Ciggarette Lighter

(1999 Ford Escort)
in Speedway, IN on November 21, 2010
My ciggarette lighter will not work...I have tried replacing the entire lighter and the tube it goes into. I checked my fuse and it was blown so I replaced the fuse. Then I tried hooking up the lighter again. Still does not work. Any suggestions? Does my fuse keep on going out? Or am I just not getting the right car lighter? PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!!

is your fuse still blowing or not? If so, you have a short to ground which is blowing your fuse. If not, check for power and ground at the lighter socket. Sometimes there's a mismatch betweeen the lighter socket and the lighter itself. Check it out.
