If all the fuses have been checked and are working as you say, try doing a voltage check on the cigarette lighter receptacle itself. If you set your DVOM (Digital Volt/Ohm) meter to DC volts, you should be able to measure 12 volts (+- 2) at the receptacle by placing the red lead to the positive end of the receptacle, which is the little button on the very back of the barrel, and the negative end, which is the outer chrome housing. (Of course, some vehicles require the ignition key to be placed to Acc or Run, but I'm sure you already know how your car is configured.)

If there is no voltage there, the fault may be in the wiring itself, behind the cigarette lighter. Get behind it to make sure that the positive lead hasn't been pulled out or is corroded for some reason.

If all is well with the receptacle and you want to be able to actually USE the cigarette lighter in it, you may want to consider purchasing a replacement lighter. You can find a lot of those in the "Help" line of parts at your local auto parts store.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions. :)

97 ply breeze 2.4 no power to the fuel pump fuse is ok replaced relay still no power


ok then, next step is check wiring. looked for open copper touching the frame or chafing through the harness. Then check for grounds. Make sure they are CLEAN and TIGHT. and clean i mean spotless. If that still does not work then check for a different fuse that is burned out. Perhaps something else shares the same circuit as the fuel pump and is blowing the fuse, ie cigarette lighter is a bad one for causing all sorts of havoc. good luck!
