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.

My cigarette lighter doesn't have power for my GPS. Do you know how to check or replace the fuse for a 2000 VW golf?


Hi,

first check all your fuses and replace any blown fuses.
if that fails you'll have to check connections,but i think the fuse responsible for the cigarette liter is fuse no 33.


Good luck!!!

12volt power socket in front of car doesn't work.


It is most likely the socket itself. Quite often I have seen corrosion build up and prevent it from conducting electricity. I would check behind the socked at the connections to see if there is power there. Or check at the breaker box for power at the fuse. Hope this helps!

My 2002 VW Jetta cigarette lighter will not work. I have tried replacing the fuse, and nothing. How do I (myself) change the cigarette lighter? Thanks for your help!!!


You need a dc current test light to see if it is getting current, or plug in a cell phone charger to see if you are getting current. Our it could be the the lighter insert, a burnt out element and not the socket.

My cigarette lighter is jammed, have been told it could be the fuse but I cant find my manual. Any idea which fuse would need replacing in a W reg VW Polo?


If you mean that the lighter will not pull out of the socket then it's nothing whatever to do with the fuse and everything to do with a bent bit of metal.

All you can do is to use a bit of intelligent brute force: don't just try and yank it out, try pushing it in and twisting slightly before pulling it out.

Ultimately, you may just have to yank it out and can expect to have to replace either the lighter or the lighter and socket afterwards.

Does Volvo cigarette ligher socket accept standard chargers?


Check the fuse in the car charger, and try in another car. The manual with should show where the fuse location. (because it worked befor you charged it,sounds like the car cord fuse is blown or the cord is defected)
