Question about 1998 Lexus ES 300
My cigarette lighter won't power up anything, cell phone, gps. Could the fuse be the problem and if so where is it located. Please help
I had the same problem on my '97. I ended up taking out the lighter when I was replacing the LCD on the radio, only to find that somehow it had become disconnected. Not sure how it happened but it might be worth checking out to see if it wiggled loose. To get to the lighter: 1) Prior up the cover by the shifter (the one that also goes back to the seat heater). It is connected with snaps so pry slowly. 2) Once the panel is removed you will see screws that are holding in the ash tray/cig lighter. Unscrew those and the whole lighter/ash tray can be pulled out. It is also held in by snaps on the top.

Being a Lexxus the cig lighter might be a very slight different size than the plugs you are trying to use. Does the lighter work to light cigarettes (or does it glow hot after being pushed in)? If it works then it's not the fuse. If it doesn't work, try the inner fuse box-the fuse box is located to the bottom left of the steering wheel behind the little change drawer.
