Default How to fix cigarette lighter on 93 Honda Accord?

Hello, about over a year ago I was using a portable dvd player in my 93 Honda Accord so I could listen to music, since my cd player died and I had no money. Well, I had the portable dvd player plugged in via cigarette lighter, and one day I pulled the car charger out of the cigarette lighter and the entire cigarette lighter pulled out of the console. I haven't fixed it and every time I drive the cigarette lighter will fall out of place and onto the cup holder area. How can I fix this? It is very annoying.

if you want a temp fix i would glue it or tape it. i would b carefull cuz its wired to a 12 volt source from ur battery. if you need to rewire it theres a red wire (solid color) and a black wire (striped wire) the solid color wire is ur pos. and the striped is ur neg. all u have to do is hook these up to the lighter and ur set. just b carfule cuz u could spark it and end up with a blown fuse.

you can purchase an after market cigarette lighter for around $8.00 and they are quite simple to install, just remember to pull the fuse before you unplug the old one.

you would need to pull center console out and then unbolt dash piece that holds lighter and pull it out.tighten lighter housing and then reverse procedure to put it back together! honda tech 12yrs.
