Need to replace 15 amp breaker

My cigarette outlet and the power outlet in my console are both not working. The manual says I need a 15 amp breaker for each. The spares are only 10, 20, and 30. Do I need to buy 15 amp breakers or can I use the 20/30 ones?

You best use the proper amperage fuse in the system, but you can probably get away with a 20amp in emergencies. I wouldn't be connecting too many chargers and whatnot to this one power source however, as you may overload the present wiring and cause damage to it.At best you might consider installing a secondary power supply socket. These are very inexpensive and can handle multiple outputs.

Power outlet


These power outlets have breakers, which can be found under the hood, in a plastic cover, which protects the relay & breaker center. The breakers will be labeled next to the breakers or on the underside of the cover. murf427

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak


Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

Hello and thank you. There is no power coming from the Cigarette Lighter (power Outlet as listed in the manual) of my 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring. I have searched both fuse boxes of the vehicle and can not...


Fuse is located under the spare tire well and is in the fuse panel and is an 20 amp fuse that is slightly misaligned on the middle row of the box. This will fix cigarette lighter in ash tray in lower middle cluster of radio and a/c.

Radio and cigarette lighter do not get power


The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.

After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.

Both of my front Power/cigarette lighter outlets give no power?


I do not have a diagram for this but : Lighter outlets are a "high draw" item which will be served by a circut breaker, not a regular fuse. Circut breakers are small silver plug in items found on your fuse panel. Both units may be on different lines also because of "HI draw". I'ts also not really difficult to make a new circut for this, to add outlets where you need them, or to replace missing ones.

No power to cigarette lighter/power outlet (front & rear)..


Replace the 15 amp ACC fuse that is in the fusebox under the dash. See if this eliminates your problem.

Fuses


The cigarette lighter is controlled by the 15 amp ACC fuse. This same fuse allows the Power Outlet Relay to power up. I would think that this fuse is your issue. Hope this helps, and Thanks for selecting FixYa to solve your question.
