How do you fix the cigarette lighter in a 1997 Saturn SW?

I own a 95 saturn, which I'm pretty sure has the same dash as a 96. Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable. Next you will need to take the center console cover off. There are two plastic rivets holding it on. Take off the cover underneath the console. It should be velcroed and snapped in. Once the lower cover is off reach up behind the center console on the side and push the center of the plastic rivet out. Repeat on the other side, and the console should be loose now. Pull it slightly up and out, until you can see the wiring harness at the top of the console. Pull the plug out of the console, and the console should come away free. Now you should have access to the back of the cigarette lighter plug. The socket for the cigarette lighter screws in like a lightbulb. Hold the part that the socket screws into, and using needlenose or other pliers, screw the front portion back in all the way. Reinstall the center console, reconnect your battery, and your cigarette lighter should work now. Now that your Saturn is complete, sell it as soon as possible before it breaks again. :) The instructions provided sound a little daunting if you have no clue about cars. However, the fix was very easy. It is important to note that there are four parts to the assempbly. The outer rim which fits in the outside of the lighter hole, a barrel separator which fits behind the console into the outer rim, the power receptacle which fits behind the barrel assembly, and the lighter receptacle which is put through the outer ring, the barrel, and then screwed into the "light bulb" like power receptacle. In order to completely screw in the lighter receptacle, you will stick your finger in the receptacle and continue screwing it in. Make sure it is tight. Thanks!

How do you fix your 2003 mini cooper cigarette lighter?

Depends what the problem is. If you've used a phone charger or something and now the "male" lighter doesn't stay in, you'll need to bend the "prongs" of the "female" part of the lighter so that they apply enough pressure to keep the "male" part in long enough to heat up. To do this, first make sure the ignition is off, just in case. Then get he lid of a Bic pen or similar, and wedge the pointed part in behind the cut-outs on the inside of the "female" part of the lighter unit. Now use your pen lid as a lever to bend the prong-like parts inwards; 1 or 2 mm should be enough. Then repeat for the other prong. Try it out, and lever the prongs in or out accordingly.

How do you fix cigarette lighter in 2002 Toyota Camry?

If you plug an electrical device in the 12 volt DC cigarette lighter of a 2002 Toyota Camry that draws more than 120 watts you may blow the fuse. The fuse block is behind a plastic cover below and to the left of the steering wheel. The back of the plastic cover shows the location of the 15 amp fuse. If you check the fuse and it's OK then the fusible link in the lighter plug is most likely blown. This happened to me. To remove the lighter plug you have to insert a small flat tip screw driver into a very small slot behind the black plastc mounting ring on the right side of the plug. The screw driver has to go in about 1/2" to depress a small plastic clip that is keeping the plug from coming out. There is another clip on the left side of the plug but there is no slot in the face plate on that side. You have to work it back and forth to get it to come out. It's not easy but it will come out. Once the plug is out you can diconnect the wiring plug and either replace the plug or if you can get the fusible link material replace that. The fusible link looks like a piece of solder wire with wire insulation on it. It is supported between four very small metal stand off brackets on the very back of the plug. The link will probably be melted if it blew the circuit. You can jumper these brackets together to check the operation of the plug.

How do you fix a cigarette lighter on 1996 ford contour?

What's wrong with it? Well, I'll try... First, I'll assume you've checked the fuse (you have, haven't you?) Look into the socket of the lighter and make sure the center contact is clean. If not, use a rubber eraser and some electrical contact cleaner to clean it up. Use a meter to see if there is 12 volts to the center contact. If not, then gain access to the back of the lighter and make sure the wires (both the "hot" lead and the ground wire) are solidly attached. If they are, make sure the ground wire is going to a solid ground and is firmly attached. Then, check the wire coming from the fuse block. If either wire is burned or broken, repair or replace it. If you get a good 12 volts to the socket, and have a good ground connection, replace the socket.
