    Have you replaced the fuse? It's most likely your equipment is on the same circuit

Replace the fuse in the fuse compartment it will say lighter on it, and check to make sure the wire on the back of the lighter has not opened up causing it to have to large of a hole making high restance and causeing it to blow the fuse. crimp it with a pair of pliers not to tight just enoungh so that it pushs on the post, It may have a nut on it too but check it and the ground your havinging something causeing high amp draw and it is likely the lighter before replaceing the fuse clean out the inside the lighter so it does not have any unburnt stuff in it and clean the end of the lighter tip. That should fix it and if it blows again you need to follow the lighter wire to see if it's touching somewere and tape it up. If this helps you plese rate me sir.

The fuse has blown. Check all fuses. Before replacing fuse, make sure there is no foreign material, like a coin in the cigar lighter socket that may have blown the fuse in the first pllace.

Check the fuse for that circuit. It is possible that something metal shorted the circuit or something was plugged into the lighter and blew a fuse.

Power mirrors, clock and cigarette lighter won't work


Get your owners manual out and go to the page with fuses and the diagram, look for the fuse marked with one of these items , sometimes there will be multiple equipment packages on the same circuit so when one fuse goes several items quit working ..
good luck

Cigarette lighter does not work 2009 camry I RENTED THIS CAR AND NEED TO USE MY GPS


This is a guess, but I suspect that the rental car company disabled the lighter in an attempt to prevent smoking in the car. Lighter and clock are on the same 15A fuse, I believe. Check the fuse.

Brake light is show up most of the time


Brake lite on? Check master cylinder. Low on fluid. Your front brake pads are probably low also.
Cig lighter/clock/mirror and probably the dome light out too? Check fuses under dash.
Took in for check engine light? What was the code and what did they do?

Cigarette lighter and clock


have you checked to see if it is getting power. If it is just go get a new universal one, and replace it. Also, check inside at the bottum. It could have a dime or penny stuck in the bottum. If it doesn't have power start withthe fuse. You can find the fuse size and location by pulling the fuse box lid. There is a diagram that should tell you where your peticular fuse goes.

Digital clock and cigarette lighter


There are three (3) fuses involved here. The one that is most likely the culprit is the 15A one in the fuse box under the hood, near the battery. Check the underhood fuse box, replace any blown fuses.

The other two fuses (also 15A) are in the interior fuse box, probably left side kick panel.
