How to replace cigar lighter on lincoln continental 99 it is not a fuse i need to replace the whole thing


Hi,
To replace the lighter, you will need to get behind the lighter body, which has an outer shell screwed on behind the dash.
Disconnect the connectors on the back, then with the lighter taken out. Hold the inside body, and from behind the dash unscrew the outside body. The lighter will come apart in 2 separate parts.
Thanks

Where can i find the fuse for the cigarette lighter it doesnt work anymore i thin k it may be a fuse


I am pretty sure that the lighter socket is wired in a loop that has more things wired along with it. Have you noticed if there are other things that are not working? Check to see if that is the case. There is a possibility that the coil on the end of the lighter is failed. Try another cigarette lighter from another vehicle in it and see if that works. If so replace the coil as they usually screw off for easy replacement..mike micmor68@gmail.com

My cigarette lighter does not work, it illuminates


A few things you need to check. First check the fuse to see if its blown. Then check the lighter to see if it is still connected at the back of the lighter. Last case the lighter case is burned out . Replace the lighter. Good luck

Cigarette lighter doesn't work


First look inside the lighter socket and see if you have some money or something in there. Then check your fuse. Luckily the lighter is a easey fix. If its niether of these things. check the wires going to it.

Cigarette lighter not working (Ford Windstar 98, 3.0L


Question is, is it the outlet not working OR the actual lighter part of your lighter - the knobby thing you pull out that glows red after it popped back out after a couple minutes after you pushed it in. If it's the knobby thing - plug in a power device like a cell phone charger to see if the outlet works - then replace your knobby thing. If it IS the outlet, it has to be 2 things, one an errant fuse somewhere that is responsible for your outlet - labeled or not - OR a short or loose ground not allowing the outlet to get power. Check your outlet to see if it gets power, check your knobby thing, and check ALL your fuses, not just the ones for the lighter - could be another blown that helps out the outlet , like the one for dash illumination or the ones that control your radio or heat/air.
