recently my cigarette lighter does not work anymore, i check my manual for which fuse it was and there was no fuse in that spot but the lighter did work couple weeks ago, and it seems like my whole fuse box is mixed up, nothing is where it should be. any help would be appreciated

Here's the list of fuses and their locations. You should be looking for fuse #18 (20 amp yellow) in the Rear Power Distribution Center. It's marked as "Selectable Power Outlet" in the manual.

do you use the lighter regularly,if so you could have burnt the element out,I see it regularly at my shop.Its because you actually touch your cigarette onto the element and you really shouldnt,it will light purely off the heat off the element

I switched out the fuse #18 with a new one and the lighter still doesn't supply power to my phone charger. Any other things that could cause this? Thanks for your help fellas.

You should use the power in-put, in the center console for any thing that you want to power. It looks just like the lighter input with a cap on it.

Now the cigerette lighter will give power but only when the key is in the on position. Is this the norm since my cigerette power source never worked I am not sure.

I believe this is normal.

Thanks Bailman for the confirmation. I also read on other threads that it is because the power source in the console is directly wired to the car's battery therefore provides power continously regardless if the car is on or not. However the ashtray power source is on a different circuit so when the key is not in the "on" position no power goes to that outlet.

In my center console, the auxiliary 12v plug (Inside the console, not the one inside the ashtray) is not working. Can anyone tell me where this fuse is located as I have no other electrical issues at this time. Thanks so much!

The cigarette lighter works just fine in the ashtray but the one I use to charge my cell phone is no longer working.

Just looking for the fuse location!

Thanks so much guys!

Neither power outlet working - both fuses good

My problem is both outlets are not working but both fuses are good. I checked them with a volt meter on both sides.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks also Bernie, my Cig lighter has been out for months now, been meaning to fix that. Thanks for the attachment and I will scoop out what fuses have been at fault.

I'm not really a smoker... I just can't stand it when even a small thing is wrong with my car.

Thanks again!
