Cigarette lighter doesn't work

either the push in part of the lighter is bad a fuse has blown or the actual socket has burned out. check the fuse first if it is good then get behind the lighter and check to see if there is power to the lighter. if there is then replace the lighter assembly while your there. hope this helps

The cigarette lighter on my 2001 ford escort zx2 does not work. It isn't a fuse and there is no power going to the leads that connect to the lighter. Can't figure this out. please help. John C.

FYI, the ligher only gets power when the key is on. If it doesn't have power even with the key on, then the leads probably came off the back of the lighter.

Cigarette lighter don't work can't figure which fuse it is.

if your fusebox is in the panel to the right of the ignition key, the fuse is number 29, this fuse also covers other items so it maybe that either the cables have come off the back of the lighter or it is faulty if the fuse is good. hope this helps.

Cigarette lighter fuse location on Ford Escort ZX2 2002

I had exactly same problem. I could not use my GPS or charge my cell phone.
In front of the driver sit, there are actually 2 fuse boxes. You probably found the first one. A second one is located above well hidden. Once you find it, you'll find the fuse you are looking for.

Fuse location

The fuse is located near, but not within the main fuse box. (took me 5 years to figure that out...haha) The main fuse box is the one that is shaped like an upright rectangle, containing most of the fuses for the car, and concealed by a cover. Don't bother with the main fuse box...

Look immediately above the main fuse box, and you will see a uniquely shaped fuse holder, containing, you guessed it, the cigarette lighter fuse.
The fuse holder should say "20 Cigar" on the cover. The cover actually swings open from the bottom. Just grab it gently between two fingers and give it a tug, it'll pop right open giving you access to the fuse.
