Sounds to me like there is a dead short somewhere in the system, I would take it to an electrical appliance repair shop and they can fix it. If there are none in your town then look on the internet for one in your state so you won't have to send it very far to get it fixed.

Ford fiesta 1.2 zetec 2012 as soon as you plug anything in cigarette lighter socket it blows 20amp cartridge fuse f30 must be a short carnt find any wire colours from fuse box to trace, not in manual.


Maybe something wrong with cigar lighter socket? The top wire is voltage, bottom is ground for cigar lighter. If the voltage circuit was shorted to ground, it would blow the fuse w/o anything plugged in. If the component your plugging into the cigar lighter is drawing too much, it will blow the fuse.

How do you get to and replace fuse in power cord for rand McNally 710 gps


Deborah, most of the time the fuse is in the cigarette lighter. The end unscrews. However, if that fuse blew, you may have wiring that has shorted. Much more common to blow you lighter fuse, in the car. Happens with plugging in and turning the "lighter" body, and shorting the lighter socket.

My 12v cigarette lighter socket keeps blowing fuses on my Renault Modus.


First step would be to use a bright flashlight and examine the socket (receptacle) closely for the cause of the short. You may be able to remove it. If the fuse blows when you try to use the cigarette lighter, the plug lighter element may be faulty and need to be replaced. These lighters are pretty standard and you could try one from another car that you know works properly to help diagnose.

2006 jetta, i have a 20amp fuse that blows that is not labeled? it is the only one not labeled in the owners manual. how do i figure out what it is for? thanks!


Check if there is something plugged into a power socket or cigar lighter. if so remove it and se if the fuse stops blowing. If all the sockets seem fine, then plug something you know that works into one and if it does not work, then the fuse is for the cigar lighter/12v socket.
Good luck

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

My cigar lighter fuse #12 on 2002 F250 (super duty) just started blowing. It just started today. Evrytime I put a new fuse in, it blows. Coincidently, it is raining today. What is the easiest way to find...


Is anything plugged into the lighter? If so take it out. If it still blows, check inside the plug, if it looks ok, disconnect the wires to the lighter socket, the socket may be shorted.

When i plug the lighter radio fuse blows up


Hello Javedkr.
You probably have a short in the lighter that is causing the fuse to blow.
Fairly common problem. Sometimes the whole assembly will need to be replaced as the socket or the lighter may be causing it.
