Default Cigarette Lighter Fuse?

The lighter quit working in my 93 Accord EX, and neither fuse block has a blown fuse, or shows a fuse protecting the lighter. Anyone know where to look?

There IS a fuse protecting the lighter, but I couldn't tell you where it is in an Accord. It could also be the relay. Or the cig lighter itself. Did you try swapping it with one from another car?

Yea, I switched lighters, tried a phone charger, and then checked for power - there ain't none there. Got to be some protection somewhere...

That's a good point about the wiring behind the lighter. There's also a relay that feeds the lighter. On mine (Acura) it's right above the under-dash fuse fuse box. Don't know if yours is in the same place, but there IS a relay in a cig lighter circuit.

No loose wires- I will try to get ahold of a wiring diagram.

On my 92, the cig lighter is on the fuse marked 'radio/motor antenna' in the kick panel

If the stereo and the antenna motor are getting their juice, then the cig relay is getting all its inputs. If its contacts are corroded, it won't be able to get voltage to the other side of the relay. No voltage to the cig lighter.

Do you have a voltmeter or a 12V test light?
