For the heater fan-yes the fuse and fusible link are under the hood
for the cig lighter-no only the 15A cig/radio fuse power it

Hi,
Check your owner's manual if you have one. It will tell you the locations of your fuse boxes.
On my '03 corolla, there is a small enclosed one to the left of my steering wheel, under the dash. Maybe yours is in the same location. hope this helps...
Good luck!

Yes there is also a fuse box under the hood. The schematic for fuses should be in the fuse box cover.

Plugged a heater/fan into cig lighter socket rather than 12v socket and cd &dvd player won't work.I know where my fuse box is but don't know which fuses I should look to replace. 2005 CRD plus Voyager


Could be more than one fuse when the lighter stops working.Under the hood remove the cover on the fuse box and with the key on check all fuses with a test light.The 2 fuses that may be blown are closer to the driver end of the fuse box,but check all.One will be blown for sure.

I ran a small tire pump from the ciarette lighter, it pumped some then stopped.Now the cig lighter doesnt work. My neighbor offered to help . his car did the same thing. I checked the fuse under the dash...


Try replacing the fuse with another of the same size eg 10amp. While you are under there check other fuses. The label is not always correct on Australian Toyotas, could be the same in your country.
If the fuse is blown, there is a short in the pump. Throw it away as it has blown the fuses in both vehicles. (yours and the neighbors)
Next time you are at a spare parts supplier buy yourself a cheap (usually under $10.00) LED computer safe test light. These are easy to use. It has a earth lead with a clip on the end and a probe on the other end that you touch to the fuse and see if it lights up the LED bulb.
First you connect the earth lead to a good earth, the ignition key while in the ignition is usually a good earth or a bolt that goes into the vehciles body. (You need a good earth)
Then you just touch the probe end to one side of the fuse and see if it lights up. If not you touch the other end of the same fuse and it should light up.
If only one end is lighting up the testers bulb the fuse is broken. (Yes it can look fine but be still broken)
If both ends don't light up move the earth lead to a bolt on the vehicle and recheck also check other fuses to make sure your have a good earth.
Tip, Some fuses only work with the ignition turned on while other work all the time.
You can also check the cig lighter with the test light. after checking the fuse is Ok
Again find a good earth bolt and attach the earth lead and place probe end into centre of empty cig lighter and it should light up the bulb. Becareful to to touch the side at the same time as this is the earth for the cig lighter.

Replace CIG. LIGHTER fuse on passenger side under dash fuse box. On some vehicles it is also called PWR. OUTLET fuse. The fuse schematic is on the inside part of the fuse box cover.

1991 Accord, stereo stolen, now no heater fan or cig lighter


while snagging your tunes, these guys may have disconnected a ground wire, pull out the heater fuse, check to see if 12v is getting to the fuse at box, if so and the fuse is good,it's a ground or switch issue,they probably have a book on your car at the library with the wiring diagram, they have a copier too
