the fuse will blow when...

the wire is getting ready to melt. So the fuse blows first to save the wire so change the lighter its bad. Now this could be the lighter itself and not the socket so find another lighter and try that before you go and change out the whole thing.

Before you go and buy a new lighter..check whether the current lighter is tight..I had a problem that turned out being, the lighter was loose and the hot lead was grounding out..
