bad fuse, loose or disconnected wire, bad cigar lighter base. Try replacing the 20 amp fuse marked "locks" in the inside fuse panel located on the passengers side.

If its blowing fuses, then you have a short in that circuit somewhere. Its going to be a tuff process of elimintation to try and find the short, but it will need to be dont to correct your problem. The best place to start is your cigarette lighter. The lighter could have a short, or the terminals on the back side of it could be shorted, or the most common problem, a penny has gotten into the cigar lighter.

Why won't your cigarette lighter come out?

If your car cigarette lighter won't pop out, it may mean that either the lighter itself is bad, the fuse is blown, or the wiring is bad. Testing the lighter is rather easy. You could use an ohmmeter to test between the center of the coil and the metal jacket. If nothing happens on the meter, then the lighter is bad. You could test the socket by plugging something else into it. Then from there, if the socket is dead, then you should try looking for its fuse.However, if you mean it is stuck and you cannot pull it out, then the socket or the lighter is broken, or there is an object or substance between the lighter and the socket. It could be anything from spilled drink or rust, to deliberate vandalism.

The 25 amp fuse blows and the radio clock goes off when you try to use the cigarette lighter The power to the lighter and radio is good cannot see any obvious wiring short What could the problem be?

The lighter itself is toast. There is a short inside so when you click it in too much current is drawn and it blows the fuse. The coil inside has a short.
