if the fuses are good and the lighter element is good but no power, you probably have a burnt lighter assembly. there is a fusible link behind the assy, where you push the lighter in, you gotta remove it and see if it burned, probably is, replace it. good luck.

How do you change a cigarette lighter in a Toyota Avalon?

In my 96 Avalon there is a screw in the outside bottom of the ashtray cover that when removed exposes the lighter. I did not discover it until after I had forced the entire ashtray past the stops by pushing on the stops with a screwdriver. I knew that was not correct, but it did work just fine and I was able to reattach my lighter which had come loose and kept blowing fuses.

How do you fix a cigarette lighter that will not work on a 1995 Toyota Avalon when the fuse is fine?

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.
