For the cigarette lighter: 1 First check if the lighter element is good. Use a volt meter to see if there is voltage inside the cavity. If there is voltage, get a new element. 2. The fuse box is under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the cover and check fuse #10, it will be a 15 amp fuse. Replace it if blown, if not there is probably a broken wire someplace. Probably on the lighter cavity (receptical). Joedi
Also you need to be sure the fuse is working in your car before replacing the lighter.
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.
How do I fix my cigarette lighter when fuse is good
the ACC fuse powers the lighter, the door locks and the trunk hatch. It is a 20amp fuse.
Just pull all the fuses out and check them. Replace the bad one. that's not really going to help.... remove the cigarette lighter by pulling the trim off the radio there is a fusable link on the cigarette lighter socket itself. you can replace the socket or try to replace the fuseable link its a peice of 14 gauge aluminum wire....
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.
Check the fuse. If you use a phone charger or any other aux device in the cigarette lighter most likely blew it.
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.
its the fuse
Check your fuses in your fuse panel usually that is what is wrong when cigarette lighters and radios quit working.
Check fuse nr 34 under hood!
First thing to check would be the fuse.
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.
Get a fuse tester test it on the inside of the plug itself of it lights up theirs current so you might just have to replace the plug entirely
it is most likely not working due to a blown fuse
Check the 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
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.
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.
A inoperable cigarette lighter can be a significant problem and safety hazard, as the lighter negates the need to fiddle with a small hand-held lighter will driving. Repairing the lighter in a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier calls for inspecting a number of different components to the lighter and attempting to repair each one at the sign of damage or failure. If no steps can fix the cigarette lighter, it can be easily replaced with a few easy steps.Difficulty:ModerateInstructionsThings You'll NeedScrewdriverWire cuttersWire strippersElectrical tapeNeedle-nose pliersWrench setCheck the Lighter1 Purchase a replacement cigarette lighter at an auto part store, matching the original.2 Push the new lighter deep into the cigarette lighter socket.3 Inspect the inside coil on the new cigarette lighter after 30 seconds.

Strip the ends of the original wire with wire strippers and connect the same thickness and gauge of wire into the section. Cover the new connection with electrical tape.4 Push the cigarette lighter into the socket and inspect it after 30 seconds, seeing if the coils inside the lighter are red and warm. If they are, the problem was the damaged wiring.Check the Fuse1 Locate the fuse box on the side of the instrument panel and remove the fuse panel cover.2 Inspect the diagram on the back of the fuse panel cover and locate the correct fuse for the cigarette lighter.3 Remove the appropriate fuse with needle-nose pliers and inspect it. If the metal bridge inside the fuse is broken, replace it with a new fuse.
