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

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.

The flint could be broken, or worn, or it could be out of fuel. Disposables are made of thin metal, not meant to be together very long. You can replace the flint or pour in more fuel into the bottom of the Zippo.
