You need to hold the socket and unscrew the base from it.Do this after you remove the wires off of the socket.Unscrew the base from the rear of the lighter plug.

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.

Cigarette lighter socket came out, no charging


You probably pulled the wiring plug off the back of the socket. Or the fuse went when the socket came out.

Before replacing lighter socket, try gluing it with super glue. Sounds like your only problem is that socket is moving because of broken plastic. Or you can buy aftermarket accessory plugs from autoparts stores and you can get them with up to three outlets for multiple plug ins.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work.  Tried replacing fuse, but fuse is ok.  How do you remove the front centre dashbaord panel to gain access to cigarette lighter wiring on a 2005 Jeep cherokee ?


before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

Cigarette lighter in our 2006 Highlander no longer has power. Is this just a fuse replacement


Could be. Have you checked the owners manual to see where the fuse is and check it? If the fuse is good and the lighter is still not working pull the lighter out and check to make sure the lighter has power. If it does have power then go to your local parts store and buy a new cigarette lighter and install.
