Did this video help you?

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

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.
