end in the socket itself. Placing the cigarette lighter back int he socket while there's something already in the socket will cause you to blow a fuse.

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting
