I have a Mk3 Mondeo and I regularly use a USB lead to charge my phone, which I use for satnav. For a while this worked great and the phone would charge whilst the sat nav was in use. However recently the phone will charge, but when I have satnav on too, it drains the battery rather than charging or even holding the charge.

 

I tried different USB cables and 12v to usb connector and still have the same issue. I know it's not the phone as I tried it successfully in my wife's Skoda.

 

Any idea what might be the problem? Faulty fuse?

Yes. I thought it might have been the cable but it seems not.

more likely to be the 12v socket as opposed to the fuse. it wouldnt be that tempromental.

 

You could just remove and replace the 12v socket itself.

You might need to remove the plastics from around it, but once you get to the raw socket, just prize it up with a screwdriver (tape around the end to protect the plastics) and then pull out, disconnect, reconnect the new one and refit!
