Question about 2002 Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

I charged my cell phone in the front cigarette lighter socket and tried to run a 400 watt power converter in the back power source at the same time, now my Rendezvous battery won't hold a charge. What did I blow out?

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

Cigarette lighter socket came out, no charging


You probably pulled the wiring plug off the back of the socket. Or the fuse went when the socket came out.

2000 year honda civic cigarette lighter not working


check the power in the lighter socket or the charger which is a small transformer has not failed . Try it in another car . If it works there then I would suspect a fuse for the lighter if there is no power there.. Make sure that the adaptor plug is tight as the 2 bars on the side are the earth for the adaptor and if not tight then there may be no earth . Use a flat bladed screw driver and bend the bars out a bit to increase tension in the socket.

Had cell phone and computer plugged into dual cigarette lighter unit and cigarette lighter overheated and quit working - we checked the fuse - it seems fine.Just want the cigarette lighter socket to work...


More than likely overheated the wiring going to the lighter as well and burned it off. If you pull the lighter socket out you should see if it did. Simply solder it back on and be careful not to overload it again.

CIGAR LIGHTER WILL NOT CHARGE UNLESS ENGINE


Some cig lighter plugins are wired directly to battery, others are connected to ignition. You can always re-wire it straight to fuse or radio memory wire (Yellow) on cd deck or (Green/Black) from car wiring

Cigarette lighter doesn't work 2002 Pontiac grand am GT changed


Make sure the wire to the back of the lighter is still live, all you need is a 12 volt tester.Connect the earth clip on the tester to a good earth usually a part of the car body(a screw or bolt head)put the tester into the lighter socket and touch the contact at the bottom.cigarette lighters are usually permanently live but also try it with the ignition on,if it is live the tester will illuminate but i think your wire may be disconnected from the live source.hope this helps.

Cigarette lighter not working properly in Pontiac...


This is a very common issue, either the ground at the back of the lighter socket is pulled off, or more likely the socket is defective, they are very easy to change, u can use a generic replacement from any parts store, the factory part will be at least 2X as much..
