Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport that I recently purchased. I find that none of the cigarette lighters work and I have purchased a fridge and also a tire compressor that plugs into the cigarette lighters. I went out this morning and I have a flat tire on the rear and I am approximately 30 miles from the nearest repair shop. I have ordered Fix-A-Flat from Walmart that will be delivered to my house here on Friday but I'd still like to find fuses to see if it's a fuse that I can either fix the fuse or replace the cigarette lighters. I feel like it's the fuse and I took the top off the fuse box and I don't see a picture of a cigarette lighter. I also have fuses coming from Walmart next week. I'm 73 years old and not helpless but I don't like to be in this town without any friends or relatives without my vehicle. Can you help me?

Fuse number 1 Joyce on the inside fuse box. Normally, you will find that there is a diagram on the lid of the fuse box. It is a 20 amp fuse. If you click on this link, the second image will show you the fuses. Unfortunately that website is gone, but the image remains. I'll see if I can find you a manual for the vehicle.

    You might like to invest in one of these Joyce. An accessory socket with a wire an alligator clips that you can clip to the battery. My Google search query was;

    power socket with battery clips

Apparently others on the internet reported the same fuse issue, and found two fuse box locations.

See illustration at internet link below for 15A fuse to see if it matches yours.

I had the same problem. The fuse for the accessory plugs are not in the fuse box above the drivers feet it is in the group of fuses just above it. The owners manual describes it as location #16. It is a 15v fuse.

did you use a test light this would be the primary source for an accessory not to work unless the wires to the connector on the back side of the lighter itself has come undone or it may very well be the ground to it you need to visually inspect it a mirror may be of assistance to have a look if you cannot bend under neath the dash maby you can remove the ashtray to better view it

None of the cigarette lighters in my Mitsubishi Montero sport 2003 will work.. Diffuses under the steering will buy the break are good.. And so are the fuses under the hood as far as I can tell..


Replace the fuse anyway! Check the contacts for the fuse and check the flow of electricity with a volt meter.

2001 Montero Sport cigarette lighter interior light will not turn off


No its not normal and yes that could drain the battery.
I would think the light around the ignition key lock would be on too.
Probably a courtesy light problem - there is a timer somewhere that turns those lights off after you close the doors.
If it is just the light for the lighter you could cut that wire.

Why does the starter fuse on my 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport continues to burn out


I think this happened to my 03 montero sport. The problem was the cigarette lighter(it is on the same fuse as the ignition). It wasnt connected correctly and was shorting out the fuse. Since i dont smoke, I simply disconnected the cigarette lighter completely.
