Probably not a fuse, but a fusible link located in the wiring behind the lighter socket.

I just fixed mine. The fuse(a 20 amp Yellow) is located in the trunk. I guess one of my inexpensive cell phone chargers blew it out. I hope this helps anyone who has the same problem

I have the same problem, I replaced the fuse(located in trunk) but as soon as I pressed the lighter in to see if it works, the fuse popped again. I'm thinking there's a short somewhere...good luck finding it.

As previously stated, there are three fuse Blocks. The one under the hood controls most of the engine computer electronics. There is also one in the front passenger side of the console, and a removable panel on the drivers side in the trunk. I myself have leds added in my vents, cup holder, and in the console powered off of the cig fuse. If it is continuing to short out, check it with something else. Most likely it is what you are plugging in. I had that problem with my cig lighter before.

You have the wrong sized lighter. The Pontiac uses a short lighter. If you try a longer lighter it shorts out when you push it in. Check out the Grand Am Owners Club - lots of good info.

I guess you didn't know - but thanks anyways. Three fuse blocks in the car. For the Cig/Aux - it's the block in the truck (drivers side). It's a 20 amp fuse.

well I took my vib to GM for a recall (window switch) and my lighter fuse to change, I went to pick up the car and was told it wouldn't start, after the weekend with no car they called and said a fuse under the hood had burnt now I ask u if they are a M dealer why didn't they know that> I was left at their garage on a Friday, with no loner, I live an hour away and had no car all weekend plus had to bum a ride to work Monday, let me say their service sucks and when I do pick up my car I'm gonna tell them they'll never see me there again

The wiring on my 1999 Grand Am SE for the cigarette lighter has three prongs in the plastic housing, 2 silver, and 1 copper. The copper prong had nothing on it. I am assuming that this is the ground. The two wires to the silver prongs are still attached. Is there a separate wire for the ground? I can't locate it anywhere under the dash. Any ideas?

we have a 2007 g6 and our cigarette lighters don't work. fuse pops as soon as you put it in. the garage told us it's an internal thing (

Any body know were the cigarette lighter fuse is for a 2008 gmc 2500hd single cab gas?
