im guessing its the wrong plug?

it wont even push back in... notice all the times i tried to force it?
Ah yeah, I just noticed the attempts to insert the thing. On the backside of my center console there is a 12 V power outlet, not a cigarette lighter. I'm not sure if there is any difference between cigar socket & power socket as far as attachment to console.

so it may be a non orignal lighter that you are trying to put into a orignal hole?
