Lighter in ThunderbirdThe lighter should be in the center console.. Open the console arm rest and remove two screws that are located under the arm rest that hold the back part of the console.Then lift up on the console and pull it forward and then it should lift up past the gear shift.. after that.. unplug the plug under the console the goes to the lighter and the illumination bulb.. this will let you take the entire console out for easy access.. The rest is a piece of cake..

The fuse should be located in fuse box under dash on driver side. If the fuse is not blown,then you will have to get a new cig lighter, cheapest way would be your local junkyard...

It is situated behind the pales surrounding the cigarette lighter. Simply clip the panel off from the sides and the fuse will be visible at the back. This will come off with ease. Simply replace fuse and reclip panel back on. Will take no more than 10 mins to change.

you should check the fuse first. you can buy a replacement lighter and socket for about $10 at walmart or auto zone, try just swapping the element first, if that doesn't work you will have to replace the socket also
