Question about 2003 Toyota Matrix

1 Answer

I had the same issue on a 2003 Matrix

My granddaughter put paper clips in my lighter outlet and I am having the exact same thing happen also including the windshield washer. I was told there are 2 fuse boxes I found the one under the hood but I am still looking for the second one.

How to repair lighter


Hi jewel,your lighter has 3 parts,fuse in fuse box,always check this first,if good then second part to check is the lighter itself,if you can,remove and try in another vehicles lighter outlet.If it works then lighter outlet at dash is bad,try another lighter in your outlet.You can buy new parts at Autozone,if you need to remove part from dash,remove fuse,there\'s a clip on other side of lighter at dash,you will have to remove clip to remove lighter part.Cut wire,but leave yourself plenty to tie in new lighter,use blue butt connectors and a crimp tool.

On my granddaughter's 2003 - I ran driver's side, electrical seat back, drove the car up the driveway, and parked it. About a week later I tried to start the car but battery was dead. A brand-new, 3-year...


I think you have a short in the seat motor. Doublecheck circuit breaker for electric seats. It has a reset button on it. Perhaps it has tripped. If yes, need to find short in seat.

The lift gate will not open with the release switch on the lift gate


I'm hoping you found an answer to this already, but if not, here it is. Try looking at fuse # 16 in the fuse panel under the driver side dash. It should be a blue 15 Amp fuse & it controls the cigarette lighter & lift gate, amongst other things. My guess is that you will find it has popped & needs to be replaced. It's an easy job to do if you have a fuse holder or a pair of needle nose pliers. Out with the old, in with the new. IMHO, this is a poor deign by Lincoln in the fact that the change holder is right next to the cigarette lighter & if you happen to drop a penny or dime into the lighter/outlet, it pops the fuse. This can be a common problem if you don't keep the lighter in there, & use the outlet for cell phone charger, ipod, etc. This has happened to me a couple times, so I bought a small box of fuses & keep them in the glove compartment now, just in case it should happen while I'm out & about somewhere. Hope this helps!...//TJ

Broke cigerrette lighter power outlet


Just check to see if there is any rust or debris in there. If there is rust in there just use a little sand paper. if not use a rag or paper towel to clean it up. When you plug your phone charger into it you should not have a problem getting it out because the charger end has a spring loaded clip that only holds it in lightly so that it makes contact to ground. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

Radio and cigarette lighter outlet not working on 2003 matrix


There are 2 fuses that powers the radio, cigar lighter, etc.
They are: the 10 amp "GAUGE" and the 15 amp "CIG".
Look under the dash, on the driver side. The "CIG" fuse is the one that you need to replace.
It is in the middle of the fusebox, bottom row. again, a 15 amp fuse.
Please advise if you need additional information.

Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

2003 Jetta VR6 fuse question


you will have to look in your owner's manual or remove the fuse panel cover and it may be labled there, with a position number. you will have to look at the position of the diagram either in the book or on the cover then orientate as you look at the fuse box itself. sometimes they lable the fuses with a number under neath each fuse to give it's location. And yes, I don't see why you can't use a charger for your ipod in the cigarette lighter. it should work just fine, people use that for car chargers for cell phones, and lots of other things. if you don't smoke then you don't need to buy an adapter that has one plug on one end to go into the lighter hole and gives you 2 that you can plug things into it...it's called a two in one adapter.
