Most likely a fuse, or a faulty lighter.

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.

I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla the cigarette lighter does not work after using a small portable heater but the radio does I have check the fuse in the driver side kick panel it is fine there's there another...


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.

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

2001 Avalon cigarette lighter has no power, 5A fuse is okay, instrument panel works, although I think the light for the glove compartment is also out


There are 2 common problems for this, 1 is the power connecting wire to the lighter housing falls off, or if the wire is connected and has power, the lighter unit itself has an internal open circuit and needs to be replaced.

you could be lucky and the fuse blew, and it could be a burned wire, check the fuse panel and replace the fuse if blown, if it blows again you have to fix the wires, and possible the cigarette lighter if it got damaged

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.

Cigarette lighter plug not working


hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out.  No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again.  worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.
