Question about 1995 Lexus LS 400
How to replace??
There is also a temperature fuse just under the ash tray. If you have allowed the temp to rise above a certain level, it will melt and stop the lighter from working regardless of whether you replace the electric fuse. You can replace it with solder wirde, but use copper at your peril as it is a fire safety mechanism.

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

There should be a fuse in the panel under the left hand side of the dash board. It would be labled cig ltr or assy. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

I would put a red volt meter lead on the middle and a the black lead on the outside. If it checks above 12 vols, the lighter itself is bad. If no voltage is present, you have to check all the positive wires back to the battery. If those are all working, you have a bad ground.
