Most owner manulas provided with the vehicle have a section that identifies fuses for specific items/ circuits.
If you don't have this manual, try this:
Cigarett lighters draw a lot of power, so they would not put it in a circuit that only uses 20 amps or less.
You can pull (one-by-one) the higher-rated fuses until you get to one that is blown. You can see a blown fuse by looking through the body of the fuse and detect a break in the wire inside.
When you find such a fuse, identify its value by a number inscribed or printed on its body and replace it with a new fuse of equal value.
Actually the yellow wire is the key on (ACC) power. Above in the first picture is the wiring diagram which as you can see the wire I marked with the yellow arrow (the yellow wire) goes through the ignition switch and only supplies power with the key on. The constant power wire is going to be the orange wire (I marked that wire with a orange arrow). I continued to the next picture below the first picture marking the same wires and colors from the first picture to the radio. The fuse for the yellow wire is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle (see location in the 3rd picture and marked the fuse panel with a red arrow). and will be the one marked radio either on the cover or the panel itself but should be a 7.5 amp fuse. Now the fuse for the orange or the wire that should be constant power is a 5 amp fuse and will be marked "Chime". Now in the last picture (bottom right) is the wiring diagram for the lighter which is kind of a separate circuit. It does have one fuse in common but that fuse feeds power to the fuse panel inside but if that one was out you wouldn't have tail lights, parking lights and a number of other things so I doubt its the main 30 amp maxi fuse in the fuse panel under the hood. The fuse for the lighter as far as a dedicated fuse for the lighter is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle and will be marked "lock" and is a 20 amp fuse. Sorry I don't have a fuse panel diagram as far as the fuse layout but I hope this helps you.
The Fuse for the cig. light outlet is located in the fuse panel inside the vehicle in the left (drivers) side kick panel (see picture below). Below in the last/bottom picture is the fuse layout and I have marked the fuse you are looking for. It's a 15 amp fuse. Hope this helps.....
Hello! Best bet is to visit the local Buick dealership and give them; proof of ownership and the vehicle's VIN# (they often do this free of charge; but not always) in return they will give you the code...To prevent this from occurring whenever the battery is disconnected; Do the following...Connect a 9 volt battery to a cigar plug (mind polarity) and plug into the cigar lighter BEFORE disconnecting the car's battery...This will hold the radio up until the car's battery is re-connected...Guru...saailer
have you checked the fuse for the cigarret lighter in the fuse box. You should be able to look in the car manuel to see which fuse is the cigarret lighter then pull it out with either needle nose pliers or a provided fuse puller and check to see if the little wire inside the fuse is broken. if it is then replace that fuse with one of the same amperage rating. If not and you really want to get into it buy or borrow a volt meter with a continuity tester (checks if wires have breaks and shorts in them) and test contiuity from one lead of the cigarret lighter to the other with something plugged in and on that you know works like a phone charger. Then test from the positive lead of the battery to the positive lead of the lighter and the negative lead of the lighter and something grounded like the car's frame or a body panel that is bare metal like the floor board make sure you scrape a little paint off to test this.
maybe the wires going to be faulty or mistake received of opposite the wires? Check your under hood, look at fuse. You need the Negative light pen, you can check to on these fuses.. See the light is on until light out which you should knows.
