cigarette lighter socket

Postby thecos99 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 12:37 pm

I have a 2010 Nissan Versa hatchback. The cigarette lighter does not work. The fuse is good. Should I replace the cigarette lighter? If so, how do I remove the current one and replace it? Thanks

Hi and welcome to NICO Club!

Lighters go bad, but before replacing the lighter, check the socket it goes into. Plug a USB car charger in there or anything and see if it lights up. If not, then it's the plug, if so, it's the lighter. Double check your fuse. Maybe you did a visual check, but you want to really test with a voltmeter for continuity to see if it's burnt. Obviously, the lighter is easier to replace than the socket. If it's your socket, let me know and I'll try to help you with diagnoses, how to gain access, and where to find the replacement part.
