It could be the fuse, a bad connection or the lighter itself. You'll need to find out which it is. First, start by checking for voltage at the back of the lighter. Use a volt meter or automotive test light to check for voltage at the wire as it enters the socket. If there is no voltage there, start tracking back to the next connector. Keep going until you find a place where there is voltage, then, with a little inductive logic, you'll know what to fix.

How do you replace a cigarette lighter for a 2000 Honda Civic?

First of all, be sure to check for a blown fuse. Then, you will have to pull the ashtray and expose the lighter charging coil, which is the round metal piece that the actual lighter rests in. Disconnect your battery, and then disconnect the wiring harness clip from the back of your lighter, then you twist the lighter counterclockwise to unseat it for removal. Installation is the reversal of these steps.
