Re: 2004 Jaguar X-type cigarette lighter fuse
First check your accessory fuses under the dash. You may have a blown fuse. If the fuses are fine, and you have a voltage meter, check to see if you have power to the lighter. You may have a problem with the wiring to the lighter.

Sometimes the lighter has a small built in fuse. Get a test light and check the center pin of the socket, it it does not have power, take the socket out and check the wire, it the wire has power, the fuse is bad. Sometimes you have to buy the whole socket to get the fuse, but I done know about your particular socket on a Jaguar.
On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.
If there is no power to the sockets, changing the bulb wont correct the problem. Check all fuses. Check for current to the tailight. Check for ground to the tailight. Repair as nesessary. Check cigarette lighter filament. It may be faulty. Check inside cigarette lighter socket. It may have a foreign material in it causing the short.
part of the rear of the cigarette lighter is a built in fuse which blows when shorted. Fix is a new cigarette lighter are a lil soldier acrodd the terminals. Be carefull not to use the earth one though.
The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse box on the driver side of the car under the dash. It is a blue 15 amp fuse. When you open this fuse box, you will see some larger relays with 4 rows of fuses below it. The fuse you are looking for is the first fuse in the 2nd row. in the 2002 X-type, that fuse is a little taller than the other ones.
