Derek Kifer: Use a flathead screwdriver and gently but firmly pry up in the top two side corners about an inch down from the top. You may have to go back and forth until the clips spring free
Derek Kifer: Awesome and thanks! I was having hell trying to figure out how to get the whole assembly out.
whybbob: check the fuse inside the fuse panel (should be in you dash somewhere). the fuse that protects the radio and clock has probably blown
eduardo carranco: hope u can help me whit a problem i try to clean my cigarrette lighter n accidently i touch it whit the screwdriver n some b wrong my stereo turn off in the same problem whit the clock i got a corolla 2001
Saderdanjiel: Great video. I had the same problem, caused by a portable air compressor. The link was melted between two of the bronze clamps. Checked the fuse and it was good.
I removed the insulating washer and it led to the fuse being blown right away. I had to replace the washer, the fuse, and insert a bent paper clip to bridge the link. Annoying as heck but it did the trick.
Jay Alvarez: my 09 corolla doesn't work.. no short.. everything is connected.. an fuse is good.. maybe the entire socket is fried
crystalbluep: Fixed my Acura RL using this technique! I can't believe it! Thanks a bunch! Removing the trim around the cig lighter and shifter....use a credit card to slip under the trim a bit and pry it up a little with the cred card; then slip your fingers under and lift little by little carefully.
John Parker: Nice way to fix the car cigarette lighter
whybbob: Remove the ash tray completely, then start pulling the dash trim where the ash try used to be. If you start there, you can do it by hand and do not need any tools. Refer to where my right thumb is at 0:30. Good luck!
giantAsFan: How do you remove the faceplate
giantAsFan: Please show in VID how to remove trim cover without breaking it
George Lee: Looks like those Japanese cars have bad electrics.
Jstyle7789: This sounds like the right solution to my toyota celica; fuses are good but hasn't worked for years. I am about to try it tomorrow :)
By the way, using this method is it possible to charge a laptop?
aurorafromchihuas: Hello i just moved to a new city n dnt know anyone that.might be able to fix it. So my question is if i take it sumwhere to fix it how much should i be paying the person?? Is a 08 mazda 6 thank you
Saulo De Tarzo: IT WORKS .... IT WORKS..... IT REALLY WORKS....... I JUST DID IT 10 MINUTES AGO ON MY 92 COROLLA ...
kevin chan: thanks for the video, my lighter just broke from air compressor, going to try fixing it, hopefully I wont break anything else.
trancendent: Thanks for the vid. My cigarette lighter stopped working and kept burning out the fuses in my car. Removed the little washer and it's working just like new. Is it still safe to use a splitter to power my devices? Just a cell phone charger and radar detector.
Joseph Wheeler: They're designed to pull 12V, which is what this puts out. You'll be fine.
Aaron Smedley: Ahh my goodness, thank you, man... all fixed!. 2001 camry here, cigarette lighter hasn't worked for years either.
stix1990899: WHAT ambout a MP3 converter??????

larainergranq: Would you like reduced insurance costs? Study our useful report which makes clear how you can cut back hundreds per month on your insurance fees!
Kelly Olivares Gonzalez: Thank you so much! I have a 96 Toyota Celica and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Seriously I'm a chick and it was really simple. I appreciate your post.
Jack Le: If that's me, I'd just drop a drop of lead on the gap.
chris23pao: Do it! It's exactly the same! (I own the same car as you...)
chris23pao: My dear friend, THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH for that post! You solved my problem!!! I own a AE 101 Corolla sedan (1992-1997early) and I had exactly the same problem... I followed step by step your guide in the video and it works just fine!
BTW, for the people that asking if it's the same... Y E S it is exactly the same with the Camry!!!
Thanks a lot again and many many greetings from Athens, GREECE to all of you...
Nick Fewtrell: what year of corolla? i have a 1993 model and debating whether to do it or not?
MrGBoy85: Thank you!!!!!!! It works like a charm
ScopeyeZ: Go buy a new one from SuperCheap - If you're aussie that is. If not, any automotive store
ScopeyeZ: You have to first get off the dash "fascia". To do this, unclip your smoke tray (if you have one) and there will be 2 screws there, then the rest just needs some clipping out, be gentle! Then just figure out however to get out the cigarette lighter, make sure you don't break the seal that's on top that blends with the dash, you can destroy everything else though :) Once you do that, go to super cheap and buy a new one, re install and plug in!
Betty Aguilera: hi
I have a 95 toyota how do uc have a step by step on how to take out the cig lighter.
whybbob: never had any problems with this fix, sold the car last year tho
Robbie Robinson: Remember they're been in cars for at least 50 years. Everybody smoked in the 50s and 60s, so that's why cars havw laways had them. Like Bob, because most people have given up: the ash tray became a drw to put coins in, etc The ligher socket is now used as a power point. Adapter for to run TVs, electric jugs and a million other things have been around since the 60s, especially for campers.
Seeeewin: Thanks whyybbob i tried your way and it works!!! lol made a video too!
EliteDekaronA9: or go to auto zone and buy a new one for $4.96
FantastyckplastycK: eeeeeewwww toyota camry, it should've melted down entirely
ch21spy: thank you! i just fixed my lighter in a corolla! have you experience any problems?
ch21spy: have you had any problems with the fix?
wetlknbouteskimos: How common is a failure ?
Bob McElligott: Great information. I would not have recognized that coated wire as a fuse. But my dad's Lexus lighter has no power coming to the lighter. Both fuses (undwer dash and behind lighter as shown here) are fine. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Bob
MrPjabi: thanx for help
blackey negro: His car later cought fire for that one little pices xp
badguy66626: same crap happened to me, stupid air compressor messed up my cigarette lighter.
dario9493: u just stick cigarette in car lighter hole and it lights it up
whybbob: no problem. forgot to mention, make sure you open the tray first before you start pulling at it. good luck.
crxracer805: Oh sweet, thanks for your help
whybbob: the tray snaps into a hinge, its designed to be removed when necessary. just pull at it upwards and outwards at the same time. do one side first, then the other.
crxracer805: How do I pull it out without breaking it?
