I need some more info on gray wire,is there a fusable link or something causing no power to cig lighter
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 10 months ago.

The grey wire is powered by the 15 amp CIG fuse, which is the 9th fuse socket from the left on the bottom row of the fuse panel under the dashboard.

Let me clarify that you have no power in the grey wire when you remove it from the back of the lighter. Is this correct?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no power to grey wire,there is a good 15 amp fuse.power going in and power going out
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 10 months ago.

The grey wire goes right to the fuse panel. Does this car have a power socket?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no it does not
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 10 months ago.

On some cars, the gewy wire goes into a wire connector with several other wires. It is possible, since you have no power in the grey wire, that the wire has come out of the connector. You would need to trace the gray wire back form the receptacle into the harness to find the connector. then take the connector apart and see if you have power on the side of the connector that is connected to the fuse panel.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
gotcha ,so somewhere between the fuse and the connector there is a problem
