    Today I went out to finish up a business that I do across the street from where I live and when I went to flip on my lightbar, it wouldnt work, so I thought it was the light bar so I hooked up my backup wirlers and they didnt work either. Any knowledge about this would be great, thanks.

    Those plug in lightbars can get hot and melt at the plug. Also sometimes there is a fuse in the plug itself. I would cut the cord and put it on a switch that is fused. Just a better way to do it.

    If its not a fuse there is a wire behind the cig lighter that just pushes on I believe and can fall off happened to my ford.

    Ok this might be it but how do I get the base out of the hole? do I have to pry it out?

    There's a long base that un threads from the lighter ...It holds it to the dash
