Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

My cigarette lighter and accessory sockets don't work. I used a fan heater that you plug in and it blew and my sockets no longer work. My fuse in the inside fuse panel is good. How do I get the sockets out to replace them? Does that cover pop off? Thanks

If you plugged the fan into the cig socket you may have spread it out to far but the sockets unscrew from behind i donot remember if the panel pops off and there may multiple fuses as well

Speakers in my 2000 cadilac escalade stopped working when i held my cigarette lighter in and it melted the lighters coil and it blew lighter fuse . But my radio stayed on .changed fuse still nothing


Not sure why you'd force your lighter in ???, but hey I think if you look at legend for your fuse panel on lid ,it may say that the lighter is part of the accessory's group and so is the sound (pwr) booster for your radio , I think this is part of your problem , overheating socket may have caused a perminate wiring fault to exist in your lighter now

2000 Nissan Frontier Cigarette lighter not working while I use tire compresser using,


Tire compressor probably draws too much current for the socket. Are you sure it is a cigarette lighter socket? Some sockets are just to provide accessories 12v. Did a cigarette lighter come with this socket? True cigarette lighter sockets are generally fused at 25 or 30 Amps

You blew the CIG,RADIO or ACC fuse in the fuse panel, remove and replace with same rated fuse.There is a grounding issue inside the lighter housing from this

you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead


Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.
