Default Cigarette lighter & Power outlet not working -all fuses fine.

The cigarette lighter and Power outputs not working on my 99 GS
I checked all the fuses in the fuse box (in the engine compartment,driver and passenger side) and all of them are ok. Is there an in-line fuse somewhere that might have blown?

There is a very small fuse at the base of the cigarette lighter, very small... You will have to remove it to see it.

Hey Acer I'm currently having about the same issue, I only attempted to change the fuse on the passenger side kick but i notice people have mentioned there are multiple fuse box's (news to me) I just bought my GS last night and it was the first thing i realized after the fact. Oh well, did you have your problem fixed yet?

I have the same problem I've even bought a new cigarette lighter, still doesn't work, the one inside the armrest doesn't work either.

Hopefully someone can dial in about where the small fuse is, because it's been an annoying problem when I need my phone charged, I also don't remember seeing any small fuse

update::: I figured out my problem it was a fuse, apparently there are several fuse boxes. The one under the driver dash (behind the foot brake) ended up being the problem now its restored

Hello all, recently my cigarette lighter and console power outlet stopped working. I checked the fuses under the dash and those are OK and I pulled the lighter and power outlet and both of those have good fusible links. Is there a schematic of the electrical system somewhere? Whatever it is, it is most likely under the hood or in the dashboard somewhere. Thanks.

The fuse behind the foot break, you mean on the kick panel? I check mine and is ok, should I change anyway? Is there any other fuses somewhere related to the cigarette lighter, anybody? Take a picture please and thank you very much . I need help.

I check the fuse on the kick panel driver side and is OK, I check the power outlet under the arm rest and is working fine, but the cigarette lighter doesn't work.
I look at the manual, the cigarette lighter and the power outlet is in the same fuse.
Need help anyone, thank you.

How did you check your fuse, by looking at it? Best way is using a volt meter or tester light.
