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.
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.
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
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)
you could have some faulty wiring. take your dash board off and see if any wires are frayed or broken
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
It could be a burnt out fuse. Also, did the vehicle come with the cigarette lighter or was it purchased after you bought the car? I've noticed the cheap-os from gas stations usually dont work. I sometimes think it has to do with all these smoking bans!
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.
there is a small plug on the back of the lighter, you have to take the lighter out, it could have vibrated loose
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.
bad fuse... always pull, NEVER twist the plug...
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
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.
If it's not in the fuse box, then could be under the driver side left dash area.
Vibration could cause it to jump as from a minor earthquake or washing machine.
to the right of the cigarette lighter ther are 2 buttons that should be lit up if their not press both!
i guess it could influence other family members to smoke and also substances form the cigarette could cause family members to develop asthma etc
1 cigarette could theoretically be enough considering that second hand smoke can cause cancer by itself.
No, you could overload the wiring and start a fire.
