Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Cigarette lighter and door mirror adjustment won't work - reason to believe a blown fuse. Checked the fuses under the hood, and they all read 0 ohms. Where could other fuses be, or could there be a different problem?

Check under the dash to the left of the steering column. (You may have to remove a plastic cover.) Using a test light (grounded) with a sharp point touch the metal contacts on each side of the fuse. Both sides should light the test light on a live circuit.

    Follow up to my previous post - check the element on the lighter. It is not uncommon for a collection of ashes on the element to melt and short out the coils causing the fuse to blow each time the lighter is pushed in. A new element may be purchased for less than $5 - or picked up at a junk yard where most yards won't even charge.

2000 Nissan Frontier Cigarette lighter not working while I use tire compresser using,


Tire compressor probably draws too much current for the socket. Are you sure it is a cigarette lighter socket? Some sockets are just to provide accessories 12v. Did a cigarette lighter come with this socket? True cigarette lighter sockets are generally fused at 25 or 30 Amps

My control for my mirrors does not work.i have checked the fuses but cannot see the fuse for the mirrorsin the car fuse panel pr the fuse box under the hood.? MY CAR IS A NISSAN TERRANO 2.7 TDI SE TOURING...


In some vehicles, the fuse that controls the external mirrors is the same fuse that looks after the Cigarette lighter, and in some models the car radio.

If your cigarette lighter is not working check all of the fuses individually to find the blown one. Also on the rear of some cigarette lighters there is a fusable link type fusing wire. This has a wire similar to the older type house fuses, this melts when a short circuit occurs. When this happens the circuit is not complete. This type of lighter is found on some Toyota's and may have made it's way into Nissan's as well. Can't hurt to check it out.

Power door locks on a 2004 chevy tahoe don't work


The door locks on my 1999 tahoe stopped working and I checked the fuse, which was fine. The problem turned out to be that the fuse for my cigarette lighter was bad and for some reason it also must be working in order for the door locks to work. Put in a new cigarette lighter fuse and the door locks worked again!
