If the previous owner or you smoke and used the lighter alot,















carbon builds up at the bottom of the lighter and it can arc the hot wire to the side of the lighter to ground causing the fuse to blow.

If each of these circuits have their own fuse and they all blow when their used, then I'd say the short is in the fuse box or the wiring harness. If all these are on the same circuit and only one fuse blows then I would isolate the problem by turning one thing on and see if fuse blows if not try the next one until the fuse blows, then you'll know where to start looking for the problem short , if its a short to ground, bad switch, overheating relay etc. good luck
