The Cigarette lighter socket needs replaced. Is this an easy task? Also , can the new socket be just a standard or special socket for the Mercedes? Thanks. Ed
If you are getting power in the socket--replace heating element If you are getting power to the socket, but not through it--replace socket and element
Replace: Fuse Socket Element
There is no cigarette lighter. Great for me because I never smoked
The socket is
Usually you unscrew the backing part on the lighter that holds it to the console.
Gain access to the rear of the socket. Unplug the wires from the rear. Unscrew the housing and the socket will come out the front.
Just pull all the fuses out and check them. Replace the bad one. that's not really going to help.... remove the cigarette lighter by pulling the trim off the radio there is a fusable link on the cigarette lighter socket itself. you can replace the socket or try to replace the fuseable link its a peice of 14 gauge aluminum wire....
The cigarette lighter / pwer socket is a constant hot socket. In most cars you can use this power socket at all times. It is best to remove anything(except the cigarette lighter) from this socket when the car is off.
To change Honda jazz cigarette lighter socket fuse you need to disconnect the 2P connectors from the cigarette lighter (A) and cigarette lighter light (B) (if equipped).Inspect the connector terminals to be sure they are all making good contact.
use the cigarette lighter as as a socket
This is usually caused by a bad socket. When you put the lighter in it grounds out the positive and negative wires. Change out the socket and lighter and it will work fine.
