ZX2 Cigarette Lighter Fuse . The cigarette lighter fuse on an Escort ZX2 is located in a secondary fuse panel just above the main passenger compartment fuse panel to left o…f the driver's left shin when sitting. You can only see it by getting your head down below the driver's seat level. It is black & about 3/4" x 2" in face area and can be slid forwards off its plastic mounting rails with a modicom of force. Once slid off, it is then easy to remove its cover and replace the "CIGAR" fuse, typically 20A. Cheers. BM, Ont. Canada
Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a 1998 Chevy Malibu check all fuses in the fuse box and can't seem to locate?
The lighter is often fused with another accessory such as the radio or horn, etc. If it is still not clear take a shortcut and check the power to the lighter with a 12 volt te…ster (about $4.00). There is a center power lead which should be 12 volts then a ground next to it. Often the well (center)is bad or the ground is loose. Under the hood on the driver's side is a black box labeled "FUSE RELAY CENTER". Using the round knob, open this box and remove the cover. The cigarette lighter and aux power use fuse #34 in this box. If your box does not have the fuse map on the inside of the lid, face the box from the driver's side of the car with the windshield at your right. There will be several rows of fuses and relays. In the lower left corner of the fuse box as you face it, will be a large green 30 amp fuse in the first row. There will be a large orange 40 amp fuse in the next row. The third row will have slots but no fuses. The next row will have a mini size green 30 amp fuse on the left with a yellow mini-size 20 amp fuse right next to it. This yellow mini-sized 20 amp fuse is the cigarette lighter fuse. If this fuse slot is empty, put a mini -size 20 amp fuse into it for the lighter and auxiliary power plug to work. Just above this fuse in the next row is a large grey square (a relay unit).

Did you ever find out where the cigarette lighter fuse was located on the 98 Camry? I have a 00 Camry and im looking for my cig. lighter fuse. The fuse is in a fuse box locat…ed under the drivers side of the dashboard to the left of the steering column. If the fuse is good and the cigarette lighter still does not work, the wire attaching at the cigarette lighter itself has probably burned or broken off necessitating the lighter be changed. It's a comon problem.
It's under the hood in the engine compartment power distribution box, Viewing this box opened, it's the third one from the cut off corner, farthest from the circuit breakers. …It may be labeled "Cig Illumination" and it's 20 amp. Have this as an on-going problem with mine. It also controls the power take-off port in the console and the power seats. My seats work fine but the lighter doesn't, so mine isn't the fuse. Could also be a bad socket or wiring.

I just recently found a second fuse box on my 2002 ford escort zx2 it is located to the outside of the driver side dash above and a little to the right of the first lower fuse… box located just inside the drivers door above the fuel shut off switch. However, I was actually lying down with my head on the floorboard before I found it. It houses audio, fog light, cig. lighter etc.. I never knew it was there until the other day. Hope this helps.
