Some outlets will not always mesh correctly with aux cords,see if the male ,on the cord has an adjustment to compensate for the no contact.You might try buying an aux cord to plug into the socket,that has a female socket at the end to plug up the cord.

Hello. Do this. Try charging your cell phone and your gps in another vehicle. Sometimes, the fuse in a charger goes bad, and other times the end of these chargers becomes disconnected and falls off making the charger useless. Check your chargers out somewhere else. If they don't work in another vehicle, you will know it is time to replace the charger. J.

1992 buick century lighter wont work


If the lighter outlet works with a cig lighter, the plug for your GPS may not be making contact with the center point in the outlet.
may have dirt and debris in the bottom of the outlet
You may also have a blown fuse.

Why wont my cigarette lighter work?


It could be the fuse is blown for the lighter socket. If you have something you can plug in to check it (cell phone charger or GPS power cord) try that. What usually happens is the cig lighter itself (the thing you put in the socket and gets hot) shorts out, and blows the fuse.

Problem with finding the lighter fuse in my grand am


Look under the hood on the driver's side near the windshield, there should be another fuse box there and the fuse is in that one. Good luck!

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

Try checking the fuse inside the charger. Ths may be blown. Have you tried another charger in its place ex. cell phone or radar detector? If works for the cig lighter should charge.

Hey I have a 1997 jeep wrangler. My cigarette lighter will not work! I can not charge my GPS or my cell phone. I just replaced It with a new one and it still will not work! I can not find were the fuse is...


there is another fuse box under the hood in front of the battery. it will be a small 10 or 15 amp fuse change it and all will work again. if that is not the problem then check behind the glove compartment there will be another fuse box.

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)
