Question about 1994 Toyota Celica
Plugged in a portable compressor today and only clicked a few times but did not work, and then nothing seemed like I had no power anymore, but then no power to the radio either. Checked the fuses and found the 15 A radio/cig lighter fuse and it was blown. I replaced it and now the radio works but the lighter still does not, It worked fine before, but not anymore......I'm puzzled!!! please help
Hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out. No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again. worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.

Hi sounds like the cig lighter socket is loose & not making a good earth, you have to get to the back of it ( remove the dash surround) & tighten it up, but first remove the fuse.
When ever you fit anything into the cig lighter never twist it that is what causes it to become loose, good luck

Replace the cig lighter itself.
