  3. I've managed to get by without the use of the cigarette lighter socket in my mk6 Fiesta for a while now, but need it to plug in a sat nav for a long journey. It's an ex police pool car, so the lighter socket has been disconnected and it appears that the wiring has been moved near the blowers to accommodate a computer of some sort. I still have the lighter socket; is it just a case of connecting the red and black wires to the pins on the underside of the socket? I don''t mind it dangling out of the dash at all - just need it to work! Any advice would be much appreciated.
  4. Would someone be able to tell me what fuses they are for a 2002 ka? As my cigarette lighter don't work but don't know what fuse number it is?
  5. Hi, I am the happy owner of a 59 plate focus! - Collecting it at the end of the week. I would like to know how easy it would be to fit a dash cam to the car. After witnessing many nutcases on the road, I would like to make sure I am covered in the future. I used to have a fiesta and found it very easy to remove the passenger window pillar. Is it as easy on the focus or will there be air bags? I will need to run a power cable from the rear view mirror round the passenger side, down into the dash and then if possible, I would need an additional cigarette lighter socket behind the dash. I would rather not have it plugged in to my existing two. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
  6. Hi All, I am trying to install a new cigarette lighter, and need to know how many/which bits I need to unscrew/take apart to do this. I just have the hole/cutout where the new one slots into, but don't know about the wiring. I've never taken apart the gear stick/rubber bit etc, so don't know where/how to start. Any help would be appreciated. Regards,
  7. Hi I've just bought a fiesta 1.25 zetec, 2011, and the cigar lighter/24v power outlet doesn't work. I want to use it for charging my phone. I've checked the fuses and they seem fine. I know that the phone and charging cable works fine anywhere else, so I know it's something to do with the car. Any ideas please
  8. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!
  9. I run a car camera from my 13 reg Fiesta's power socket and it's a fit-and-forget device because it's powered by the socket that's only live when the ignition's turned on. I thought all modern cars were wired this way, but my friend's new Focus has a power socket that's powered all the time - so to start and stop his little camera he has the hassle of remembering to plug and unplug the power plug for each journey. Is this the way the socket is supposed to be wired?
  10. Cigar Lighter Broken

    Hi all, I have recently bought a 2001 1.25 Ford Fiesta Ghia 16V but the cigar lighter doesn't work and the door ajar light stays on whenever the ignition or engine is turned on (I have checked all the doors). Any ideas as to what might be causing this? Initially I thought it might be a blown fuse for the cigar lighter but that wouldn't explain the door ajar light being constantly on... Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
  11. Hello, I have recently bought a 2010 Ford Fiesta Edge. The 12V socket (by the handbrake/aux socket) is seemingly not working. The fuse (passenger compartment no. 22) was missing, but replacing this with the correct 20A fuse didn't help at all. I have looked at the Haynes manual but can't find a suitable wiring diagram to search for the sockets earthing point etc. Any ideas as to what is wrong/what to check next? Not currently a huge problem, just bugging me having something that doesn't work Many thanks in advance, Mike
  12. hi all i have a st170 focus 52 plate the 12v charger not working iv checked the fuse it seems ok ????? any ideas please
  13. Hey! Haven't posted in a while, finally got my ford fiesta :) One thing I mainly want to do is add lights into the footwell of the car. I want to run it from the 12V cigarette charger. I've purchased the following: 1 X Nokia In car charger (Spliced the endings already - Red/White cables) 2 X LED Strips (in Red) (should be here soon) 1 X Wire Connecter Box. Any ideas on hooking one of these up? I've got an old (demo) LED strip which I used to use on my computer desk, which is from the same shop I purchased the two Red Strips from. I simply just tried touching the ends from the LED strip up to the connected in car charger... but only two LED's lit up? :( Any help? This is the one thing I REALLY want to do to my car Thanks in Advance, Mark
