My cigarette lighter does not work. I've checked fuses under hood. They're OK. Any suggestions? Do not know how to get to under dash fuses.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,
My radio and phone charger worked fine as long as I have had it. Recently I plugged a new type of charger adapter into the cigarette lighter and then the radio and charger both stopped working. I checked the fuse beneath the dash, and it still works fine. The clock still works fine too. How can I fix it, or how much will it cost to fix?
Thanks!

1997 Honda Accord 57,000 miles

I drive a 97 Honda Accord 4 door with roughly 57,000 miles on it.

Heres my problem. I was driving down the road one day and I used my cigarette lighter to light a cigar. About 20 minuites later, my radio stops working and the cigarette lighter went out as well. I pop the hood and I find a missing fuse. I put in a new fuse for that spot. I go back and turn on the radio, and it still doesn't work. The weird thing is my clock still works. Is it a short, I am assuming its an electrical short? How much should I pay to fix it?

Hi there,

you say you found a missing fuse, this wont be the problem, there will be a blown fuse, have a look, if you cant locate it, re post and I will post a pic of the fuse locations.

I meant blown fuse. I checked the fuse and they all tested fine. I assume theres a short there because I beleive my circuit got shorted when the fuse blew the first time around?

Hi there,

The clock uses a separate fuse.

The radio fuse should be underdash and in your case, you better pull the cigar lighter out before putting the new fuse as I suspect it is at fault.

Hi there - i'm having the same problem - I checked all the fuses under the dash and replaced a blown fuse but still no radio or cigarette lighter. Could you give me the row number and position of the relevant fuse? Thanks

Hello,

There is a fuse and a relay that runs the cigarette lighter which both should be checked starting with the fuse.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuse

and

Here is the relay location and fuse panel identification (below)

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
