It could be that the lighter coil is burnt out. The coils are replacable and do burn out with use.

My 96 Avalon had the same problem. I took it to a Toyota dealer to get it checked out. The Lighter itself had to be replaced. It is a pretty big job, as alot of the dash has to be removed. With the parts, it cost a little less than $250.00.

My'95 did the same thing. Apparently the lighter had worked itself loose and shorted out on some change from the coin tray nearby. The repair is NOT difficult. Remove the ashtray/drawer assembly: Looking closely, you will notice a tab on either side of the drawer that prevents its removal. With a screwdriver, carefully pry between the drawer and the area with tab, and the assembly will come completely out. You can now replace the failed lighter.
