    Guru level indeed, keemo68. I found the fuse area. The owner's manual was useless, by the way. I think Toyota documentation stinks.

Is there a fuse for the 12 volt accessory outlet?

Look for ACC or LIGHTER designation. Could be a broken connection at the outlet.

Radio stop working

Check for a blown fuse in the power circuit to the radio.
If your radio is an aftermarket one, it may have been improperly installed and powered from the cigarette lighter circuit. If so, check the fuse for the cigarette lighter circuit.

It may be that a "fusible link" was blown open when you attached a defective cell phone charger (what you call a "memory charger?) If so, you will have to get professional help in finding the location of the fusible link, often buried within the car's wiring harness.

I need a power wire that is only live when the engine is running

Hi Warren,

What you're looking for is a "switched power source". This would be much easier if you provided the car's year, make & model. Regardless, here are the generic steps you need to follow:

Older cars have a terminal in the "fuse block" that was labeled "accessory" or "ignition". This terminal provided power only when the the key was turned to "accessory" or the "run" (or sometimes called "on") position. Some cars have more than one fuse block, many times this additional fuse block can be found under the hood or under a seat in the cabin.

You should probe the fuses with a DC volt meter one by one with the engine off and the key removed to see which ones have no power, then check those same "dead" fuses with the engine running. Once located, you should be able to use any of those fuses to power a low power device when the engine is running / key on accessory. Make sure that the power provided is 12 - 14 volts though - some newer circuitry is in the 8 volt range and will not work as expected.

Some newer cars however, make use of electronics that that turn power on and off independent of the key. Some will allow the radio to play, power windows to work, etc. after the engine has been shut off and key is removed for a predetermined length of time (10 minutes or so) or until the door is opened - whichever happens first. You may need to find the power lead for the radio, power window, or other device that works as described here and connect to it for a switched power source.

If you blow the fuse after connecting the new device, you'll need to install a small, inexpensive relay to control the new load. These are available at auto parts stores for less than $20. Instead of powering the new device, you would power the relay coil. Run a wire capable of handling the load (or greater) between the battery and one side of the normally open ("N.O.")switch contact on the relay, and the power lead of the new device to the other side of the normally open switch contact. The result will be that whenever there is power available to the radio (engine running / key on accessory), the relay will be energized. The energized relay will close the N.O. contact and bring power from the battery to the device.

If you oversize the wire from the battery to the relay, you can supply power to other devices such as radar detectors, GPS units, FM transmitters, power inverters for 120 volt devices, etc. Make sure the wire from the battery is fused properly and that the relay contacts are rated equal to / or greater than the amp rating of the this fuse.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

The accessory power supply, not the cigarette lighter, isn't working. Which fuse do I replace?

The car makers sometimes do not list power outlet, the best thing is to test all the fuses, let me see if i can find a fuse diagram for your 2000 sienna,..................okay fuse is labeled as power outlet and is in the inside fuse box not the engine compartment fuse box, here is a diagram of the fuse box i circled the fuse ,the fuse box is located on the driver side under the left side of the cluster, good day.8_27_2012_5_55_17_pm.gif

My ciger lighter does not work trying to find out if its the fuse or not 2007 toyota tacoma

tou can take a test light and being very careful look into the cig. ligher hole and touch the center part to see if it lights if not it is probably a fuse or it has come unplugged or the socket is burned out.if the power outlet is working then the fuse should be good because by the wiring diagram it is powered by the same fuse.if you need to check the fuses they are located on the drivers side of the dash left of steering wheel lower panel. the fuses you need to look for are 15 amp power outlet fuse and a 7.5 acc fuse and there is also a relay that is powered up by these fuses and it is a acc skt relay.if these fuses are good i would go to the panel where the cig. power outlet are located and remove it and check for power and ground with my test light or a volt meter and it could just be unplugged.......good luck and i hope that this will help you let me know if you solved the problem........ if i can be of further help let me know......

1996 Cavalier 12 Volt power outlet in car doesn't work right?

Even thought the plug in is 12 volt. It's ouput is different. Most electronics have different ranges from 3-9 volts.
Does the 12 volt charger put out 12 volts? If so, it would burn up the electronics' capacitors on their power supplies.
How is the car's electronics doing? Are they too failing? If so, that would be a faulty voltage regulator, if not, I would hook up anything you use to the radio wires.
You cannot plug in anything directly to battery no matter what the person told you. Batteries charge, than release charge, a contiuous cycle. The power output is speratic and anything hooked straight up to the battery will need a fuse.
