Default 2001 GS430 Power Supply & Cigarette Lighter Fuse

Hey CL memebers

I have a 2001 Lexus GS430 and the power supply outlet and the cigarette lighter doesn't work at all. Like, if i use a iphone car charger to it, it won't charge my phone. I've been having a tough time looking for the fuse box to check the fuse to see if it needs to be replaced, and I cannot find it.

Can anyone help me by telling where i can look exactly so I can check? and if it is not the fuse. What else could be the problem?

Thanks a lot!

Mine was doing the same exact thing. I removed the whole ash tray assembly and removed the tiny nut from behind the lighter. Mine was just dirty. I put it all back and it works great. You'll need to remove the little panel on the back of the ash tray. It's very easy.

Remove that nut but be careful because there is a tiny washer there too. I just made sure everything was cleaned.
