Open the drivers door and right on the side of the dash, next to the vents you will see a panel that says fuses with a little lightning bolt. Pull that off and you will see them all there and their locations listed on the rear of your panel you took off.

Mine says "Cig/aux" and it's 10amp.

When my rear lighter didn't power my gps I found that te fuse for THAT particular lighter is on the passenger side, same location and it's under "AUX PWR".

Good luck!

Edit: forgot to mention that THIS fuse is a 20amp

I have a 2005 impala and both fuse boxes have a fuse for the cigarette lighter. Problem is that even with both fuses removed I'm still getting power to one of them. Any ideas which fuse it may actually be?


Edit: Nevermind, it was the 20 amp aux not the 15 amp cig

Hey guys. I replaced both fuses (AUX and cig) and the cigarette lighter still doesn't work. The light in the pull out ash tray works though. Do you think my problem is the 12v receptacle themselves? Or further down the pipe?
