hey guys, I just checked my fuse boxes (2 of the 3, engine bay and rear seat). Turns out my cigarette lighter fuse was blown big time. Its a 15 amp (blue) fuse and the its fuse #2 for those who are curious. If you you have a cigarette lighter problem check #2 b/c thats most probably the culpret. My Radar detector works perfect now . Thx for the help guys

For those people whose lighter outlets work with accessories but just pop out the lighter itself, bend those two tabs on the sides down there inwards a bit. Those accesory plugs tend to bend them outward and then they dont make good contact. Just do it with the key off.

Electrical Plug for back of lighter?

Well, my cigarette lighter isn't working either on my '84 300CD. When I took out the ashtray, I noticed that there is no wire leading to the back of the lighter plug. I assume there needs to be one. I guess I need to take the ashtray housing out to see if it's stuck behind it. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks!
