Question about 1999 Toyota RAV4
I was using an iPod charger in the car's cigarette lighter, which was fit in pretty snug...almost too snug. I guess from constantly taking it out of the car and putting it back in caused the lighter to become loose. The last time I attempted to remove the charger, it pulled the cigarette lighter right out causing whatever wiring was connected to it to become disconnected.
I attempted to connect the wire back to the cigarette lighter, but it wasn't working. The lighting underneath still works and the connector on the end of the wire that should link up with the lighter is still intact. Is there anything I can do to fix this issue? 1999 RAV 4, lighter base came out of the socket, detaching the wires. How do I fix this? (The exterior portion of the lighter got harder and harder to remove until the whole thing came out. Arrrgh!)
There could be a wire in side the unit its self and that might have come dislodged
try it and let me know
