1991 Honda Civic CX cigarette lighter?

My CX has never had a cigarette lighter in it since the day I got it. Now I need to put one in, but have no idea where it hooks into. I have the instructions for replacing it, but not for inserting it new. Any Ideas?

I think I have it figured out. First, the Haynes manual shows the lighter and radio circuit. The Chilton(sp?) does not.

The Radio and Lighter are both on a 10 amp W/Bu wire. My 91 Civic actually had a connector tucked behind the radio. A trip to your local junk yard may be helpful. The connector is a 4 pin connector, but only 2 are used.

The manual says the hot wire is W/Bu but the wire looked more W/Grn to me. I also was unable to find any reference to a W/Grn wire in the manual.

The commonality of the wire in the diagram showed as a 4 in a triangle, it was very easy to overlook.

When I found the lighter at the junkyard I also grabbed the portion past the connector. That's how I was able to locate the connector behind the radio. The connector an wires matched. I checked for current with a meter and it looked good. However, it's only hot when the accessories are on.

So far so good. No magic blue smoke has escaped. If anyone sees an obvious error in my posting, please let me know.

check the power in the lighter socket or the charger which is a small transformer has not failed . Try it in another car . If it works there then I would suspect a fuse for the lighter if there is no power there.. Make sure that the adaptor plug is tight as the 2 bars on the side are the earth for the adaptor and if not tight then there may be no earth . Use a flat bladed screw driver and bend the bars out a bit to increase tension in the socket.

Honda civic Cigar lighter not working hondA civic all fuses ok


If the cigarette lighter is the ONLY thing that is not working. Either the wires have been disconnected or the coil is broken. Test the socket with a multimeter. If you have voltage and this checks out, Chances are the lighter itself (the coil) is damaged and should be replaced. If you have no voltage at the socket, the wires are likely corroded or broken somewhere and should be fixed/cleaned/soldered.

You might have a blown fuse, check the fuses. if the lighter does'nt heat up the lighter itself could be bad and need to be replaced, or the outer shell that holds the lighter might need to be replaced.

Fuse box diagram


There are two fusebox diagrams, one is your main fuse box.

- Main Fuse Box - Pop you're hood and it will be on the left, it will have different labeled squares with amperages on it.

- Panel Fuse Box - It's on the driver side to the left of the break pedal. I'd invest in a manual I can't tell you which is which.
