The sigarette lighter fuse should be 15A, but I would check all the fuses. If it wont help the wire coming to lighter is loose. In this case you might need to remove the central console. You can find info here too
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
Good Luck

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.

My cigarette lighters do not work to charge my cell phone? could this be a fuse problem? If so, which fuse is it?


Yes, could be cigarette lighter fuse blowed. Check fuse no.# 42 - F42 (20A) = cigarette lighter, 12 Volts. See picture below:

For 2006 VW Jetta the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.

CIGAR LIGHTER WILL NOT CHARGE UNLESS ENGINE


Some cig lighter plugins are wired directly to battery, others are connected to ignition. You can always re-wire it straight to fuse or radio memory wire (Yellow) on cd deck or (Green/Black) from car wiring

Hey I have a 1997 jeep wrangler. My cigarette lighter will not work! I can not charge my GPS or my cell phone. I just replaced It with a new one and it still will not work! I can not find were the fuse is...


there is another fuse box under the hood in front of the battery. it will be a small 10 or 15 amp fuse change it and all will work again. if that is not the problem then check behind the glove compartment there will be another fuse box.

Cigarette lighter fuse location on Ford Escort ZX2 2002


I had exactly same problem. I could not use my GPS or charge my cell phone.
In front of the driver sit, there are actually 2 fuse boxes. You probably found the first one. A second one is located above well hidden. Once you find it, you'll find the fuse you are looking for.
