What fuses protect the cigarette lighter - power point outlets in a Ford Windstar?

1996 Owners Manual, page 344 indicates:

* Fuse #3, named "Dimmer Illumination", 5amp fuse, dash lights, control switch lighting, Cigar lighter light plus a whole bunch more * Fuse #22, named "Rear Cigar/Power Plug", 20amp fuse, rear cigar lighter * Fuse #28, named "Front Cigar lighter", 15amp fuse, front lighter I would expect these fuse designations to be applicable to 1995 - 1998 Windstars.

Best resource is the individual model year Owners Manual- see below For Windstar 1998, the fusepanel is under the driver side and you can replace the miniture fuse with the same rating (20 or 30 amps ???). Please check first that the cigarette lighter is not shorted. Good luck.. Get fuse #28 i/p

Where can you find the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a VT Commodore?

Below the right hand side of the steering wheel. Pop the fuse panel off and it will show all the fuses. Use the tool provided (stuck to the fuse board) to remove the fuses as a process of trial and error till you find the burnt fuse. My guess is that it will be 20 amp.

How to fix Chevy impala cigarette lighter housing?

You will need to remove the ashtray, dash plastic, etc., to get at the back of it. Disconnect your battery ground to be safe. There will be one or two wires on it; remember where they were attached. Unscrew the back of the housing; it threads into itself and may be tight. Putting it together is much easier. Good luck.

Car Fuses and Wiring
Home Electricity

How does a fuse work?

A fuse is a safety device to prevent excess current flowing in an electric circuit. It consists of a thin metal wire of low resistance and low melting point. When an electrical appliance or some other piece of electrical equipment becomes faulty, therefore allowing an excess electric current to flow through its circuit, this causes the wire inside the fuse to melt and thus break the flow of current.

Fuses, by design are a one-time-use protective device - once they are used ("burn out"), they're worthless. That is why homes typically use circuit breakers: a breaker acts similarly to a fuse in that it opens a circuit when excessive current flows, but - because nothing actually melts inside it - it can then be reset without having to be replaced by a new one, as has to be done for a fuse.

If there were no fuse in the circuit, serious damage could be caused to the wiring which feeds the equipment. It could get so hot that it catches on fire, which might start a fire in the building or vehicle in which the electrical equipment is installed.

Where is the cigarette lighter fuse located on a Buick Rendezvous?

This is Fuse 32 under the hood in the fuse box. I had a problem with this fuse as well. I don't smoke so didn't care when I first realized my lighter didn't work, but my check engine light came on and when I took it to get the engine code read, the part they connect to under the dash (ODBII) would not give them a code. I left the store not knowing why my check engine light was on and annoyed there was another problem to fix. After a few hours of troubleshooting with my Dad, we figured out the same fuse that controls the lighters is the same one that powers the OBDII system, and Onstar as well. I hope that info helps someone else. here's the 2004 owners manual Replacing fuse 32 fixed my front cigarette lighter problem as well. I have a 2005 Buick Rendezvous. The fuses are numbered in the owners manual. This fuse is in the fuse box under the hood; not at the passenger side compartment. It is a yellow 20 amp fuse in the middle left area of the fuse box.

How do you wire a cigarette lighter to a Ford Fiesta Mk3?

Hi, what you need to do is first of all buy a cigarette lighter from a car store (just get one of those universal ones) or go to a scarp yard and get one from there, then all you have to do is wire it straight up to your battery! run the cables behind the dash then under your bonet. make sure you secure all the cables so the dont get caught up or melt and short on you engine! If your going to do it that way rather than to wire it into the loom be sure to put an inline fuse in or you'll probalby end up melting the wire!!!
