The scocket is held in place be a threaded sleeve on the back side, you will need to tighten it. It's easy after you get to it.

Cigarette lighter in car


The lighter in a Chevy Lumina can get lost easily if you routinely pull it from the socket to plug in electronic devices like GPS systems, cell phone chargers and laptops. If so, you need to replace it.

2001 Montero Sport cigarette lighter interior light will not turn off


No its not normal and yes that could drain the battery.
I would think the light around the ignition key lock would be on too.
Probably a courtesy light problem - there is a timer somewhere that turns those lights off after you close the doors.
If it is just the light for the lighter you could cut that wire.

Hi, I need to replace the cigarette lighter in my 2005 Mazda 6. I use a cigarette phone mount and the current cigarette lighter hole moves when the mount is placed in and a small piece of plastic has...


Before replacing lighter socket, try gluing it with super glue. Sounds like your only problem is that socket is moving because of broken plastic. Or you can buy aftermarket accessory plugs from autoparts stores and you can get them with up to three outlets for multiple plug ins.

How do I remove and replace the cigarette lighter socket on a 1998 Buick Riviera


The entire trim around the ash tray/cigarette lighter pulls forward, allowing access to the rear of the lighter socket. Remove the electrical connection and then turn the retainer counter-clockwise. The socket removes from the front. Reinstall reversing the procedure.

Battery dead; cannot open hood


If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)
