Sounds Like You Have An Exposed Hot Wire Somewhere. I Would Try And Change Cig Lighter Wiring Harness. Be Sure And Check Your Aux Outlets So That There Are No Exposed Wires. They All Run On The Same Fuse Hope This Helps!!

2007 toyota corolla no lights, wont start

What did you plug in? I had a similar issue when I plugged in a high amp tire pump. It kept blowing fuses because the pump itself had a short. Be wary of using stuff like that in the cig lighter. I switched to a hand held pump. How was the computer found to be defective? I wonder if the cig issue shorted the computer?

I ran a small tire pump from the ciarette lighter, it pumped some then stopped.Now the cig lighter doesnt work. My neighbor offered to help . his car did the same thing. I checked the fuse under the dash...

Try replacing the fuse with another of the same size eg 10amp. While you are under there check other fuses. The label is not always correct on Australian Toyotas, could be the same in your country.
If the fuse is blown, there is a short in the pump. Throw it away as it has blown the fuses in both vehicles. (yours and the neighbors)
Next time you are at a spare parts supplier buy yourself a cheap (usually under $10.00) LED computer safe test light. These are easy to use. It has a earth lead with a clip on the end and a probe on the other end that you touch to the fuse and see if it lights up the LED bulb.
First you connect the earth lead to a good earth, the ignition key while in the ignition is usually a good earth or a bolt that goes into the vehciles body. (You need a good earth)
Then you just touch the probe end to one side of the fuse and see if it lights up. If not you touch the other end of the same fuse and it should light up.
If only one end is lighting up the testers bulb the fuse is broken. (Yes it can look fine but be still broken)
If both ends don't light up move the earth lead to a bolt on the vehicle and recheck also check other fuses to make sure your have a good earth.
Tip, Some fuses only work with the ignition turned on while other work all the time.
You can also check the cig lighter with the test light. after checking the fuse is Ok
Again find a good earth bolt and attach the earth lead and place probe end into centre of empty cig lighter and it should light up the bulb. Becareful to to touch the side at the same time as this is the earth for the cig lighter.

Your Mazda definitely has a safety fuse controlling the cig. lighter...Review your manual for fuse block location...(sometimes more than one:) the fuse diagraham in the manual should help find the specific fuse...labeled cig. lighter...:) You may find some extra fuses in your glove box kit...if not, they are available at most Auto Parts stores...
