Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

Check the 15 amp fuse in location 22 under the hood and the 10 amp fuse in location 11 on interior fuse box. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

The under hood information panel does not list a cigarette lighter and the fuses are not numbered. All fuses appear to be good. The interior fuse box number 11 fuse is listed as the radio fuse and does not list anything about the cigarette lighter. The radio works OK.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Just advise me if there are any fuses that control the lighter. If there is no fuse with the system, then which relay of the three on the side panel above the interior fuse panel is the lighter relay? This is a 1993 Honda Accord 10th edition. I think I told you it was a 92. Sorry about that.

I'll try to find a diagram for you, give me a few minutes.

I have viewed these diagrams earlier today. The 22.PNG diagram does not resemble my Honda. Same with the 11.PMG. The relay diagram is of some help but does not give me enough information to figure which relay is the cigarette lighter.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
There are three relays above the interior fuse panel mounted horizontally on the panel . I am guessing the small one in the middle is the cigarette lighter but am unable to know for sure. Any ideas?

Not sure, I'll open question back up to see if someone else has some different information. Thanks.

Thanks, ***** ***** I look up some information on your car.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

Are you able to upload a picture of the 3 relays above the fuse box?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
That would take some time.....I can describe them if you would like.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I might be able to send you a picture via my cell phone to your phone. Would that work?

I just sent you a picture.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

It is far more common for the connection at the lighter to be bad or for the terminal in the bottom of the lighter to be corroded. How did you test for power at the lighter?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Marty, that picture does not look like the relays that I am talking about. The relays I am talking about are in a horizontal row, close together above the fuse panel on the interior panel.I tested with a volt meter. Also the cigarette lighter itself does not work and my dash cam does not work when I plug it in to the lighter socket. The dash cam works OK in other vehicles.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
No corrosion in the lighter area. I have not checked the wires behind the lighter that are connected to the lighter assembly to see if there is power there but can do that but it will take a few minutes to remove the shift panel cover to get to the wires and check them.

The lighter relay is further up and back. Are you sure the two fuses are good? Did you test them for power?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
The fuse question was my first question. I cannot find any reference to any lighter fuse on my fuse panels or any other place.

It probably says "interior light" fuse on the cover under the hood.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I have a interior light fuse 15 Amp listed on the diagram. Let me check it out. One minute please. The interior lights work OK but I will check that fuse anyway.

ok

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I checked that fuse and all other 15 Amp fuses in the box. All are OK

That picture may not be accurate as to the location. I just noticed there are more fuses in that box than I thought.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I will check that fuse again. It looks OK but I will check it with a meter. That picture shows the three relays above the fuses that I was talking about.

Those aren't the relays we want. You are going to have to dig under the dash for the lighter relay. Use a voltmeter to check the fuse. Connect the black lead to ground and probe the top of the fuse with the red lead. Both sides should read 12V DC with the key on.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
You want me to do that with the 15 Amp fuse that powers the radio...that is what my diagram says that number 11 is for. The radio works OK. Hold on and I will see if the radio goes off when I pull that fuse.

Correct. If both fuses are good you either need to get to the relay or to the back of the lighter to test the voltage.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
When I pull the number 11 fuse, the radio goes off so that number fuse is OK.

Ok, so it looks like either a bad relay or a bad connection at the lighter.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I will go to the back of the lighter and see if I have 12 volts there.

ok

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Marty, it looks like I have a bad lighter socket. I have 12volts at the back of the lighter socket but nothing when I plug into the socket. I'll replace the socket and cross my fingers.

Great! I didn't think it would be the relay. They rarely fail.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.
