Q: where can I go to fix my cigarette lighter? on 2003 Lexus ES300

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
cigarette lighter went out about a month ago, within a week, I went to the orland park Illinois dealership to get it repaired. within minutes they changed a fuse, and I was gone, 2-3 days later I put in a device, my GPS, or my phone charge, and it stopped working again. I called orland park, and brought it back, within mins, it worked, a day or so later, it stopped again. I told them the first time, instead of a fuse, it could be the wiring, they seem to not listen, can you suggest another place, or can I go back to orland and insist on them looking at the wiring? I already paid $80 for nothing

IF the fuse keeps blowing AND it happens AFTER you plug in whatever device to the power outlet , then STOP USING that device!! MANY adapters for the power outlets are not compatible and/or could be faulty.Seen it to many times!!Carry extra fuses and learn HOW to replace it.
if they charged you $80 to change a fuse I would take it back there and tell them there must be a short somewhere probably in the lighter itself and make sure they fix it right and that this is the third time there...
