It is the same fuse as the courtesy lights and cigarette lighter. It may be in the interior fusebox or the exterior one.

SOURCE: cig lighter wont work

try getting a new lighter. if it is a fuse, it would be labeled on the cover to the fusebox. it is also common for the wiring itself which leads to the cigarette lighter to burn out.

Can blower motor, cig. lighter, fan cooling motor, door locks all be tied into the blower motor relay faulting out?


Sounds more like a key switch or fuse box problem.
The circuits you mentioned would be on separate fuses but could be connected to the key switch. The relays are grounded by the engine computer to be energized.

No spark and obd2 error


could be a blown fuse for the engine computer, or a problem with the key switch. you might check the cig lighter fuse too.

2007 toyota corolla no lights, wont start


What did you plug in? I had a similar issue when I plugged in a high amp tire pump. It kept blowing fuses because the pump itself had a short. Be wary of using stuff like that in the cig lighter. I switched to a hand held pump. How was the computer found to be defective? I wonder if the cig issue shorted the computer?

No radio, no cig lighter


the fuse box is under the dash panel on drivers side. Fuse is blown. You may have faulty relay as well. Change fuse first. THere could be a short in the control switches causing fuse to snap.

Engine starts but cannot shift out of park


Your transmission shifter is controlled by the "shift interlock system". You blew the fuse that controls it. I'm guessing that your radio also does not work?

The fuse you need to replace is for the cigarette lighter - it's in the driver side kickpanel. It controls the lighter, the radio, and your shift interlock system.

The "Stop" fuse could also create the same problem, because your car must register the brakes as being depressed before it will let you shift out of park. Check both those fuses first. One of them is likely your issue.

Good luck.
