Check the 'cig light' or similarly abbreviated fuse.

Central fuse box mondeo 2008


If you own a 12 volt test light you can check the cigarette lighter yourself. The only thing to remember is that the round part of the lighter is the found and in the very center inside is the power. Do NOT allow the negative ground and the positive power touch one another. This will cause a short to ground. You can also remove the trim from around the lighter and make sure it's still connected to the wiring harness. And with the trim off use the test light to check to see if its getting a power source and good ground to complete the circuit. Also look inside the cigarette light and make sure there isn't a bunch of trash or old spilled coffee or soda inside it that is preventing it from working properly. Hope this helps b

Stock radios have 2 fuses that run them.

Fuse 1 is usually labeled as Radio in the fuse box.

The 2nd fuse shares circuits with other devices that are powered straight off of the battery, so look and see if your dome light works, and your cigarette lighter. If either of those aren't working, check the fuse for that item. Cigarette lighters are usually listed as Cigar in the fuse box, and dome light is usually CTSY or Courtesy.

Any kind of charger that i attempt to plug into my cigarett lighter don't charge the devices, does this mean that the fuse has blown and needs replacing? thanks in advance!


The charger should have a light which shows that it has power. Check power at the socket by operating the cigarette lighter. If the lighter heats up you have power at the lighter. If not, locate the fuse box and check the lighter fuse. If the fuse is intact and you have power at the socket the charger is faulty.
Bear in mind chargers also have a fuse in the connector nose. Most unscrew at the nose and the fuse can be removed from the charger.

My back window will not let down and the power lock doesnt work on it. My cigarette lighter wont work. My dome light went out. HOW DO I REPAIR/ REPLACE THESE THINGS


Check your fuses. Look at your lighter element. A dirty or damaged element could cause shorting that blows the fuse. A new element can be purchased for less than $5. Check your owners manual and see if these items are all powered by the same fuse.

My cigarette lighter won't work. Either the unit is burnt out; the fuse is blown or??? I need to fix this as I need a place to plug my cell phone/computer charging stuff. Any help is gr8!


if you don't need the lighter itself to light up cigarrettes, then get rid of the lighter and using a test light or meter, make sure there is power inside thesocket where the lighter plugs into. if power is already there, then your done and ready to go, if power is not there, then check for an open fuse in your fuse panel...some lighter go directly to the battery, in that case make sure that the wires are not broken somewhere between the lighter socket and the battery

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.
