Part of the rear of the cigarette lighter is a built in fuse which blows when shorted. Fix is a new cigarette lighter are a lil soldier acrodd the terminals. Be carefull not to use the earth one though.

    The lighter socket will have to be removed with the panel. The centre console is nearlly all clips with only a couple of screws. To discribe in full would take hrs on a pc, without the car infront. but only a few minutes to perform. use some thing plastic rather than a screw driver to " pry " out the panels. ( Gently )

    once the panel has been removed if you look at the back of the lighter, you will see were a wire used to be. between two terminals. I have used just a short piece of wire to replace the fuse and soldierd it in place. The lighter is still protected by the main fuse but would recommend placing a 10amp fuse close to the socket were you can if required get to it. Care should be used when inserting the phone charger to make sure that the earths on the side of the pin are not in line with the power legs in the cigerette lighter socket.

    Alternative is if you do not smoke and will never use this as a lighter.. change it to a power socket perchased from local car parts shop. They are different!

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.

I have a 2006 dodge ram 1500. I was driving and put my phone charger in the cigarette lighter to charge my phone and when I did my radio stopped working. When I got home I checked all fuses under hood...


there will be a fuse for the cigarette lighter socket probably in the accessories section fuse and should be about 20-25 amps. Check out the socket for a short or check the way you put the adaptor in the socket as a bit of misalignment will short out the centre point which is the live wire.

Sometimes the lighter has a small built in fuse. Get a test light and check the center pin of the socket, it it does not have power, take the socket out and check the wire, it the wire has power, the fuse is bad. Sometimes you have to buy the whole socket to get the fuse, but I done know about your particular socket on a Jaguar.

If there is no power to the sockets, changing the bulb wont correct the problem. Check all fuses. Check for current to the tailight. Check for ground to the tailight. Repair as nesessary.
Check cigarette lighter filament. It may be faulty. Check inside cigarette lighter socket. It may have a foreign material in it causing the short.
