Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Many times before, the wire connector that hooks into the lighter will short out or fall loose. Take out the lighter and make sure it is still connected. If so, check out the wires in the harness. If you can't see any damage, check the wires with a voltage meter. You should be able to find the problem. It is probably the loose wire or a bad wire in the harness.

The lighter itself could have gone bad. The actual cigarette lighter part go bad if they are used frequently. The socket part are less likely to bad but they do on occasion. If you have a car charger for your cell phone or something of that nature you can find out if its the receptical or the lighter itself.

Cigar lighters usually have a shell that unscrews from behind the dash. Be sure to disconnect power before removing.

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.

No power to cigarette lighter/power outlet (front & rear)..


Replace the 15 amp ACC fuse that is in the fusebox under the dash. See if this eliminates your problem.

> Any suggestions or reference to free wiring diagram downloads??

It doesn't seem likely since most of that kind of material is copyrighted works. I think they would take offense to putting it on the web.

You might get some help (or even emailed diagrams) from a fellow owner.
