With your vehicle parked and not running, remove the fuse box cover lid and on the back side of it is a diagram. Locate the fuse that controls the "ACC" or "CIG" on that diagram and replace it. If there is no diagram on cover lid then pull each fuse out "one by one" and look for a burned or blown out fuse or use a fuse tester (avalible at your local auto parts srore) Replace it with the same colored fuse

    Thanks, that's one way to do it. So, do you know how I can find which fuse is the one for the cigarette lighter? I can't find it anywhere but perhaps you have seen this issue before?

    Michael,



    I tried that solution and it didn't work. There is a diagram on the back of the fuse box however, just locating which fuse is the issue. Do you know how I can find out which fuse is the one causing the issue with both the cigarette lighter, and the 12v power charger inlet next to it? thanks.

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.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work


There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

I try to find cigarette filter to replace the filter because my cigarette lighter doesn't work ( Toyota Camary LE 2000). I couldn't find it Thank you Somsak


Do you mean that you are looking for the fuse? The fuse for the cigarette lighter is located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. it is marked "CIG". It is a 15 Amp fuse

NOTE: This fuse also powers your clock, air bag sensor assembly, remote control mirror switch and your shift lock. If this fuse is blown, you will also have problems with these items.

Your vehicle is also equipped with an auxilliary power outlet (Which looks the same as the cigarette lighter socket) it is powered by the fuse marked "*1" If this fuse is blown, only the power outlet will not work. This also is a 15 Amp fuse. (See picture below)

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.

2006 Toyota Tacoma, power outlet/cig lighter not working


I am not sure about "fusible link", But the suggeation I can give you is to open dash or where the outlet is located and check the wires in the back of outlet with a light tester.

Radio and cigarette lighter do not get power


The fuse you are looking for might be in the fuse box under the hood. I think on or about page 203 of the owners manual it will show the locations of the fuse boxes. The one under the dash is a little tricky. Just figure out what by looking at the pattern of the fuse lay out. You are looking for a 15 amp(blue) fuse I believe.

After you fix that I would recomend using the power outlet. I believe there are 2. One just in front of the shifter and the other in the center armrest storage box.

No power to cigarette lighter/power outlet (front & rear)..


Replace the 15 amp ACC fuse that is in the fusebox under the dash. See if this eliminates your problem.

Fuses


The cigarette lighter is controlled by the 15 amp ACC fuse. This same fuse allows the Power Outlet Relay to power up. I would think that this fuse is your issue. Hope this helps, and Thanks for selecting FixYa to solve your question.
