1999 Trooper Cigarette Lighter doesn't work

Postby RickysTrooper » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:20 pm

I have power to back of lighter housing (tested with 12 volt test light) but cigarette lighter doesn't work. Don't want to use lighter but need for phone charger. Plugged in cell phone charger and that doesn't work. Can I assume that the lighter housing is bad?
If so can anyone point me to any web sites that sell original Isuzu parts or is my best bet a universal lighter housing that I might have to jury rig to fit?

Thanks for any help y'all can provide.

Ricky,

Welcome to the Planet!

Next, get ahold of a 12volt test light or multimeter, using the appropriate range, and check the internal contacts for continuity! If still have no voltage, you may have a blown fuse! Trace with your light or meter to where you lose power. Could be a bad fuse, broken wire hidden by it's insulation, broken or mangled contacts, missing wire, or even a missing ground. Let us know what you find. HTH!

Cheers,

Make sure you're getting ground on the outer sleeve of the lighter socket.

There is a fuseable link on the lighter socket on my 98 Trooper, not really sure why but mine was blown. It's maybe 3/16" long and covered with a plastic insulation of sorts, it also did not look blown.

Like already noted maybe it is simply the fuse. I recently had to replace the one in my 99. It is in the cabin on the left side down where your left shin is. It was labelled "cigar" and I think a yellow 20amp one, IIRC. A dash cam adapter shorted out causing the fuse to blow.

Thanks for evrybodys help. Turns out the guts of the lighter housing was bad.Tried switching out with universal lighter housing guts but they didn't match up. Decided to install constant 12 volt socket that looks just like lighter socket. works likw a champ.
