Yah, usually about 4 clips I believe, near the corners. Tried a quick pull eh? If you don't want to go through all of that, by a 12vdc test light if you don't have one already, and very carefully & steady (don't touch side & bottom at same time, you'll pop the fuse) touch probe at dead center of the socket, with other end attached to good ground, it will light up if power there. Or, take fuse out for lighter, and use a screwdriver or something to scrape & clean the contact at bottom center of the socket, and then replace fuse, & try socket to see if it's working.Sometimes it's just a dirty contact.

Your lighter should be on a twenty amp, assy fuse I believe. Have you checked to make sure you have no voltage at your lighter, if so it is the fuse. all assy on every car have fuses

I didn't see the cig lighter mentioned in my online resource, but with my experience on GM vehicles, the under dash driver's side fuse box usually has a cig lighter fuse listed. If not, then you'll have to get a fuse tester and test each and every fuse until you find the burnt out one.

If the fuse is not burnt out, there may be a broken wire behind the console.

Cigarette lighter fault Jaguar S Type 2005 2.7 D


Sometimes the lighter has a small built in fuse. Get a test light and check the center pin of the socket, it it does not have power, take the socket out and check the wire, it the wire has power, the fuse is bad. Sometimes you have to buy the whole socket to get the fuse, but I done know about your particular socket on a Jaguar.

Cigarette lighter came undone. how do I reattach?


I had this problem as well. Start by removing the small plastic plate by the emergency brake (Pull the brake up). It just pops off, Then remove the left side of the middle console that includes the cup holders and ash tray. It will loosen and you will have to manuever it to take it completely out - turn it sidways to get it out from the shifter, You will need to do this to get to the two screws holding in the front panel where the cigarette lighter is at. Using a phillips screw driver, unscrew the two screws at the very botton of the panel near where it would meet the center console. These screws are hard to get to but can be done. Once you have removed the screws, starting at the bottom, begin to remove the panel slowly as the wiring will still be attached. Unclip the emergency blinked power clip. The cigarette will have two plus that will clip off. The wiring will still be harnessed to the panel, By using a flat screw driver, you can push in the plug clips from the opposite side and the wiring plug will come out. Now you have the panel completely out. Position the cigarette holder in, the metal clip with the little handle goes to the rioght hand side in between the two plastic plugs.holding this all together, there should be a metal ring that will screw back in to hold the cigarette holder in place. once this is secure, plug in the three wiring clips and then plug in the wiring harness once you have the panel positioned to put this back in. once your wiring is back in re-mount the panel and put the two screws back in. Put in the center console molding and then put in the small molding by the parking brake.

I am a woman with no mechanical experience , so goes to show you that this is possible. Time it took me to repair - 30 mins including figuring out the panel screws etc.
