Sounds like you may have a broken or otherwise disconnected power wire or improper ground - behind the cigarette lighter,. you will have to poke around to find the way to get behind it, once you do you will most likely find your problem

    Thanks so much for the quick response. I will have to figure out how to get under the dash to check that out. I do have another quirky issue going on with the car. When I open the driver door my dome light doesn't turn on. It turns on when I open the passenger door though. My headlights used to turn off automatically as well if I left them on and this stopped working as the same time as the dome light issue. So, I'm assuming they are associated some how.

    possible connection there, but I think it's another problem -- the switch in the drivers side door may be malfunctioning..
    perhaps a long shot - have you any hungry rodents in your area where they may be chewing on the wiring of your auto?

    How would I check that? No ideal on where to find the "switch." Not aware of any rodents having chewed anything. I don't see where they could have gotten in to chew it.

  • Carl Kay Mar 14, 2011

    sorry -- the door light switch is typically on the front of the door jam - it could be on the rear of the door where it meets up with the jam when it is closed. you'll probably have to fiddle around with it to get it out.,. test it and or replace it. I'm pretty certain this is where you will find the solution to that problem.
    PS> Glad to hear there's no rodent issue!

check the wiring on the back of the lighter, center hot plug, side ground spade. make sure both are clean and tight.

check to make sure you can see contacts inside of cigarette lighter, just in case a small piece of plastic didn't fall/melt inside.
a new socket is inexpensive.

check to see if power is going to the cig, outlets. I believe on the camry there is a 2nd fuse for lighter outlets. it is marked as power point " A" fuse located in fuse box. it should be a 15 amp fuse. good-day !! top row.

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter in a 1999 toyota camry and what could be potential reasons why it doesnt work


A good thing to check to see if it's just a fuse is try your external mirrors to see if they move, they work off the same fuse as the lighter.

If it is a fuse, and if you are in Australia then the fuse box is next to the drivers right knee area, In America, then next to their left knee. There is also a fusible link built into some cigarette lighters, mine has one. When it blew, the auto electrician was able to resolder the link and get me going again until I could buy a new lighter.

Hope this helps.

The cigarette lighter does not work on my 1997 Toyota Camry. Where is the fuse for the lighter?


it wil be located in the fuse box, the fuses should be listed on the box or inside the box and again in your owners manual. If you can not locate this way you will need to pull each fuse till you find the burnt fuse replacing with the same amperage fuse. Cigarette lighters can and do go bad, if you find no burnt fuses the lighter can be bad. This can be checked with any 12 volt plug accessory. Good luck.

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.

Cigarette/radio is a 15amp fuse located in the panel, middle row, bottom fuse. Basically you have 3 colums and 4 rows of fuses in there.

Digital clock and cigarette lighter


There are three (3) fuses involved here. The one that is most likely the culprit is the 15A one in the fuse box under the hood, near the battery. Check the underhood fuse box, replace any blown fuses.

The other two fuses (also 15A) are in the interior fuse box, probably left side kick panel.
