Cigarette Lighter Not Working - Blown Fuse?

My front cigarette lighter provides no power so I think the fuse is blown. Does anyone know which fuse it is? I'm guessing it's the fuse box under the dash, but not sure which one and it's not in the manual.

Page 148 of the Jeep user Guide (not the manual) it mentions power outlet fuses.

Its different than other cars ive owned but fuse is in box under hood. The fuses under dash are really hard to get to but are less common to need. There is also fuse box(s) in the back as well. Its in the manual listed above for which fuse.

Fuse box under the hood there's the rear cigarette lighter: F18 — 20 Amp Yellow 12V Rear Cargo Outlet Ignition Powered
Fuse box under the dash there's the standard power plug: F94 — 15 Amp Blue Power Socket

But I don't see anything for the front cigarette lighter?

I hate how complex they make the fuse box and how to get to it. I am so used to seeing the box and the box telling you right there what is what, but not in this case.

I believe the fuse to the power socket is located at the left side of the steering column at the bottom of the instrument panel and is the F94 which is a 15 Amp Blue.

I got this from the manual. It also states "Do not connect devices with power higher than 180 Watts (15 Amps) to the socket. Do not damage the socket by using unsuitable adaptors. If the 180 Watt (15 Amp) power rating is exceeded the fuse protecting the system will need to be replaced." You could have plugged in something a little too powerful.

It is listed as the power socket- F94, 15 amp blue. At least that is what I believe since it cannot be anything else!

It's not the power socket fuse because that still provides power, so they must be separate.

Too bad it's not listed anywhere and the fuse box under the dash is near impossible to reach. I had to remove the bottom dash piece on the driver side be removing three screws to get a look at it. Now I can see the fuse box, but I can't pull the fuses in the narrow space. I'll need to purchase some long needle nose pliers today to pull and check each fuse... what a pain!

Just finished replacing the fuse and it restored power to the front cigarette lighter. Hope this helps others, this fuse box is a pain!

It's a 15 amp fuse on the bottom left.




I found it best to remove the lower dash. It's 3 screws along the bottom and 1 more on the left side. Once you remove the screws it will pop out and there's a metal support behind. I removed this to make more room as well (3 bolts). Ignore the wires hanging down, they're for an aftermarket alarm system.
