Cigarette Lighter broken on Ford Escape

Hello!

I don't smoke - so being without a working cigarette lighter didn't bother me. However, I just got a GPS system - and it needs to be plugged into the CL to get powered-up.

This is on a 2006 Ford Escape. There is only one lighter. What can I do to fix it? If I just need to replace the fuse, how do I do that & where is it located?

Thanks!
Ford Fan

Fuse box should be located either in the glove compartment, or to your left below stearing wheel. Also check fuses under hood, should be located next to the battery. Double check the GPS, most of them will nox plug into cigarette lighter plug. It could damage the GPS.

In which spot does the cigarette lighter fuise go in the fuise box in a 2008 Ford escape xlt

If you do not have a blown fuse. Look at this link and it will tell you what size fuse goes where. If you are missing a fuse you can replace it with the right size fuse. I do not see cigarette lighter on the list.

1995 camry wagon cigarette lighter not working

start with a test light and check for power at the center of the cigarette lighter socket. If power is good, then check for ground at side of lighter socket.
If no power, run wire from power wire of lighter to power wire of stereo, thus tapping the power directly and bothering to trace out where the open int he circuit may be.
