    Hilux issues

    Noticed a cig USB adapter plug I have plugged into my cig socket wasn't working the other day (light wasn't on to say power was going to it)

    Anyway pushed on it and heard a pop.
    Fuse blew. No worries replaced 10 amp fuse. Cig plug works but now I have no display (nav or audio) , interior lights won't work, my traction control light stays on and cannot use keyless entry have to unlock with key.
    Otherwise the vehicle runs fine.

    I am assuming another fuse and have looked at the manual but all the faults don't line up with a particular fuse.

    I have pulled every fuse I could reach and they all appear fine.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Toyota's seem to have a thing for the cig plug playing up 4/5 of Toyota's I have had all got issues as they got older.

    And yet I would still prefer a Toyota.... Sorry not much help!

    A bit of a guess but there’s a light on the socket surround that will be on the interior light circuit. I’ll have a google to see what I can find.

    Checked it. 7.5 amp? It looked fine but will replace it tomorrow and see what happens.
    I have tried uncle Google as well and I am 8 hour drive from home.
    It must have a short somewhere as well.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    I was led to believe Hilux's never break, never mind as the salesman said to me "they have better resale value"
