Fuses are VERY cheap, you can probably get a little bag for a dollar. Ask why the old one burnt out - that's the real question here! Don't take any chances with cigar-socket wiring, it can dump a LOT of current and start a fire in short-time - seen it happen. If in doubt, have a Pro do the work on it.

The fuse is only about 50 cents or less. Easy to change. So easy that I would never pay anyone to do it for me.

Go to your local auto parts store. Locate the blown fuse in the fuse panel and remove it. It just pulls out. Your owner's manual will tell you the location of the fuse panel. Sometimes there is more than one. The panel will have a cover. Inside the cover will be a diagram of what the fuses protect.

Bring it to the electrical isle and match it up to one that is the same size and amperage. The amperage is color coded. Look for a fuse the same size and color. If you have problems finding the correct fuse, ask at the sales counter. They would be happy to help you.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to replace the fuse with a fuse that is the same amperage (color).

I usually buy a package of assorted fuses. You should always carry spare fuses. In the fuse isle you will also find a fuse removal tool. Very inexpensive. Makes it easier to remove fuses. Many times the fuse removal tool is included if you buy a package of assorted fuses.

If you're worried about the price of a 10cent fuse you probably shouldn't be driving a cadillac. Go back to the dealership and get your pinto back there legit. We had coney's at work today. Remember that old song that goes "Broken glass everywhere people pissing on the stage and yo they just dont care" we kinda have some **** like that going on piss all over the floor. Brennan had him a dime piece last night took a week and a half but its legit.

The cigarette lighter fuse is located in the engine compartment on the right hand of the engine. Remove the top black cover, remove the black plastic cover under that if no one has thrown it away. (Was only used for assembly). As you are looking towards the front of the car, the row of fuses on the far right hand side, there should be 2 yellow(20 Amp) fuses on the far right side in a row, take out the bottom one & see if that was blown. Also, make sure no coins or other junk is inside the lighter socket. Also, remove any phone chargers as well, if you replace it & it blows again, you have a short somewhere. Also some phone chargers or other plugs will blow that fuse, the older cigarette lighter xosckets were not really designer for any type of plug-ins & so some may blow the fuse again once you plug it in. Also, you di not need to twist the plug once it is inside the lighter socket, I have seen too many people that think they need to twist the plug once it is in, what you are doing is unscrewing the outer housing from the rear cap on the lighter asy
