I got a 1990 Lexus from my dads friends dad. Every things great with the car except that after using my phone charger without problem, ( in both cigarette lighters). All of a sudden they both lost power. I checked the fuses but they are okay. What else could it be and how to do I fix? Thanks ; )

    Hi Roy, Thanks for your reply. Do you mean in the car charger itself? Because I tried the charger in my friends car and it worked fine.

    There is a blue 15 amp fuse in the fuse box marked CIG feeds both lighters with power, inside car under dash steering column side.

    i checked it and it was good....I read in the book something about maybe checking the fusible link. Does that sound right?
