2006 ION-2 Sedan
Default Front cigarette lighter not working!

2006 Ion 2 sedan:

Hello,
My front cigarette lighter has stopped working. The rear one works fine. Do they both use the same fuse? If so, how do I replace the lighter and where can I purchase the unit aftermarket?
Thank you!

if you have one, use your warranty, if not, order it from saturn or GM unless you can find one in a junkyard, these cars are too new to find these things aftermarket. as far as what fuse it is, read your manual.

A faster way to check the fuse question is to just pull the fuse cover panel from your Center IP. "Kick Panel" by the Driver's Gas Pedal area... There is a nice layout of the Fuse Block... With Amp Ratings and brief descriptions...

Just pull the one(s) related to the Power Outlets(? I think that is right.) and check their condition. Pop them back in and see what happens.

because they need to learn to help themselves on the simple stuff.

lazfran didn't specify if the fuse(s) were checked before posting or not. As worded it could go either way. Checked and they were good but the outlet still doesn't work... or didn't check and wanted more info. first...

Another thing to try before ripping out the power outlet is to verify that your 12 volt "test" device(s) are "good" (would seem so if they work in the rear outlet) AND are able to make good contact inside the outlet itself...

It may be possible that the contact surfaces are dirty or corroded and just require some cleaning. You might need to pickup a "dentist" mirror (hardware stores should have these...) to see into the outlet to see if everything looks OK in there...
