Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Cigarette lighter came off

Hi,
I noticed the cigarette lighter plug was loose when my gps and radar detector kept going on and off, so I tried to push the plug in tighter and eventually removed it and along came the attachment inside the cigarette lighter. I tried to put it back inside but still not getting any power, I never had this type of prob. before... any advise would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Chris

Test to see if you are getting +12V at the center contact and connect meter to an alternate ground point....perhaps the ground wire fell off?? Otherwise I would see if power lead slipped off rear of lighter connector.

Usually this is a fuse problem. Lighter could have stayed pressed too long or element worn out. Some newer cars do not have an ashtray and opening is power outlet for computer, radar detector, etc.

Cigarette lighter keeps blowing fuse


when the lighter is not pushed in does the fuse still blow? If not get a new plug in bit. Try some other plug in unit (GPS--dash cam--tyre compressor) or anything that uses a plug for the cigarette lighter and see it the fuse still blows.

I PLUG IN MY RADAR DETECTOR AND IT PLOWS MY FUSE , EVERY TIME ?? ANY SEGESTIONS ???


To blow a 30amp fuse means you have a dead short to earth. Check the polarity of the connection. It may be in the wire and not in the unit. I assume you are using the cigarette lighter socket.

I need to find a 12 volt switched line in the dashboard of a 2011 town and country


Usually your cigarette lighter is what is used to power the radar detector. If you want to add a 12 volt power port then you will need a multitester and check for a hot fuse on your fuse box that is not hot when the ignition is off, and wire your 12 volt power source into that.

12v power port (not cigarette lighter) with radar detector connected killing battery without car running


it sucks power through anything it's plugged into, like a power outlet on a wall, even something turned off takes a tiny amount from it. you have to unplug it every time you cut the car off. or did you want someone to tell you a way to rig it! that's why you have a freaking radar detector, you're a speeder, you should just get rid of the damn thing honestly, they can ticket a parked car with one of those.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work. Need to know where the fuse is


If the cigarette lighter does not stick when you push the lighter in then this is the step to take. The prongs inside the lighter adapter have been pushed too far out. ( This happens if you plug other electronics like satellite radio or radar detectors) First, you MUST take out the fuse from the fuse box located under in the glove box. Second, look inside the lighter adapter (not the lighter) you will see two prongs that are supposed to be flared a bit inward. Simply get a small flat head screwdriver and pick the prongs outward but not too much. Do test trials with the lighter to ensure the lighter sticks. Plug the fuse back in and your lighter will be good as new. -Pete

My Mazda 3 cigarette lighter socket quit working.


It's under and behind the glovebox.

The black panel has clips like on a gameboy battery compartment, with that removed, you still won't see fuses. There's two skrews near the hinge (on the outside of the glovebox), turn these counterclockwise with your hands. The fusebox will swing down.

The cigar lighter is a blue 15A fuse on the left side closest to the driver's seat.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.
