Unscrew the base off via philips screw push the inner workings out you will then see a lever which raises when button pressed .if this lever does not raise then it will not release gas to ignite .check the linkage to the button this is the main cause k coulbeck grimsby

Cigarette Lighter Outlet Doesn't Work; Fuse Still Intact

If the cigarette lighter has been in use for cigarettes ... it could be that the contacts within lighter outlet contact points are heat damaged and connection to auxiliary device may not be made electrically ... You could test if you had a voltmeter ... but if you can visibly see heat damage... perhaps you could try scratching any obvious tarnished metal contact point with screw driver... . (the central contact point is the one that is likely to be tarnished requiring cleaning) unless it is a loose electrical conection gone bad... but that would require removing the cigarette lighter.
Note: recommend to remove the cigarette lighter fuse before attempting to insert a metal object into the cigarette lighter... else sparks may fly and the fuse will/or should blow.

good luck.

Which fuse do I change for the cigarette lighter? Why does my key get stuck in the ignition sometimes?

the cigarette lighter fuse is usually the accessories fuse, the ignition switch may need lubricating, to do this use graphite powder put some on the edge of the key as you push it into the switch, you may have to do this a few times to get enough in,DON'T use WD40 or the like as this only attracts dust & clogs the switch up more.......hope this helps......cheers.

Fuse to suburban cigarette lighter/power locks keeps blowing.

Unplug cigarette lighter, check circuit, unplug each door individualy at first, Don't forget the back doors, check circuit. Usualy the door wiring is damaged but there may be more then two cigarette lightes depending on the model.

Your fuses are under the steering wheel by your brake pedal on the left side ... I'm not sure which 1 is for your cigarette lighter but it'll be 1 of them... Just check them all While your car is off and out of the ignition. If you need some more help just let me know...

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001

It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.

The cigarett lighter outlets do not work.

Most likely you have something metallic that entered/fell inside one of the cigarette lighters.

I once found a dime inside a cigarette lighter which my children assured me was placed there by a shadowy personage named "Notme". Go figure.

While the fuse is REMOVED, look inside each lighter with a flashlight and remove the foreign material.

If you find nothing inside the lighters, disconnect them all from the electrical system by removing the single wire attached to the rear of the lighters. Replace the fuse.

Alternately, you can disconnect them one at a time, replacing the fuse after each one. You may need a few fuses for this.

If the fuse blows after ALL the lighters are disconnected, you have a wiring short circuit which is best diagnosed by a professional.

If the fuse does not blow, begin reconnecting the lighters until you see a spark, or the fuse blows again. This is the faulty lighter, replace it and your problem is solved.

Note: You cannot get shocked or electrocuted by your car's 12 Volt system but you can be burned by heavy sparking. You can reduce the risk of heavy sparking by using a lower-rated fuse during the testing. Wear saftey goggles and latex gloves for safety.

Good luck
