2 of the 3 ciagrette lighter outlets aren't working and one is really loose. What's the first thing to check and how do I fix them?

There's two tabs on the left and right sides of the lighter socket. Slightly pry them out and your cig lighter should lock in place when you depress the button. If they dont get warm, check your fuses.

Yea i had that issue when i got my X5, i remebver that there were 2 in the back trunk which worked and 2 in the front that dident, the issue was one of the fuse blew and i had to replace it which was also in the fuse box in the front. and one of the lighter was loose too but i stuck a socket in it and turned to the right till it tightened i dunno if that will help but it helped mine
