    I have a Toyota Avalon XLS 2002 and the fuses for my cigarette lighter blow whenever I put them in. I am unable to use by telephone or garmin charger. What is wrong?

    I have a Toyota Avalon XLS 2002 and I have the same problem, I am unable to use my cell phone or garmin adaptor. What can be done? I need them in my business.

    Are you using a cell-phone adaptor?

    That is the most common cause of fuse failures.

They probably share the same fuse. Sounds like cig lighter coil is shorted and "fiddling around" blew the fuse. Replace the fuse and try a different lighter coil.

There are 2 possible areas. 1 is the fuse box beside your left foot. 2 would be in the engine compatment on the right.

SOURCE: cigarette lighter doesn't work

before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

cigarette lighter & radio fuse should be a 15 amp fuse in the interior fuse panel listed as; 15A CIG if you need a wiring diagram let me know if you have an audio system with an integral amplifier or separate amplifier.

How can I change the cigarette lighter fuse in Toyota Avalon 2005?


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.

Radio fuse keeps blowing


make sure nothing in cig lighter socket..coins,etc..if nothing present,unplug cig lighter socket and replace fuse..if fuse doesn't blow,it's the socket causing fault..if it does,unplug radio,plug cig lighter back in and replace fuse..if fuse doesn't blow,radio is cause of fault..if it does,then ther is short in wiring

I just acquired 2005 toyota avalon limited, I noticed when you switch on the radio(audio) and the CD it plays but there is no volume.  Even the volume and mode control on the steering wheels is equally not...


it being an avalon it is a higher end car. a lot of cars these days have external amplifiers factory installed. I would start checking fuses. it might be an aux power fuse or it might have radio fuse. they generally have two fuses that power them though. one that supplies 12 volts continuously so that all presets remain in memory, and the 12 volt switched power source that tells the radio that the key is on. I know that you said that the radio is functioning properly just no sound but your best bet would be to just start checking fuses. there is a fuse box inside car and also a fuse box under hood. you generally have to remove a small black cover and you will see the outside fuse box. when checking fuses though pay attention to anything that isn't working such as the cigarette lighter or horn, these are sometimes the power supplies to the radio. hope I didnt confuse you but an 05 is kinda too new for you to have a bad radio. more than likely something little just one of those aggrivating little jobs of finding what it is.
