laccanvas: I would have broken all of the wires and parts trying to get that lighter out.
lauren jackson: is that for all car
heatherabby: Oh my gosh, you're my new hero. My lighter hasn't worked for a decade on my 19 year old saturn. The price quotes to replace and repair were CRAZY! I can do this! Yesterday for the first time I hit one of those 'pick a part' junkyards and was able to replace the pigtail harness for my license plate lights that had snapped off. I'm excited! Now to find the part I need! THANK YOU!
edward james: nicely done
Vegas “Vegas747” Seven four seven: Now is the cigarette lighter and 12V the same thing. Because on is heating up very hot and the other is just feeding current to a electrically powered object So my point being is that. Could i pull the actual thing that heats up to light a cigarette and plug a 12V cord into it ?
faimivivere: Great help! Thanks!
Iron “Lion” Zion: Hi, can anyone show me how to replace the cig lighter on my Renault Clio 1.2 16v please-stupid RAC sat nav sparked my lighter out-completely!
John Cox: Thanks for this! Mine wasn't exactly like this, but I learned what I needed to replace mine.
Jay Hoover: is there something yet I can do
Jay Hoover: ok I did that and it still not working the fuse is good
Michael Peterson: Rich, thanks again for a very helpful video. My lighter/acc. plug was blowing the 20A fuse in the instrument panel box. After doing some troubleshooting I figured it was the socket. It looked OK ... no real big burnt spots, but maybe a small piece of metal shorting out. I guess I could have tried cleaning it out without removing, but I watched your video and decided it best to take it out. That way I was able to clean, inspect and deoxit it. Works good now. Thanks.
BrianS198: Nice! Thanks man! Did you disconnect your battery before doing this or is it relatively safe?
Trizzo.26: Where can I buy a connector that snaps on to the back mine is missing and what's the specific name of the part?
Depends on the manufacturer. Some like GM and Ford do tend to allow the lighter and power ports to run even when the ignition isn't in the accessory (ACC) or ON position, whilst others (Such as Subaru and Toyota) will not provide power when the ignition isn't in either of those positions. Both have pros and cons, such as battery conservation vs being able to power a device when the ignition is switched off.
Jacob McKinney: Apparently I'm the only one hearing john leguizamo?
Roselinda Barajas: thank you great video
alphabet380: (continued) So I figure it HAS to be electronic/fuse based..Maybe some connection to the blown fuse in the cigarette lighter?
I have a 2002 SL1 Saturn
alphabet380: @richpin06a Thanks for making this video! Helped alot.
I have a question that might be related. I plugged a portable heater in my cig lighter and it blew (which is why I searched and found this vid so I can fix it), but ever since then (haven't fixed it yet) my Saturn has been acting weird.
So today, I got in to start the car and it cranked up once then cut COMPLETELY off. I mean the car wouldn't start AT ALL. No crank, no power what so ever. Battery is brand new and connections are good. S
MrRockaroundtheclock: nice one
MrRockaroundtheclock: you just made my day man, nice one
