I just got my sisters '95 Toyota Avalon. The radio and lighter are on the same fuse but the lighter doesn't work. She didn't smoke and the lighter looks brand new and the radio was never maxed. Ideas?

You need to check that it has power by getting a test light if you have one and putting it on the center pin at the back of the lighter socket. Or if your try to use a charger for a phone or something check the fuse in that by unscrewing the part on the end of the part you put in the socket

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.

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

I just acquired 2005 toyota avalon limited, I noticed when you switch on the radio(audio) and the CD it plays but there is no volume.  Even the volume and mode control on the steering wheels is equally not...


it being an avalon it is a higher end car. a lot of cars these days have external amplifiers factory installed. I would start checking fuses. it might be an aux power fuse or it might have radio fuse. they generally have two fuses that power them though. one that supplies 12 volts continuously so that all presets remain in memory, and the 12 volt switched power source that tells the radio that the key is on. I know that you said that the radio is functioning properly just no sound but your best bet would be to just start checking fuses. there is a fuse box inside car and also a fuse box under hood. you generally have to remove a small black cover and you will see the outside fuse box. when checking fuses though pay attention to anything that isn't working such as the cigarette lighter or horn, these are sometimes the power supplies to the radio. hope I didnt confuse you but an 05 is kinda too new for you to have a bad radio. more than likely something little just one of those aggrivating little jobs of finding what it is.
