Cigarette Lighter not working

I wanted to check to see if the cigarette lighter is in fact connected to the power. Since the fuse is the same for the power mirrors and locks and those work fine - my assumption is one of two things. The lighter is no good, or it is not connected inside the paneling.

How do I open the front panel without tearing my baby apart?? Thank you

Use a volt meter or 12 volt test light and see if voltage is present at the lighter, it is most likely a defective lighter.

I have a 2001 DHS Deville Cadillac I lost power for interior lights cigarette lighter power locks and trunk I've tested all fuses and all good how can I get this fixed?

It really sounds like it is your cigarette lighter fuse, but could possible be a problem with the BCM. If you double check the cigarette lighter fuse and find it to be good, getting power in and putting power out. You might end up at the dealership for a BCM module diagnostic.

My cigarette lighter socket quit working. I have no idea why. I can't figure out which fuse it is

using a test light check for power and ground for the lighter socket. if this is good then then you know the fuse is good. this indicates that you need to replace the cigarette lighter element. the part that gets hot when you want to light a cigarette.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak

Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

Cigarette lighter power source not working!

By all means, ck all your fuses first. Sometimes they blow if someone holds the lighter in.

2001 toyota sienna power mirror/ clock not working? icouldn't find the fuse. Please help me

There is an interior fuse panel located on the left side of the steering column, behind the "change compartment". You just pull it out and you will see a fuse diagram on the back. The fuse you want to replace is the fuse for the cigarette lighter, it is a 15 amp fuse and is located on the bottom right.

As far as I can tell, the owner manual makes no mention of this interior fuse panel and furthermore the actual fuse for the cigarrette lighter doesn't mention that it is connected to the clock and the power mirror.
