Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.
there is another fuse box under the hood in front of the battery. it will be a small 10 or 15 amp fuse change it and all will work again. if that is not the problem then check behind the glove compartment there will be another fuse box.
Fuse box should be located either in the glove compartment, or to your left below stearing wheel. Also check fuses under hood, should be located next to the battery. Double check the GPS, most of them will nox plug into cigarette lighter plug. It could damage the GPS.
get a cheap test light from an auto parts store . there will be metal nubs on top of the fuses check both sides of the fuses.make sure the clip on the test light is on clean metal.then use the pointed end to check the fuses.the light will light up on both sides if fuse is good.good luck
I had the same problem on my '97. I ended up taking out the lighter when I was replacing the LCD on the radio, only to find that somehow it had become disconnected. Not sure how it happened but it might be worth checking out to see if it wiggled loose. To get to the lighter: 1) Prior up the cover by the shifter (the one that also goes back to the seat heater). It is connected with snaps so pry slowly. 2) Once the panel is removed you will see screws that are holding in the ash tray/cig lighter. Unscrew those and the whole lighter/ash tray can be pulled out. It is also held in by snaps on the top.
