What you're going to find is that the 15 amp CIG fuse which is located behind the coin box on the driver side is blown. This provides the memory accessory voltage to the clock and also the cigarette lighter. Make sure there is nothing stuck in the element of the cigarette lighter assembly then replace the fuse and you should be good to go. Let me know what you find.

i replaced the fuse still not working.
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago

Do you have 12 V to the cigarette lighter? If you insert the cigarette lighter element does it glow or if you have a phone accessory and plug it in does the light come on and does your phone charge?

thank you now it is working but when i insert the phone accessory the fuse blown up
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago

Look very carefully down into the socket and make sure nothing is down in there. If everything looks normal then there must be something shorted in your phone cord accessory. Sometimes things get dropped or fall off the end of the adapter for your phone cord and shorts between the insert and a power source. If someone else has another phone cord to try you can do that.
