Sounds like you blew a fuse. The fuse for the radio and ACC which I believe would be the lighters as well is located in the interior fuse panel (see picture of location below) and will be the fuse in the number 4 position (see 2nd picture below of diagram of layout). Now I hope you have the security code for the radio that should have come with the vehicle because you will need to enter it in order to get the radio to work again as it will be locked until you do. On Honda/Acura if you begin to enter the code and you start to enter it wrong continue with a code anyhow because you can't go back. You have 3 trys. If you mess up 3 trys in a row, the radio will be locked for 1 hour and then you can try it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

I'm trying to find the fuse for my ciggerette lighter plugs in my 2000 acura TL 3.2...


There is a 15A in-line fuse connected to the cigarette lighter relay. 7.5A ACC RELAY FUSE 8 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box supplies power to the cigarette lighter relay coil.

I dropped a Penny in cigarette lighter on my 2001 acura rl now the radio doesn't work and fuses appear fine


Some radio power sources also tie into the cigarette lighter and power adapters. You mentioned fuses appear ok, if you dont have a test light to test both sides of the fuses try swapping the fuses around from another location and see if that changes anything.. Oh and if the penny is still in the lighter try a ball of tape of the end of a pencil to pull it out.. Look for a fuse listed aux. power or radio/cig lighter. Most likely the fuse is inside the car not under the hood..(usually)..

My interior light fuse (20A) keeps blowing on Acura RL 2000 This also afffects my stereo - I had a mechanic check and they could not find an electricas short so they said it was likely my cig lighter...


Does the fuse blow when you don't have anything plugged into the cigarette lighter? Do you have more than one cigarette/utility port? They are usually on different fuses.

If it turns out that is the problem you can install a separate outlet just for the tape on a higher rated fuse

I have a 2000 gmc yukon denali and everytime i push my ciggarete lighter in it blows the fuse and my radio also stops working


Hi,
Replace the cigarette lighter. Parts houses have the right one for your Yukon.
The lighter itself shorts out so when you push it in it creates an immediate dead short . Fuse Blows.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

How do i remove the radion on a 200 acura rl


You cann't remove only radio you have to remove whole panel which contains radio.

There are two possible scenarios for you car radio panel


1. Your car can have Navigator, Climate Controller and Radio.

2. Your car can have Climate Controller and Radio.

You have to open whole panel.

This Panel contains some of SRS components, so have to be very careful while removing it!

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
