Question about Cars & Trucks

My 2007 Scion cigarette lighter stopped working so I replaced the 15amp blown fuse and the cigarette lighter still don't work. Any suggestions on what to check next?

My wife had a power invertor plugged into the cigarette lighter so she was able to plug in a hair straightener while she was driving down the road, putting her makup on, and straightening her hair. When all of a sudden the cigarette lighter stopped working and needless to say so did the hair straightener, she arrived at her destination with frazzled hair.

if the fuse is good and there is no relay then either you have a loose ground/positve wire or the socket is bad. you can easily purchase a after market socket from Napa or Oreillys for a few dollars of the problem is not a loose wire or bad fuse. good luck please rate this solution...thanks

SOURCE: Cigarette lighter plug not working

hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out.  No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again.  worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.

The fuse box cover should tell you which fuse controls the lighter. Also, I've seen it where the people forget to hook the harness up to connect the lighter unit

Why won't my cigarette lighter work?


if the fuses re good then you will need to remove the lighter and check for power behind it. some lighters have a fuse link built in and if thats blown will need to replace the whole lighter assembly.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter, what number fuse do I need ?


Fuse 47 a 15amp fuse is for the cigarette lighter..it's located behind the glove box which you can drop down for easy access.
The "glove box" is the little box that opens on the left side, under the instrument gauges near the left door.......Not the big glove box on the right hand side.

I have a 2005 scion xb and my radio stopped working and my cigarette lighter. what could fix this?


The fuse that runs both is blown. Your manual will tell you the location and type needed to fix it. it will probably be a 10 or 15 amp fuse. Most cars have to fuse boxes. One inside and one under the hood. Most likely it will be in the one inside the car. Also, theres usually spare fuses in one of the boxes, so you shouldn't have to buy one. Check and make sure nothing fell into the cigarette lighter socket, like a coin for example. I've seen that countless times. When you find the fuse, pull it out with the white fuse remover located in the fuse box and put the new one in. Hope this helped! Please rate if it did!
