Cigarette lighter shorts out when I plug in a car charger

Asked by Apr 14, 2016 at 02:04 PM about the 2007 Lexus RX 350 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I plugged in a new car charger into my cigarette lighter and the cigarette
lighter stopped working.  I plugged the same charger into a friend's lighter and
his also stopped working.  Obviously it's a defective charger, but how do I fix
the problem?  Is it just a blown fuse?  If so, where is this fuse located?

Replace the 15 amp fuse. Check the owners manual there are more than 1 fuse box. Fuse is located in the fuse box on the lower left side of the instrument panel.
