Did this video help you?

Nun Ya: Checked fuse for cig lighter, it's good. Removed insulating washer, charger still doesn't work. Any other ideas?

M Wilson: how do you put it inside is this one piece that's larger than the other and then leave the two side square holes do they stay on the side or the bottom?

Simon Presnell: Brilliant. My lighter blew years ago due to an air compressor. My kids bought me a dash cam so had to find a way to fix. Went to local auto parts store who sold me a universal socket that's "100% compatible". Not. Agree with others as to not use it for anything other than small loads (phone charging, dashcams, etc). Google your car to find out how to take out the dash to get to the lighter. Someone will have an answer. Many thanks.

Derogatory Name: Lmao at this hack job

rkgsd: I strongly suggest replacing the the whole cigarette lighter socket and Stay Bezel. The dealer part is cheaper than expected. Faulty lighters are one of the top causes of vehicle fires.

PetrocelliPete: Dude, you just bypassed a "TEMPERATURE" fusible link. Now if your lighter gets stuck for some reason inside the receptacle, your dash will melt and catch on fire since your fuse in the fuse box will not be exceeded, and the temperature fusible link that you bypassed is missing. Would not recommend this to anyone. You seem like a smart kid, just be a bit more cautious. Better yet, just take down this video before somebody sues you man. Cheers.

crk cab: Thank you !

noobie noblox: please answer my mate put metal in one

Jerry Villatoro: crap to down it worked for me 🙌🏻

JoceyVDV: My car charger got stuck in there

Jakob Felan: Hey man awesome video! Much thanks to you sir this fixed my outlet in less than 5 minutes and now it works like a charm #WhoNeedsSafetyFeatures haha

Jay Tarro: This problem happened on my 95 Camry. The 12V cigarette power suddenly went off while using an air compressor. The problem wasn't a blown fusible link. The link wasn't making a good contact with its crimped connector. The plastic insulator on the link looked distorted like the link might have been melted but it wasn't blown. I re-crimped the link and it worked ok.

The link is silver colored and appears to be aluminum. It's about 0.04 inch diameter and is solid, not stranded. I bent the end of it twice and a short section of it cracked off. This is consistent with aluminum which lacks ductility compared with copper and is known to not make good electrical connections.

The problem with such a fusible link is that it can fail when needed the most, such as when using a compressor on the roadside or trying to run a cell phone, It's not easy to fix on the spot. Bypassing the link and relying on the 15A cigarette fuse seems to be a more reliable approach.

Soonmush: why you didn't install a fuse?

Pravardhan Udaya Simhaa: You could have installed a small fuse between the metal connections...?

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

NYFMA: Thanks for the video. This fix (removing insulator) is exactly what they recommend on toyotanation.
I have successfully removed the lighter trim assembly (thanks to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIwToeeTQJ0 ) but now have to find a tool small enough to remove the nut. You are lucky you had such a small socket, I will have to use a needle nose pliers. Either way I should be good soon. BTW I fried my link by running a tire pump air compressor with the engine running. Bad idea as this is a bit more than 12 volts - usually around 13.4.

Cesar Saldivar: mine looks exactly like that one but I can't find it anywhere to buy it
