bad fuse... always pull, NEVER twist the plug...
Most likely the fuse is blown, many cars have the cigar lighter and the radio on the same circut.
The owner's manual does not state a specific fuse for the cigarette lighter, but it worked a few months ago, and now doesn't. Could it be something else?
To give the lighter structural strength, otherwise the plastic case could just crack in your pocket.
you could have some faulty wiring. take your dash board off and see if any wires are frayed or broken
In your fuse panel on the driver's end of the dash (the cover is visible with the driver's door open ) in location # 17 there is a 20 amp fuse for your cigarette lighter and data link connector - check to see if the fuse is blown , also it could be the lighter itself or an electrical connection problem. (Helpfull)
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.
Probably just the fuse or it could be a lose wire under the dash
There are a number of adapters available that work in a cigarette lighter. An individual can find just about any type of converter needed on Amazon. Also available in stores like Best Buy and Walmart.
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.
Yes, it's called a Power Inverter
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 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.
Not that I've ever found. You could probably put one in, if you're handy around electricity.
you could get a radio transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter
If the seat warmer on a 2004 Saturn Vue is not working it could be a problem with the heater element. This element can be found under the seat and will be easier to access from the rear of the seat.
There is a fusebox in the passenger compartment. Check your owners manual, it will tell you how to find it. Thanks for the information... There is no fuse in the owner's manual labeled "Cigarette Lighter"... I assume the cigarette lighter fuse is labeled as something else... Do you know what it is labeled?Could be labelled something like, Accessory, or, Aux. Hard to say. It should be a 15A fuse, so just pull all of the 15A fuses and make sure they aren't fried.
I need to know two things------1--I have a 1991 Dodge Spirit-Where on the fuse panel is the fuse that controls the cigarette lighter i t does not show it oMn the cover?-#-2---my blower stopped working, I get good heat on all settings. What can I check I checked the fuse, and it is good, could I have a loose wire somewhere? Mike
If it's not in the fuse box, then could be under the driver side left dash area.
Either the fuse has blown or there is a burnt connection at the lighter socket. If the fuse is blown, you could be overloading the socket. You should consider putting in an additional socket on a separate fuse.
Certainly could, especially if the bare wires that were connected to the lighter mechanism short out (touch) together. This will cause a dead short and render the car's entire electrical system inoperable.
Yep and its located in either the glove compartment or right rear over the battery. Also in my 1988 325IS the cigarette lighter works to power my electrical devices however when i plug in most/all new devices the stupid thing doesn't work and the reason for this is the alignment of the contacts on the plug-in. Try some of your old devices first and if none work then it could be your fuse. YOUR WELCOME :-D
to the right of the cigarette lighter ther are 2 buttons that should be lit up if their not press both!
There is two things what could be wrong with your lighter. One the wick in the lighter could be damp or you have bought a dull lighter.
An abundance of hydrogen. With enough fuel cells, Saturn could power the Earth for millions of years. There's just the problem of getting it!
