The wiring behind the lighter or check the voltage in the socket itself. The center is positive and the side, of the socket, is negative. New replacement sockets are readily available at auto parts stores.

How do i fix my lighter port on my 98 lincoln towncar first and secondery one

First check your fuses using a test light. If all of the fuses are OK, the next step would be to take the test light and touch the center of the lighter socket to see if you have current. If you do touch the side of the lighter with the test light and the clip part of the test light on a hot connection, this way you can see if the ground is working. If the light lights the ground is good. If you had no current check to make sure wire is connected to the lighter. If the wire is coneccted and no current unplug the wire and check just the wire, if you have current then the connection or the lighter itself is bad. If you have no current at the wire you will have to find the break in the wire or run a new wire.

Power windows & lighter wont work but fuses are good

first what year is the car? now check the fuses with a volt meter . if the fuse is good i would check the back of the cig.lighter center connector for 12 volts and the side of the lighter for a good ground.if all is good the lighter is bad very common. next the windows, i would go to the window relays and check for (2) powers and a good ground.i have seen both motors go bad at the same time. need to remove door panels and check the voltage at the motor.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work.  Tried replacing fuse, but fuse is ok.  How do you remove the front centre dashbaord panel to gain access to cigarette lighter wiring on a 2005 Jeep cherokee ?

before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

Cigarette lighter won't work fuse ok lighter base ok

I would put a red volt meter lead on the middle and a the black lead on the outside. If it checks above 12 vols, the lighter itself is bad. If no voltage is present, you have to check all the positive wires back to the battery. If those are all working, you have a bad ground.
