Check and make sure there is nothing actually in them. A paper clip or coin may have fallen in one of them causing the fuse to blow as soon as you put a new one in

VW T28 84 TDI Transporter cigarette lighter not working


There are at least two reasons why this could be happening. Firstly (and this has happened to me) there could be a foreign body dropped inside the lighter socket, preventing electrical contact. Have a look and remove. Secondly the fuse to the cigarette lighter may be blown. Beware! Fuses do not blow without a reason. If blown, it could be that a conducting foreign body may have been dropped into the socket. Remove the fuse cover and locate the appropriate fuse. DO NOT REPLACE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE FUSE. Should be no more than 20 amps. If the fuse blows again, try the lighter on another vehicle. ( A good friend??) If that blows the fuse too then the lighter is faulty with a low resistance. If not then the lighter circuit on the vehicle needs to be checked by an auto electrician. Good luck!
Cheers, Don.

2000 Nissan Frontier Cigarette lighter not working while I use tire compresser using,


Tire compressor probably draws too much current for the socket. Are you sure it is a cigarette lighter socket? Some sockets are just to provide accessories 12v. Did a cigarette lighter come with this socket? True cigarette lighter sockets are generally fused at 25 or 30 Amps

Cigarette lighter doesn't work


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

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a 1999 toyota camry and what could be potential reasons why it doesnt work


A good thing to check to see if it's just a fuse is try your external mirrors to see if they move, they work off the same fuse as the lighter.

If it is a fuse, and if you are in Australia then the fuse box is next to the drivers right knee area, In America, then next to their left knee. There is also a fusible link built into some cigarette lighters, mine has one. When it blew, the auto electrician was able to resolder the link and get me going again until I could buy a new lighter.

Hope this helps.

1993 Mercury Tracer cigarette lighter


I assume that you tried the cigarette lighter itself and didnt rely solely that the charger was working properly. When you tightened the ring on caseing did you see that the wire connected on the back of the lighter was properly attatched, sometimes a good connection loosens up especially if caseing was found to be loose.. Well assuming it was properly connected you could test the circuit with either a multimeter or 12 volt test light if power is found at connection then you problem is definetly the cigarette lighter assembly itself.. I hope this was helpful...Let me know I would appreciate it
