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.

Cigarette lighter fuse


by can't find the fuse, you mean you can't find one labeled as cigarette lighter? Or can't locate the fuses?
Visually check for a blown fuse, if none is found you have to assume that the device is broken.

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

Suzuki vitara 2006 cigarette lighter is not working


When you say cigarette lighter does not work, do you mean the insert part, which heats up to light a cigarette, or do you mean the socket? You can test the socket by plugging in a cell phone charger or similar device to see if there is any electricity. If not, then it would be the fuse. To find the fuse, check the net for a manual, stop by the dealer/parts department and ask where it is, or ask at repair shops in gas stations.

Cigarette lighter in car


The lighter in a Chevy Lumina can get lost easily if you routinely pull it from the socket to plug in electronic devices like GPS systems, cell phone chargers and laptops. If so, you need to replace it.

Where is the fuse for cigarette lighter for BMW 2000 5 D series


The lighters frequently burn out after a couple of years but you may still have power to the socket. Plug the charger in and check that the charge indicator light comes on. If it does your fine. If not you'll need to remove the socket and check the wires attached to it.

You likely have a blown fuse. I have heard using the cigarette lighter for charging your cell phone can blow the fuse - was told to use the charger inside the center console for charging my cell phone.

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.
