Wrong cigarette lighter. This has been known to happen. Its to short or to long. I cannot remember its been so long ago since this has come up. A quick fix would be to give up the cigarette habit and just watch movies or use the vacuum to keep it clean. But really its the wrong lighter.
I don't smoke in my car, so I do not really have a problem
but I don't have to worry it's a short circuit or an electrical other problem?
I safely can use the DVD or cleaner? that's for me the most important, wouldn't dream of it having a fire with my son sitting in the car..
As Ace43 said above there was another member here with the same issue.
The lighter was the wrong one. Dodge had to order them another one which fit the socket correctly.
See this thread. Keep blowing cigar lighter fuse Last page for the correct part #.
Don't know if this is related but, recently I purchased a portable heater that is a 12v 150 watt I plug into the cigarette outlet . It will last about 5 min before it blows a 20A fuse. Does anyone know how to fix this or should I not use that heater?
