Hi

The 12v. power plug in the little pocket in front on the gearstick isn't working, how much of a job is it to get it out and replace it.
cheers
John.

remove the fuse and look in the socket for the lighter theres two metal strips either side use a small flat screwdriver and bend them in towards the inside of the socket replace fuse and see if it works if these dont make contact it wont work

Just a thought, Is your plug long enough? lol. We've tried using one of those USB cig lighter adaptors in a Peugeot and its centre pin just didn't make contact at the back. We therefore had no sat nav on a trip to the Isle of Wight. It always worked in my Focus but the Peugeot's socket was just too deep!

Tried the fuse and bending the metal strips in the socket out still no good, so back to square one. How much of a job is it to get out and replace.
Cheers

it died and I had no idea where to go, no map either

That'll teach you to put all your eggs in one technological basket, young man :rolleyes:

Being old, I haven't got out of the habit of keeping a map in the car and I often find the satnav doesn't take me by the route I want to go. I can't be bothered with the hassle of entering exclusions and suchlike so I'll usually plan the route with a map and use the satnav to home in on the final destination if it's in a town or city, and it has proved very useful on occasion used that way. I've also found it quite useful using Google streetview to get a view of the destination when it's somewhere unfamiliar.

I know my son has got lost on a number of occasions when his satnav took him on a completely screwball route. Like a lot of modern technology they are best regarded as an aid but best not to put too much reliance on them.
