Either the push in part of the lighter is bad a fuse has blown or the actual socket has burned out. check the fuse first if it is good then get behind the lighter and check to see if there is power to the lighter. if there is then replace the lighter assembly while your there. hope this helps

Cigarette lighter in car

The lighter in a Chevy Lumina can get lost easily if you routinely pull it from the socket to plug in electronic devices like GPS systems, cell phone chargers and laptops. If so, you need to replace it.

Penny dropped into the cigarette lighter of my 2008 saturn astra. I got the penny out, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work

hi,

there must have been a weak connection somewhere in the line.
use a volt meter to trace from the lighter to the fuse box.
I have also seen the wire connection go bad during a short in the back of the fuse box itself where the wire goes in.
follow the 12 volts and you will find your problem.

How to open the hood on a 2005 suzuki forenza with a dead battery

I know this isn't a standard "fix" but what we do is to use a cigarette lighter to cigarette lighter jump start.

While this type of "jumper" doesn't work very well to start a vehicle, it does get you power enough to open the hood and other electronic openers.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak

Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

I have a 2005 town and country minivan,i can not find the fuse for the cigarette lighter and i don't understand the abbreviations on the fuse box panel can you please help.

the cigarette lighter fuse may be marked cig.usually it is clearly marked on the fuse panel cover.if all else fails check all the fuses with a test light.sometimes the cigarette lighter element burns out and doesn`t work.this is the part that you light the cigarette with and the element can be changed by it self.it unscrews from the handle portion when you pull up on the sliding part and turn the element portion.
