Check the fuse first, I've seen plenty blow when use for chargers.

Re: Fiesta cigarette lighter change

Just check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. They can all be checked in a minute or two with a $5.00 test light. As far as replacement, they can be bought at most any parts store or wal-mart. Seems like they are less than $10.00

Re: Fiesta cigarette lighter change

hi

i presume that means checking all the fuses in BOTH fuse boxes??? the one under the steering column and the one in the engine, or is it just one of the above??

thanks for your help.

Re: Fiesta cigarette lighter change

The one for the lighter is most likely under the dash. I would check all though, just in case something else is blown that you don't know about. You could also check the wire on the back of the cig lighter to be sure it hasn't come off. Check for power there too. If you have power and ground to it, then the unit should be at fault. (2 cents)
