Id start by checking the fuse.. if you do take the center cosole out i believe theres a 3-4 prong white plug that goes into it.In the new prelude I got the cigarette lighter doesn't work at all (need for electricity) I'm not sure if the previous owner disconnected it or a fuse is blown, I would like to know where to look before I start taking out the center console!
+1 Mine was also disconnected when the aftermarket cd deck was installed. Just pull out the ash tray out and you can usually see from there.A lot of them get disconnected during cd deck installs and etc because of how short the wire is running to the cigarette lighter when pulling the panel off.
Id say thats your cig lighter... when i bought my car someone ripped my center console out (before i got car) and i had to reconnect all that... my 1st post i mentioned the white connector...I pulled it today but never got the chance to check the cabling
But I def saw one of those white connectors with nothing plugged into it
yep just check the fuse
