I have a very strange electrical problem with a 1995 Toyota Camry. I bought
one of those heavy duty air compressors that can plug into the 12V cigarette
lighter receptacle. I plugged it into the cigarette ligher receptacle of my
Camry and about 3/4 of the way through filling the tire the compressor
stopped. At first I thought it was the compressor but later troubleshot it
to be the cigarette lighter. I immediately checked the radio/cigarette
fuse and that was fine! The radio works no problem! I am guessing it is a
Now here's an interesting twist. I also noticed that my sunroof is not
as well. So perhaps (with the factory installed sunroof) the fuse is in
location for those models? Any other suggestions on fuses or circuit
I was thinking of replacing the cigarette lighter receptacle but with the
roof not working now I am not so sure....
BTW, if it does come down to replacing the cigarette lighter receptacle are
there better alternatives since I am using it primarily as a 12V power
Any suggestions regarding this would also be very much appreciated!!!!
