  • Cigarette plug fuse

    I have no power through the cigarette plug so I have either blown a fuse or a wire has come off. Im thinking it would be a fuse. Does anyone know where the fuse is? I’ve checked under the bonnet and inside the glove box on the left they all are ok but I can’t see any that says something like cig plug on them

    Is it just the one cigarette outlet without power? I had just the rear cigarette lighter without power, which I only discovered when I went to plug in my fridge. Took it into Toyota and they had forgotten to reconnect it at some point, same with heating another time.

      ciggy sockets are fed from 3 sources - P/OUTLET No 1 , P/OUTLET No 2 , ( both 15A )and the ACC fuse ( 5A ) which controls the relay. just to make it more complicated there is a small Black L shaped fusible link on the back of each socket.

      I learnt about the little fusible link many many years ago , after not being able to find why power was at the back of the socket and not in the socket . Had to pull the whole interior panel out to access the socket. So nowadays each one i come across i replace the fusible link with a conventional blade fuse holder , wired to a more convienient access point.

        I was told that the internal fuse-able link is for heat, so the socket will turn off if something overheats in there.

      do you know where the power outlet 1 fuse is? i found power outlet 2 in the main fuse block under the bonnet which is the only 15 amp in there and i looked at the 2 fuse blocks inside the glovebox on the left side. Please don't tell me I'm blind

        there are 3 fuse blocks behind the glovebox , the one containing that fuse is the one that faces downwards , has a white cover. look from underneath you will see it

          I took a photo of each fuse panel and laminated the photos and keep a copy in the glovebox. Its pretty silly that the fuse layouts are not in the owners manual.

            thanks white one it was the 15amp fuse for power outlet 1 under the white cover fuse block from underneath. I didn't know about that one.

            Strangely enough it blew from having the hema plugged in on a trip.

            I don't have any of these type of fuses i have a little kit from super cheap auto which has the normal blade fuses and some mini blade fuses but even the mini blade fuses look bigger. I grabbed the 15 amp spare fuse from the fuse block under the bonnet to put in. Do you know what the name is for these fuses i could look on eBay?

              they are micro blade fuses , mini blades will fit and work ok but maybe you wont be able to put the cover back on. micros are a lower profile version of a mini.

                Thanks for your clear instructions. I spent a very unhappy hour trying to find the fuse, now replaced and all good.

                yeah they can be hard to find , and even harder to pull out. I carry some small pliers in the glovebox just in case
