Can you replace a 15 amp with a 25 amp fuse?

No. By using a higher amperage fuse, you allow more dangerous current to pass through the wires. The fuse would not be able to do its job: protecting the circuit.

How do you repair or replace a cigarette lighter that does not work?

location number of the fuseFirst check your fuses. If that isn't the problem try this: take a small flat head screw driver and gently bend the two prongs out a little bit. They are used to hold the lighter in place so that it will operate properly. If your lighter works with the key off remove the fuse first. As for replacing the lighter there are two wires connected on the back side you'll need to remove them. On some lighters you will have to unscrew the outer body to remove the lighter others have a nut that has to be removed. Access to the back side of the lighter is always a pain and how you gain access depends on the make, model and year. I you.

I had a cigarette lighter that didn't work. I checked the fuse and it looked completely fine. I took it to an auto electric shop and the problem turned out to be a FUSE! He said there may have been a very small crack that couldn't be seen. Anyway, I would recommend replacing any fuse with a new one even if the current fuse looks good. You can't go wrong for a buck or two. Good Luck.

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.

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 http://www.mediafire.com/?xgh2ucexzld 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!!!

How do you change a cigarette lighter in a Dodge Dakota?

go to wal-mart and buy a replacement lighter. unplug the fuse for the lighter. reach behind the lighter and remove the two wires that are connected to it. unscrew the whole assembly (you will see how it works when you look at the replacement one...it's pretty simple) and install the new one. re-install the fuse and light 'em up.

The installation process goes as follows:

a) Sitting in the driver's seat, remove the upper dash molding. It's one part that goes from the A/C outlet on the left, all the way around the radio on the right. It can be removed my gently pulling toward you. Start in the upper left corner and pop the clips all the way around. Note that you may need to put the key in to take the truck in neutral so you can clear the steering column when removing.

b) Open and "drop" the glove box door. Don't remove it all the way... Just open it, and push in the left and right sides to unlatch it.

c) If you have an ashtray, remove it. Great opportunity to empty it too. ;-)~

d) Unbolt the lower dash panel under the steering column. Be careful with wiring so you don't set off the airbag! There will be 3 bolts on the bottom and two on top, to the left and right of the steering column,

e) Start unbolting the dash panel over the center console. Note that it's best to start on the right by the glove box. NOTE: If you have an ashtray, you'll see two bolts at the back of the ashtray bay. There's no need to remove those.

f) Before removing the assembly, it's best to remove the wire and check (with an electrical tester) to see if you're getting a clean 12V+.

Even though the lighter or accessory may not be working, I find that Dodge lighters are prone to gunking up. As many as I've seen that weren't working, I've never actually had to replace an assembly. It's almost always a wiring issue cause by turning the lighter or accessory when plugging it in, so...

If you don't get anything when testing the wire, pull on it and straighten it out. Give it a good shake and check it again. Even though YOU'VE ALREADY CHECKED IT, check the fuse again. It's number 15 in the fuse box on the left of the dash, inside the cab. Even if it tests as good, remove it and put it back in a few times. If it looks "unclean" clean the contacts with an eraser (both sides) and insert it again. Check the wire again. If you still don't get anything, it's not the lighter. You need to take the care in and have it checked.

If you do get 12V, it may be the assembly or the lighter itself.

Lighter: Visually inspect the lighter. If the nipple is recessed and worn, it's probably going to be the lighter. To test, insert an accessory (making sure you've reconnected the wire and put the fuse back), put your key in the ignition and turn backward. You should get power.

If you get power, but less than 12V, grab a pencil. Turn off the car and remove fuse 15. Stick the eraser end into the lighter to it sits on the nipple in the center of the back of the assembly. Spin in between your finders to clean the nipple till shiney. Use your electrical meeter to test for power level. You should get 12V now.

If you don't, it's the assembly, and it'll need to be replaced.

g) Pop out the assembly by pushing in the 2 retention nibs and pop in the new one.

Once you're done, read these directions in reverse to put everything back together, and should be all set. :)

How do you replace the cigarette lighter in a 93 Honda Prelude?

The best way to get to it is to take out the center consel. It seems like a hassle but its not that bad. I had to take it all out when I put in a new CD player. The trickiest part is getting to the screw that holds the shift boot cover to the consel. Once that stuff is out of the way, everthing will be easier to get to.
