CHECK THE FUESES IN THE FUSE BOX FIRST WITH A TESTER. THEN CHECK THE WIRE. ALSO THERE MIGHT BE AN IN LINE FUSE WERE THEY MIGHT BE LINK TOGETHER.

You might be pulling too much power through the cigarette lighter. Also the cigarette lighter may grounding out for some reason or another. If the car has an aftermarket stereo, whoever installed it may have miswired it.

Unless Peugot has gone through the trouble of placing an inverter to convert the batteries DC to AC (highly unlikely), the cigarette lighter would be DC.

The actual lighter is just a coil of metal that is specifically designed to provide enough resistance to electricity that when it is passed through it heats up, similar to the design of an incandescent light bulb. It's not storing electricity it's just resisting it enough to cause it to heat up.

Of course. That's what an electric fire does, and a cigarette lighter, a toaster, a hair drier, an electric oven, a light bulb. All involve passing an electric current through a wire to make it hot.

Yes! You can buy trickle chargers that work through the cigarette lighter.

AnswerThe cigarette lighter does not have a relay. It does however have a fuse. It may use the same fuse as the radio. If all fuses are good, suspect the lighter itself is bad. Try your lighter in a know good lighter receptacle. If it works there, then suspect the lighter receptacle in your car is bad.My Haynes repair manual for model years 1990 through 1993 states that the cigarette lighter relay is found in the left end of the dashboard below the PGM-FI relay.

I just removed my cigarette lighter from my 1994 Saturn SW1. 1. I took off the panel on the driver's side. (the other side is where the fuse box is.) 2. in the hole where the panel was I disconnected the back of the cigarette lighter (just pull it off. 3. My Saturn has a light connected to the lighter so you can see the lighter in the dark. There is a flap you push down and then you can pull the light off. 3. I got something to put inside the cigarette lighter to get it to twist (it's a screw on.) 4. After you screw it off collect the pieces. My car had four: - Cigarette Lighter - The piece on the back that I screwed off - The piece that held the light in place - The plastic piece (mine is orange) that the light illuminates through. Then put it back together in reverse.

If you are getting power in the socket--replace heating element If you are getting power to the socket, but not through it--replace socket and element

No, the broken filament breaks the connection which electricity needs to complete the circuit.

The static electricity charges the LED light making it either lighter or darker depending on the negative or positive charge that flows through the metal gate.

smoke comes through the filter on the cigarette and into your lungs

Approximately ten amps available at the lighter's socket. Ohm's Law thus gives 12V x 10A = 120 Watts...

The relay is up inside the dash on the left (driver side) end. One can reach it from below with appropriate acrobatics. Refer to this link for more details: http://www.justanswer.com/honda/33lmk-cigarette-lighter-doesn-t-work-fuse-fine-relay.html This article also goes through troubleshooting so it will be useful for you all the way around.

You can cut a washer with the OD of the bezel and the ID of the lighter. Install the washer on the lighter, place the lighter into the bezel hole, place another washer on the back side of the bezel and then screw on the lighter retainer sleeve. It is all easy to do. The bezel comes off with a couple of screws at the bottom. If you need help sizing the washer, I can make you one. fostermachine@aol.com

No. The air in a dryer is around 90-170 degrees not hot enough to ignite a lighter. The Myth Busters actually did an episode about this where they ran a lighter through a dryer for an extended period of time. They also put a lighter in a toaster oven to find out what temperature it would explode at, it did not happen until it reached 350 degrees.

on my 95 wrangler i checked the fuse box under the dash and hood, and no luck, all the fuses were fine... so i followed the wires through the body and under the hood. i found that the hot wire went behind the battery and had a fuse spliced into it before going to the fuse box this fuse was fried. i replaced it with a 15 and my cigarette lighter now works

This is in the rear compartment fuse block, located in the trunk of the vehicle. Access the fuse block through the trunk panel on the driver's side of the rear cargo area. It will be fuse number 20 that needs to be replaced for the cig lighter.

An electron is electricity as we know it. Electrons flow through a conductable element and that is electricity.

Yes, electricity can flow through metal.

The cigarette lighter fuse for a 2004 - 2007 MALIBU is in a fuse panel in the trunk on the driver's side. It should be accessible through a small door in the side panel of the trunk. Should be a 20 amp. small blade fuse. DO NOT PUT IN A FUSE RATED FOR MORE THAN 20 amps. The wiring harness can't handle it.

Electricity can go through anything if you apply enough pressure (volts). Lightning is electricity and it can jump for miles through the air.

it means that electricity can flow through the switch

Not well ... its an insulator.
