What causes the cigarette lighter in a car to be able to light cigarettes but not supply voltage to accessories?

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.

Can electricity be used to make heat?

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.

Where is the fuse relay for a cigarette lighter in 1991 Honda accord not under hood and not underdash and radio works not on any diagrams either?

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.

How to replace a cigarette lighter in a Saturn L-Series?

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.
