The cigar lighter is installed from the back of the center trim panel.

To remove the center trim panel, open the ash tray and pull out on each lower corner. It will be hard the 1st time you remove the spring clips. Once the lower part is released, work your way up to the top, there are 3 spring clips on each side of the center trim panel. ( circled in black in the picture below )
When you get to the top, be careful how far out you pull, the Passenger airbag deactivation light is at the top, with 2 small wires to it. ( circled in green )

Once you have the center panel released, you can remove the HVAC connector ( clamp over type connectors ) or work on it in the truck.

Remove the cigar lighter connector, and release the locking tabs on the cigar lighter body. Pull the lighter plug through the front of the panel.

How to replace the cigarette lighter


You have have to unscrew and remove some of the plastic on the left side of the ash tray, then reach behind the lighter and the housing will unscrew from around the lighter. But first pull the fuse and after plastic removal unplug the wire or wires from the lighter. Then proceed in reverse to install

If your cigarette lighter is not working, be sure to check the fuse. other wise, replaceing the lighter is reasonably easy, if you can get to it. all you have to do is unscrew the housing from the inner section, remove the old lighter and replace with a new one. most wireing is a simple plug in. If you are unsure how to access the lighter, a haines or chiltons manuels for your model should be able to show you how to access it.

I have a 2006 Stratus and the cigarette outlet has come unscrewed from the housing and I dont know how to get access to be able to screw it back in.


You have to access the cigarette lighter assembly from behind its mounting. The lighter is clamped in place by a round metal shell with threads. Twist the shell clockwise to tighten the lighter assembly.

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter is a 2000 ford ranger? Neither one of the lighters work. I also need to know what size fuse it is.Thanx


This is most likely not a fuse issue if it is the fuse box under the dash of the drivers side and its unfortunately a process of elimination to find the blown one. However i believe this is more likely to be an issue with the cigarette lighter unit and / or housing. These can be bought and replaced with minimal effort. See you local automotive parts retailer.

Cigarette lighter


There should be a pair of thin metal tabs along the side of the body of the lighter housing. These need to be gently pulled away so that they click underneath the console when inserted.

Once you remove the console to get to it there should be a bracket holing it in place. Undo wire and remove. Once you get to the inside you can't miss it.
