Check fuse #47 in the fuse box under the on the drivers side near the windshield. you will see two rows of fuses on in the back and one in the front. locate the row of all small fuses next to the relays. The fuse there are #'s 43-52.. fuse 46 is amber 40A, fuse 47&48 are blue 15A. check there first as that is the most likely cause for the cigar lighter not to work. If the fuse is good then the lighter will probably need replacing.

YOU CAN PURCHACE A NEW 12V OUTLET AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE EASY TO INSTALL TOO. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH TRIM. TWIST THE HOUSING OF THE OLD ON TO THE LEFT AND IT WILL UNSCREW. REPLACE WITH A NEW ONE THE SAME WAY. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WIRES THAT WILL PLUG RIGHT IN.

SOURCE: cigarette lightter not working

Hello kspry,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com

Cigerrette lighters are usually an easy fix. If you look under the dish on the driver side, on the door side, you should find a fuse box. Take the cover off, and flip it around. The inside should have a diagram of the fuse panel, which will allow you to locate the lighter fuse. Sometimes the ligher is fused with another component. If it is fused alone, or with another look for the abbreviations ltr, or lit. In newere vechicles, they are known as an "accessory power source" and often do not come with lighters in them. Either way, locate the fuse if possible. If you cannot find any abbreviations that would resemble the lighter fuse, the quickest way to find a blown fuse, is to look at them all. There may be quite a few, but you never know, you may come across another one blown, saving more hassle, time and money in the future. You can also, under the hood (if equipped) look in the fuse/relay box. This should be located on the driver side behind the battery; it's usually long black box. Pull the cover off and look at the inside of the cover, this will also have a diagram of the fuses and relays.

If you are still not able to locate the fuse for the lighter, (which should be under the dash in the fuse box); find the owners manual, or better still, get a CHILTONS or Haynes service manual for your vehicle.

I hope these instruction and information help you find the fuse, and get your lighter working. In the even the fuse is found and good, or replaced if/when needed, and the lighter still does not work, it's possible that you need a new unit. If so, (they should be fairly cheap), purchase one if desired, and replace.

If you need help replacing, let me know and I can walk you through it. This is also a fairly simple task.

Please, let me know if I can be of any further assistance, and thank you again for choosing fixya.com

SOURCE: CIGAR LIGHTER WILL NOT CHARGE UNLESS ENGINE

In some cars, the cigarette lighter socket which the charger plugs in to is hot even with the ignition off and the keys out.

In my Grand Cherokee, the keys must be in and the ignition turned to "On" or "Acc" for the socket to be hot. But in neither case, especially the CV, would I expect a problem charging a totally dead cell phone with the engine off, and still maintaining enough juice to start the car.

I assuming, that is provided the car battery is not dead.

Hope helped.

Some cig lighter plugins are wired directly to battery, others are connected to ignition. You can always re-wire it straight to fuse or radio memory wire (Yellow) on cd deck or (Green/Black) from car wiring

My cigarette lighter won't work. Either the unit is burnt out; the fuse is blown or??? I need to fix this as I need a place to plug my cell phone/computer charging stuff. Any help is gr8!


if you don't need the lighter itself to light up cigarrettes, then get rid of the lighter and using a test light or meter, make sure there is power inside thesocket where the lighter plugs into. if power is already there, then your done and ready to go, if power is not there, then check for an open fuse in your fuse panel...some lighter go directly to the battery, in that case make sure that the wires are not broken somewhere between the lighter socket and the battery
