bogeytu: Did this on my 97' Lexus LS 400 ashtray lighter and center console power port inside arm rest. also had to replace the burnt out 15 amp fuse from the fuse box under the hood labeled (TEL). That's the one for the center console power port inside arm rest. I guess it stands for telephone for when they had car phones.
Russell Ngataki: Thank mate! My car lighter hasn't been working for 3 years until now. One big Thumbs Up to you
Cesar Saldivar: mine looks exactly like that one but I can't find it anywhere to buy it
merlin72572: My god your voice is so boring and thanks for showing people how to burn their car out,
butchtropic: Great vid IF your issue is with a Toyota, USELESS for GM, Ford.
Touring life: Thanks for sharing, didn't work for my camry. Both my cigarette lighter and 12v plugs are out. All fuses are good.
NaysayersGonnaNaysay: Great video. your voice was irritating as freak during some parts. but thanks
Fred Corey: Thank you for taking the time to share this fix! It worked perfect to repair my cigarette lighter. I also blew it using a portable air compressor.
Jay Gill: Thanks man, very clear and descriptive. I was going to replace the fuse with a wire which would've done the same thing except 10x the work.
Ray Wright: okay great, but how do you get this part OUT OF THE CAR??
Unknown: Looked like that wire was serving some type of safety purpose. Not sure what since it looked like only a wire. I'd just replace the socket. You can buy those sockets pretty cheap. Mine are 4 dollars OEM. To each his own I guess.
DrFlippin: just wondering if by removing the insulating washer and putting the 12v socket into 'constant on' position, whether this will lead to draining the battery if the car is parked for a few days?
Will Jordan: Cool thanks great fix
g moon: Thx Dude very helpful, you rock...
CzarPeppers: I just replaced my cigarette lighter, and it was working perfectly fine as a cigarette light until I plugged a charger in and it blew. It made a popping sound, but the fuse was still fine. Now when I put the cigarette lighter in it still heat up but doesn't pop out, I have to pull it out myself before it gets too hot. Seems like its warped or something.
Diya Zee: My question is what tipped you off that you need to remove the entire thing out from your car, and also where did you get the correct tools to disassemble the socket? Thank you! Very informative
5000nate: you must have your lighter is working but it's not producing enough power into my phone right now it seems not to be working correctly since I got my stereo installed
Mani Rajaram: say anyone with a pontiac montana...have problems with the rear cigarette light charger..?
Noah Barnhart: theres a fuse protecting you from too too high of a load. that fuseable link is for over heating. you should be fine as far as using too many amps as long as there is a fuse. i wouldnt trust that outlet with a lighter in it.
Jose Miranda: yo instale un cigarette ligher socket universal en la parte de atras del descansa braso de una toyota tacoma. y cuando le pongo el USB CHARGER me funde los fusibles de 15a. Que estoy haciendo mal
