"Cigarette lighter" blows fuse

I noticed the cigarette lighter holder has come out of the "console", there is a plastic tube, behind the dash / console, but neither will stay in place, when the cigarette lighter comes out it touches something, sparks and blows the fuse, how can I keep it in place? Or should I just wrap electric / plastic tape around the end and let it hang out ? ! ? ! ?

Often the tube that protrudes through the dash has a lip to keep it from falling into the hole. On the backside is a second tube that screws into the end of outlet and tightens against the inside of the dashboard hole. Remove the wires, taping them to prevent shorting, and see if you can tighten the outlet socket in the dashboard, then re-connect the wires, keeping ground on the outside and (+) on the center post.

As above...

Check as most simply vibrate loose while others crack.

Cause is often heavy things plugged in causing stress.

Look at using port multiplier cord that plugs in and has a length of wire then outlets.

If just loose add a drop of nail polish to the threaded interface to help keep it from coming loose.
