If the fuse it good most likely it is the connection on the back of the lighter plug in.
Try to get access to the back of the the lighter plug in either under the dash or by
removing the console. Check for voltage with a voltmeter or continuity tester.
They usually have a ground and a positive blade style slide on connector. If you have
voltage at the plug in contacts then you may have a bag plug in. You can buy them at
any Auto parts store. They have a sleeve that threads on the back side to keep them in place so installation is very easy, just hold the backside sleeve and unscrew the front with your finger stuck in the plug. Getting to it is the challenge! Good luck

    There are Fusable Links in cars. You might try the autoparts store and ask if their
    book shows the locations. Also, if you have blade style fuses, you can get a adapter
    that slides in along with the fuse and will let you connect a jumper to a 12 volt positive
    source thus delivering voltage to your fuse. Just find a hot nearby and connect to it.
    Careful not to overload the cigarette lighter plug in as you are bandaid fixing the problem.
    If you buy 2 of the adapters you can connect to another fuse that has power and bring
    power to the dead one. Good luck

2005 Jeep Wrangler Heater and Cigarette Lighters not working.


May help - fuses supply power but also needed is earth return to battery. This is usually black wires running from device to the car metal. To diagnose you need a multimeter. Check body of cigar lighter is connected to the chasis with meter on ohms. (continuity test) good is zero ohms. If earth problem, check under dash to ensure all earth wires connect to metal chassis. Then with ignition on, check centre pin at back inside cigar lighter has 12 volts to side.
If not then check fuse has 12 volt to it, Now you can get to the fan, repeat all the tests on fan. Best wishes, its tedious work.

Cigarette lighter wont work on my 1998 acura 3.2 tl. Dont see a fuse under the hood


The cigarette lighter works only with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position. In the under-dash fuse/relay box, you will find the cigarette lighter relay and the 10A RADIO fuse 11. If the fuse is OK, check 15A INTERIOR LIGHT fuse 57 in the underhood fuse/relay box. If OK, check 50A IG SW fuse 36

Which fuse is allocated to the cigarette lighter? I initially thought it was the PDC Coils fuse, number 11, but when I switched that with a definitely working fuse, there was no change. Currently, I...


cigarette lighter is fuse #5
however, if that is ok then check the lighter/accessory relay

as for your power outlet...
I've searched a few different models and
cannot find that information

the power outlet might be a dealer add-on or aftermarket at which point power supply could be coming from anywhere

2006 Jeep Wrangler cigarette lighter not working


Check for un-isulated connection on the hot wire lead. It might have been after-market but on mine the connection would short out, blowing a fuse. 1 inch of heat shrink tube fixed the problem.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Electrical Short in Steering Column?


I had a similar problem with my 2000 Jeep TJ and I found the problem in the wiring harness under the hood.several wires were corroded and almost burnt off.If you remove the black tape which keeps the harness bundled together and if you see evidence of "green" type powder or "gook" it's most likely where the wires have faulted.
