Replace it. they are sold at dealers and at parts stores. dealer item will go in easier, plug will match, but will be more expensive.

Toyota Corolla seca1998 radio/cig not working, replaced fuse for cig and it has worked but for no more than a minute or 2, keeps blowing. Assuming it's something to do with a shortage between the cig fuse...


hi there. ok what I advise is to simply disconnect the cig lighter, then replace fuse and turn on stereo. this will tell you which is causing the problem. if fuse blows its the stereo if fuse is good then its the cig lighter. you may have had a child etc put coins in the slot thinking it a slot machine...ive been there before but sadly it was only pennies....they rattle around in the stereo and hit electrical parts. also look into the cig lighter hole and see if a coin or similar stuck down there bridging the sides with the bottom... simply use your finger to check this and not a screwdriver to short it again.

hope this helps you.

Sounds Like You Have An Exposed Hot Wire Somewhere. I Would Try And Change Cig Lighter Wiring Harness. Be Sure And Check Your Aux Outlets So That There Are No Exposed Wires. They All Run On The Same Fuse Hope This Helps!!

Cigarette lighter blowing fuses


some cig lighter outlets have a U shaped + center pin.
Sometime yer plug's - will engage it. ooops . Look for the two sides of the U and mark the edge of the outlet with red nail polish. Then when inserting the plug with a side pin, orient it away from the paint. Keep more fuses in the glove box

Number 3 fuse blows,why??


what ever operates off fuse # 3 is shorting out, you will need to find out what runs off this fuse and then find which system in that fuse is causing the short, for example, lets say that #3 fuse operates the radio, cig lighter and the rear defroster, you would disconnect the radio and then install a fuse, if fuse blows then you know its not the radio thats causing it so then you unhook the cig lighter and see if the fuse still blow if it does then you know its not the lighter, and so on until you find the system thats causing it. good day.

Why cigarette lighter does not work?


80 Series cig lighters have a fuse and a thermal couple, as do most cig lighters. The fuse will blow if too much current is drawn but if an acceptable but high current is drawn for a long period the thermal couple may blow.
Note: the thermal couple can not be replaced like a fuse.

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

Try checking the fuse inside the charger. Ths may be blown. Have you tried another charger in its place ex. cell phone or radar detector? If works for the cig lighter should charge.
