Hi, what you need to do is first of all buy a cigarette lighter from a car store (just get one of those universal ones) or go to a scarp yard and get one from there, then all you have to do is wire it straight up to your battery! run the cables behind the dash then under your bonet. make sure you secure all the cables so the dont get caught up or melt and short on you engine! If your going to do it that way rather than to wire it into the loom be sure to put an inline fuse in or you'll probalby end up melting the wire!!!
When your cigarette lighter fuse is good and there is voltage measured between the fuse's load side to ground (To check this, use a dc voltmeter or a 12v automotive lamp and an automotive lamp socket. Connect one wire to the fuse and the other wire to the chassis of the vehicle the lamp should glow if voltage is present on the fuse terminal.), check the wire between the fuse and cigarette lighter. This wire should be without cut and when the wire is good then check the connector on the cigarette lighter socket for loose connection or corrosion. One more thing is that, make sure that your cigarette lighter fits the cigarette lighter socket because not all cigarette lighters will work on some cigarette lighter sockets.
yes y not you can add a new one just wire it to the bat and fuse it
Smoking is bad for your health. Convert the outlet to adapt it to a CD or MP3 player. These will not kill you.
check the fuse or the ground wire.
You hooked the ground wire to you amp to a hot wire. The hot wire is black and it's the hot wire to the cigarette lighter. I used to be a Ford mechanic and saw this alot and charged people lots of money to fix their Stupid mistake.
If the cigarette lighter is not working and the ACC fuse, inside the car, left of steering wheel, is still good (radio is working), the "fuse" on the back side of the cigarette lighter socket, a brown wire, has blown. Socket needs to be replaced or fixed with a soldering iron and a new wire.
the color of the positive wire should be a bright red color.
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 located 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.
Take the old one out and wire the new one the sam way.
1. blown fuse 2. broken wire from fuse block to lighter 3. bad ground 4. bad lighter
A cigarette lighter is a device to light cigarettes. They are typically electric or gas-powered. Disposable cigarette lighters burn butane gas. Some reusable lighters use butane, while others use lighter fluid which is poured into a cotton wadding. Car cigarette lighters and wall-mounted cigarette lighters are electric. Electric lighters heat a coil of wire, and the cigarette is placed against the heated wire as the smoker puffs. In cars, lighter sockets provide other functionality, and can be used to operate laptops, charge cell phones, play games, watch television, power lights, and more.
I have owned Chevy Volvo and Honda and all use a fuse to allow power to the lighter. Are you sure the wire has not been disconected from the back of the lighter?
You can get a Ford Fiesta stereo wiring diagram at a website called modifiedlife. It also lists all the wire colors for each component that is needed for wiring the stereo.
takethe purple wire and connect it to the orange wire then stick it in the oil the lighter and spark it
Replace the blown fuse, or repair the broken wire.
Probably just the fuse or it could be a lose wire under the dash
For the cigarette lighter: 1 First check if the lighter element is good. Use a volt meter to see if there is voltage inside the cavity. If there is voltage, get a new element. 2. The fuse box is under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the cover and check fuse #10, it will be a 15 amp fuse. Replace it if blown, if not there is probably a broken wire someplace. Probably on the lighter cavity (receptical). Joedi
Causes include blown fuse and broken wire.
wire cutters professional guitarists will use, a cigarette lighter if you smoke is always handy
the lighter colored one
It's the bottle under the bonnet with the cap and a wire on it.
Seeing what the wires are would allow a person to know which wire is which on a 1988 Toyota. It would be helpful to see what the wires are to know what they are for.
Load is too large for the circuit, or there is a short in the wire you are hooking up.
