Can not get the socket out to test from fuse in to it.I have 2 in the truch but one on lower is a power socket which is ok. But on on the switch on side giving me fits. Please help.

Hello,

The cigarette lighter outlet can be replaced by follow this process:

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
Pull the cigar lighter knob and element out of the cigar lighter receptacle base,
Note the position of the rectangular retaining base.
Use a pair of external snap ring plier to disengage the mount, by gently rocking back and forth.
Pull out the base enough to disconnect the wire harness.
