Fred Corey: Thank you for taking the time to share this fix! It worked perfect to repair my cigarette lighter. I also blew it using a portable air compressor.
Jay Gill: Thanks man, very clear and descriptive. I was going to replace the fuse with a wire which would've done the same thing except 10x the work.
Ray Wright: okay great, but how do you get this part OUT OF THE CAR??
Unknown: Looked like that wire was serving some type of safety purpose. Not sure what since it looked like only a wire. I'd just replace the socket. You can buy those sockets pretty cheap. Mine are 4 dollars OEM. To each his own I guess.
DrFlippin: just wondering if by removing the insulating washer and putting the 12v socket into 'constant on' position, whether this will lead to draining the battery if the car is parked for a few days?
Will Jordan: Cool thanks great fix
g moon: Thx Dude very helpful, you rock...
CzarPeppers: I just replaced my cigarette lighter, and it was working perfectly fine as a cigarette light until I plugged a charger in and it blew. It made a popping sound, but the fuse was still fine. Now when I put the cigarette lighter in it still heat up but doesn't pop out, I have to pull it out myself before it gets too hot. Seems like its warped or something.
Diya Zee: My question is what tipped you off that you need to remove the entire thing out from your car, and also where did you get the correct tools to disassemble the socket? Thank you! Very informative
5000nate: you must have your lighter is working but it's not producing enough power into my phone right now it seems not to be working correctly since I got my stereo installed
Mani Rajaram: say anyone with a pontiac montana...have problems with the rear cigarette light charger..?
Noah Barnhart: theres a fuse protecting you from too too high of a load. that fuseable link is for over heating. you should be fine as far as using too many amps as long as there is a fuse. i wouldnt trust that outlet with a lighter in it.
Jose Miranda: yo instale un cigarette ligher socket universal en la parte de atras del descansa braso de una toyota tacoma. y cuando le pongo el USB CHARGER me funde los fusibles de 15a. Que estoy haciendo mal
Tyler Davis: I have a 1991 Chevy s10 I was messing with the cigerate light and it messed up my lights in my dash and messed my radio does anybody got any solutions I already checked the fuses
Joseph Wolchak: I can't find that battery adapter remedy you show in the vid, How can I adapt something / lighter socket to attach to battery ?
Evan Wenneman: Probably wont get a response but worth a try. i have a 96 Saturn Sc2 and when i plug my phone charger in i have to wiggle it/ move it a certain way for it to stay on but if it gets bumped by the slightest thing it turns off. i want to go get my radar defector today but i dont know how to fix this.
Oscar Crespo: today I was trying to fix my cigarette lighter on my friend's car it is a Camry 1997 4 cylinder. During my work the two terminals got touched by an accident and now bought of them are showing ground signal. The pink color supposed to be the positive but now is ground signal. Do you have any idea what to do to fix it. Thanks for your help.
Jonathan Snead: Man I just wanna know how to actually use a cigarette lighter. I've searched a lot of crap and i can't come up with any answers. Is there ANYONE who knows how to make the cigarette lighter actually heat up the coil to light the damn cigarette
xCanox 10: ummm maybe speak the freak up.
Scott Cupoli: Hey! very helpful tip there. My Lexus RX300 has the same design cigarette lighters. Probably really nice if your in a pinch. But would be safer fixing it with the wire fuse. Peace!
