Now, we’ll elaborately discuss all the common problems with their possible solutions.

Internal Issues

Generally, internal problems are mainly responsible for the Nissan Rogue cigarette lighter fuse blowing. Sometimes, you may notice that the fuse blew even without plugging into anything.

In that case, you should look into the socket and check for a foreign object. If there isn’t any foreign object, it indicates that your Nissan Rogue has some internal problems in the circuit.

Solution: To fix the problem, you can remove the socket and see if it fixes the problem. We suggest using a circuit breaker while following this solution to prevent expenses by not burning fuses repeatedly.

Damage Wires

We know that all the internal compartments of a vehicle are connected through wires. In that case, the wires must be in a good state to operate all the compartments functionally and prevent damage.

2015 Nissan Rogue cigarette lighter fuse can keep blowing due to defective wires or a shorted-out power wire. It means the connected wires of the lighter are burned or damaged and blow a fuse after coming into contact.

Solution: Look into the wires of the cigarette lighter and check if any wire is damaged or burned. If you spot any, consider fixing or replacing the defective connectors with new ones.

High Power Source

Most automakers use a 12V power source in their vehicle to charge mobile, laptops, tabs, and power the cigarette lighter.

In that case, if the lighter socket provides more power than 12-volt, the lighter will get higher consistent power which can keep the lighter always on and eventually burn the fuses due to overheating.

Solution: Check the power voltage of the lighter socket using a multimeter. If the power voltage is higher than 12-volt, change the socket if possible.

Manufactured With The ‘On’ Feature

Some models of Nissan Rogue are manufactured with a cigarette lighter that is always on, for example, the 2019 Nissan Rogue cigarette lighter fuse. Since the lighter is always on, a constant power supply to the lighter can overheat it and blow it gradually.

Solution: To fix this problem, manually turn off the cigarette lighter. You can turn off the lighter in two ways: using the power windows and sunroof button to turn off the cigarette lighter. Or holding the device’s power button for a minute to deactivate it.
