Hi Guys/Gals

I've just bought a Honda CRV 2002 Gen2 and my front cigarette lighter is not working.

Note the back one is working fine and I've also checked the 15Amp fuse which looks to be fine.

Any ideas?

Guess I should pull out my volt meter and test to see if it's live at all.

Cheers
Peter

Hmm so I'll slowly update what I've done in case someone runs into the same issue.

So I tested the back cigarette lighter which came back with 12v the front didn't.

Pulled the fuse 18 which is a 15amp fuse to see if it would drop the back one out.

Well it did so back to square one again.

I'm having the exact same problem. I'm hunting around for solutions. I'll post back if I find anything.

found this:

Found info saying a TSB suggests replacing outlet with part p/n 39624-sz3-l01

Accessory Power Socket Keeps Blowing Fuse

Got a vehicle in your shop because the accessory
power socket keeps blowing the fuse? The reason
may be a compatibility problem between the
power socket and the power adapter that’s being
used. The original power socket has a center tip
that sticks out. With some power adapters, if the
center tip on the adapter gets pushed in too far, it
causes a short in the adapter and the fuse blows.
To fix this problem, check to see if the power
socket has a center tip that sticks out. If it
does, then replace the power socket with
P/N 39624-SZ3-L01, H/C 8445454, and replace
the fuse. This new style power socket has a
recessed center tip that doesn’t cause the power
adapter to short when you plug it in. If the power
socket already is this new type, then look for
other possible causes for the blown fuse.

Not sure on the CRVs as I never have used the 12V plug up front...but since people hardly smoke anymore...on some cars, you have to have the ignition in the 'ACC' or 'ON' position for power to be applied to the 12V socket...

If you haven't already, you may try that...

By the way, I had a 2000 Jeep like that...it had two sockets up front...one was actually a real cigarette lighter and the other was a 12V auxiliary socket...this socket would not come on unless the ignition was on the 'ACC' position.
