SOURCE: 1997 Acura RL cigarette lighter Accessory outlet not working

I had the same problem, turns out tere was a fuse in the fuse panel beside the brake pedal that was blown out, however the fuse wasn't for the lighter it was for the headlights or something but the headlights we're still working.... CHECK ALL of the fuses, not just the lighter

SOURCE: 12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory dead

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

WHERE IS FUSES FOR CIGARETTE LIGHTERS LOCATED


Should be under the steering wheel like any other car. There is a box. Just open up the box (You may need to pry off the cover with a flat head screw driver). I own a 91 Explorer and there is a diagram right on the back of the cover along with a fuse pulling tool. The owners manual will also have a diagram. Look for the terms "Accessory", "Lighter", "Socket" etc. Any Ford I've ever seen supplies power to the cigarette lighter even when the car isn't running so it will be easy to test.

The cigarette lighter not work


First and most simple, get a new cigarette lighter. Stores sell just the part that plugs into the dash. If that does not solve the problem, check the fuse box. If that is not the problem, you will have to tear apart the dash, usually just take out the radio and replace the entire cigarette lighter.

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse


Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

The cigarette lighter doesnt have power, but the fuse is okay


first check the lighter element. try it in another vehicle too.

Try to plug in a car charger or some other accessory & see if they work.

Do you have a power point too?
