Someone stole stuff from my car a while back and ever since then my cigarette lighter has been funky. I suspect they ripped my chargers out aggressively and messed something up. I have a charger that seems to work fine in it but my USB dongle doesn't work at all just sitting... unless I hold it forward and then it seems to work a little off and on.

Has anyone had to do any work on their lighter? I don't know if it's something just bent and shorting or if it's something that will need to be replaced completely.

Although its most likely damage from the theft, look into the cigarette lighter and take a close look at the round metal piece in the bottom. Mine has an intermittent connection and it was caused by using a cheap USB charger that made both the charger and that round metal piece rust. I need to take a dremel with a soft wheel and see if its just buildup or if its actually in the metal.

Other than that, youll have to take it out and see if there is a loose connection or if the wires are bad.
