Fix cigarette lighter on ford 350?
try replacing the fuse. i had the same problem after trying to use a phone charger. you have to put it in perfectly or the negative and positive contacts touch and blow the fuse. it wasn't designed for power on the old ones. i have a 93. it does work but you have to put it in directly with out twisting. kind of a pain. try it

if you mean that there is no power.. look in the fuse block there is one fuse labeled lighter is most likely burned out
1. Check the fuse. 2. Check the wire behind the lighter plug, in case it has fallen off. Disnonnect the negative battery cable if you have to fuss with the wiring at all. Also…, if the lighter has been heavily used, the element may simply be burned out or broken--get a new one from your parts store.

did you try the fuse?
one solution is to check the 2 prongs in the lighter unit..sometimes they get pushed apart and dont hold the lighter in place to heat up...push them back together and it shoul…d work fine, but dont push them in 2 far or they wont let go of the lighter once its heated up.
Before you replace the whole lighter, check the fuse. If it is not located in the fuse box, it may be just outside the fuse box under the dash.
probably a blown fuse, check the fuses.
Well it's very simple you take it in and get someone to fix it for you!

What's wrong with it? Well, I'll try... First, I'll assume you've checked the fuse (you have, haven't you?) Look into the socket of the lighter and make sure the center cont…act is clean. If not, use a rubber eraser and some electrical contact cleaner to clean it up. Use a meter to see if there is 12 volts to the center contact. If not, then gain access to the back of the lighter and make sure the wires (both the "hot" lead and the ground wire) are solidly attached. If they are, make sure the ground wire is going to a solid ground and is firmly attached. Then, check the wire coming from the fuse block. If either wire is burned or broken, repair or replace it. If you get a good 12 volts to the socket, and have a good ground connection, replace the socket.
