Check again with a test light ... on the fuse itself while the fuse is still inserted @ the metal bits on the top of the fuse both sides (to confirm the fuse itself is getting power from the main and it is indeed good) it could be a maxifuse out somewhere ... in the main box under the hood ... but you may see more things not working if it was the main that you may have overlooked ... ie: stop lamps, dome lamps, etc ... maybe ... anyway check at that fuse with a test lamp or meter You most likely won't have power there or it is blown and just doesn't look it ...

2007 Ford E350 XLT Super Duty. There are 2 cigar lighters. Are they on different fuses?

it is more than likely because cigarette lighters draw high amperage and to have 2 on the one fuse would defeat the purpose of having fuses
check to see that one is not a cigarette lighter but an aux power outlet for phone charger or light etc

Power Point on 97 Ford F150 does not work. Cig lighter does work. Based on fuse schematic they both appear to run off the same fuse. Is this correct? If so, what might the problem be?

The owners manual lists :

Cigar lighter / DTC plug :Cab fuse panel Fuse #3, 25 A
Aux Power Point : Engine compartment fuse # 10, 25 A

2005 ford f150 cigar lighter not working

1. Check the fuse #41 in the cab fuse panel.
If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

2. Are you using a device ( MP3 player, GPS, etc ) to test that it is not working, or a meter ?
- Could be the fuse in the tip of the DC adapter for the device is blown.

2006 F150 The Power port on the dash does not work. Cannot seem to locate the fuse. Operators manual is not clear enough. I have located the fuse panel and checked all the fuses other than the relays

Ford calls them power points, if you are not talking about the one just above the ash tray ( that is the cigar lighter ).

Instrument panel power point ( to the right of the radio / HVAC center panel ) : Fuse # 39
Cigar lighter : Fuse # 41

There is also a power point in the rear of the SuperCrew & SuperCab cab configurations, and if installed, there can also be a power point in the overhead console ( think that is the rail system )

Radio and cigarette lighter won't work 1996 Ford Ranger

Read your manual .It tells you were the fuses are.. If you use a test light,the terminal at the bottom of the lighter socket is positive and the barrel is ground.Don,t touch the two,or you will need another fuse. The fuse panel is on the left end of the dash.The cigar is #17 and radio is # 20

Cigarette lighter not working, already changed fuse

Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.
