Check the fuse. If you use a phone charger or any other aux device in the cigarette lighter most likely blew it.
How do I fix my cigarette lighter when fuse is good
Check the outlet by plugging in a 12v accessory (radar, gps, phone charger). If it has power, then the problem is the lighter itself. The are only a few dollars.
On the 2004 it is in the trunk on the Drivers side.
Check with a test light very carefully so as not to burn out the fuse...see if you have power at the plug behind the lighter at the connector harness, if so then replace the heat element, common on all lighters.
Did you check for a blown fuse?
try the fuse
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.
its the fuse
Also you need to be sure the fuse is working in your car before replacing the lighter.
Check the fuse.
First thing to check would be the fuse.
Check fuse nr 34 under hood!
The lighter will no work if the lightbulb in the ash tray is blown. I changed the lightbulb in my del sol, and the lighter started working.
Cigarette lighter not work?I read in my car owner manual, and it tells me that the reason why a cigarette lighter will stop working is because the heating mechanism is burned out. I'm not sure exactly what it is or what is a definite answer for why it would burn out. But one reason was given. It said if you take the lighter out before it pops up, that it would cause the heating mechanism to burn out faster.
it is most likely not working due to a blown fuse
the ACC fuse powers the lighter, the door locks and the trunk hatch. It is a 20amp fuse.
check your fuse, if fuse is good most likely the socket, or if the lighter is used often it can also fail.
Check to see that noone has used it for a coin holder. It is fused.
Probably just the fuse or it could be a lose wire under the dash
Is cigarette lighter not working also? If so then probably a fuse blown by shorting the cigarette lighter socket. Fuse is located under glove box passenger side front (RHD version). It's not easy to get to and will probably be the last one you try.
Check the fuse first. If the fuse is good, check to see if you have 12 volts at the lighter. If so replace the lighter. If not check the wring. Best to just replace the entire lighter assembly.
Fuse no 23 20 amps
The normal cause is a blown fuse.
