Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

Cigarette lighter sockets no power

I have a 2002 V6 Camry LE. Not sure when it happened. I found out that the 12V/120W sockets (known as cigarette lighter) have no power.
I changed the 15A fuse already, and still no power.
Is there another fuse controlling these sockets (one under the radio and one inside the arm rest compartment?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

    After further troubleshooting, another fuse also controls these 12V/120W sockets. It is labeled as Power Point A fuse located at the top row, the most right hand side fuse.

    I replaced the fuse (15A) and all 12V/120W sockets now have power.

    The cigarette lighter in my 95 Camry (US) stopped working. The fuse is good, and the radio works. What is the next step in finding the reason?

    I have a Toyota Camery 2004 and the 2 12V power outlets have no power. I pulled out the fuse "CIG" and it is good. Thanks to Brian Wong's note, I learnt there is 2nd fuse and I pulled that one out, it was blown. It is replaced now.

Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

    There is a fusible link (small wire) on the back of the cigarette lighter socket that gets blown and requires removing the socket from the dash to fix.

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.

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

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)

1995 camry wagon cigarette lighter not working

start with a test light and check for power at the center of the cigarette lighter socket. If power is good, then check for ground at side of lighter socket.
If no power, run wire from power wire of lighter to power wire of stereo, thus tapping the power directly and bothering to trace out where the open int he circuit may be.
