Just replace the fuse with another one of the same rating. If it blows up again you may have a shorted wire on the wiring harness. Take the car to a good mechanic to have it checked as a shorted wire can be a bit dangerous.

1994 quest cigarete lighter


Lighter sockets are held in by a sleeve that is threaded to the socket.
You can look at a new socket to get a visual. You would need to gain access to the back side of the socket to remove the sleeve and pull the socket out from the front.

Cigarette outlets dont work


It is probably a fuse. If the fuse is ok using a light look inside the of the female part of the lighter and see if it has become rusty or corroded which would keep it from making a connection. Also check the end of the lighter itself fo rthe same problem. If you don't know where the fuse box is located the following link should help.

No power in my cigarette lighter in my 2008 camry


Probably a fuse. Check owner's manual for location fo fuse box. Might be 2 fuse boxes. If you don;t have the owners manual, a stop at the Toyota service dept. should be able to answer your question on where the fuse is.Good Luck

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.

Just lost power to lighter -


These Car Heaters will blow the Fuse or Burn the Hot wire to the Lighter every time. They were never Tested Properly for todays cars. Remove the Lighter and check the wires that go to the Lighter. Get a Flashlight and check the Fuses REALLY Close.
