You can check for power if you have access to a test light. The very center should have power. Its a simple 2 wire circuit. One is power ( middle) the other is ground. Usually it is a blown fuse. Did you just look at the fuse? Or did you use a test light to determine that it was good?

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

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

Cigarette lighter not working,already change fuze for 2002 4door explore, what to check now?


use a test light on cigar lighter, put probe in center of socket and the ground on outside of cigar socket or any other good ground. if power to socket, this will tell you if the cigar socket is bad and needs replaced. if it has power and lighter does not work, then its the heating element itself thats bad, the part that heats up! good-day !

Interiour light dosent work *** lighter dosent work


First thing to check: fuse(s) for the cigarette lighter/power port, which may also be the same fuse for the interior lighting that went out. Could post the location of your fuse box (most Hyundai cars have 2 - one under hood, and a second under the dash (where your power port/interior lighting fuses are most likely located)), if you could clarify which model/year/engine size Hyundai car/truck is giving you problems.

Door and visor lights will not come on,is it a fuse? I lost my owners manual


Fuse #21 is a 15A that covers the interior lights, cigarette lighter, and clock. Are those other items also not working? If so, it is very likely the fuse. If you're connecting something like a cell-phone charger to the cig lighter port, that might be causing a short to blow the fuse...

Interior light or cigarette lighter not working, have checked fuse box but does not show for cigarette lighter or interior lighting (2003 Nissan Almera 1.5S)


That's where a $5.00, 12 volt test light comes in handy. All you have to do then is touch tip on ends of fuses to see if they are good or not. No pulling fuses and no head scratching wondering which one it might be. If you have power on one side, but not the other, you found the blown fuse. It certainly is not uncommon to find the bad fuse, labeled wrong, or added in with something else that makes no sense at all.

First of all, you had a short in the electric system that included your cigarette lighter. When you saw the spark, you saw the result of a short. What you are experiencing now is a bad ground in the system.

This is what we refer to as stray voltage, which is why your lights are staying on. This is not aa fuse problem. If you haven't unplugged your cigarette lighter, do so. You are going to need the services of an automotive electrian to solve this problem. The reason your cigarette lighter may have been unplugged is that someone else knew of the existing problem.
