Question about 2003 Ford Escape

1 Answer

Interior Ac Adaptors

Hello,

I recently purchased a 2003 Ford Escape. Everything on the vehicle works extremley well, except for the cigarete lighter and the front ac plug in. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, however I am heading out on a summer vacation with in the next week so cell phones and laptops will need to be charged along the way.

Is this any easy fix or do I need to bring the vehicle in?

Thanks

Sounds like a short happened at some point. You should be able to just replace the fuse. Check that there isn't a coin or something in the cig. lighter.

Cigaret lighter


cigarette lights draw considerable current flow so look in the engine compartment for a fuse of at least 25 amps.. It will probably under a plastic cover and marked cig

Which fuse is the cigaret lighter fuse in a 2003 e320. the cigaret lighter is not working


Engine compartment (left side), fuse #1 and #6. In MB cigar lighter only works when key is on.

I think you have a W211 if it's a sedan. W210 only goes thru 2002.

Also check the lighter filament. It may just be burned out.

Cigarette Lighter broken on Ford Escape


Fuse box should be located either in the glove compartment, or to your left below stearing wheel. Also check fuses under hood, should be located next to the battery. Double check the GPS, most of them will nox plug into cigarette lighter plug. It could damage the GPS.
