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

the only idea i could of had is the fuse... does the fuse you put in work? What i would do is take a fuse of the borad (Same A) and test. This way you are sure the one you test with actually works =). Never had any other problem for this so can't help out much more

As above, make sure it's the right fuse and if dtill no power it could be the socket has become disconnected.

Thanks for the quick replies. I was actually already using an existing fuse of the same rating, thanks for the help anyway.

I may try and remove some trim pieces to get at the connection to the socket tomorrow. Alternatively I presume I could at least test the earth/neutral connection with a multimeter between the socket's neutral and the negative terminal of the battery.

Thanks :)

That pic should help - is that the fuse you replaced?

I replaced (well added) the fuse in position 22, 4th row up 6th from left in that photo. Which is the cigar lighter/front power point according to the car's logbook. The one in the photo is stated as "Not Used" in the logbook, I shall see if putting a 20A their works.

 

Thanks for the link :)

Interesting, the fuse indicated in that photo does exist in my car and is clearly blown, I shall get a replacement tomorrow and see what happens.

Thanks very much, it is now all working again simply by replacing the correct fuse.

Cheers :)
