Cigarette Lighter Not Working

8 posts in this topic

Last week while cleaning the car the USB lead off my sat nav went into the cigarette lighter and sparked. Automatically changed the fuse but no joy so tonight changed the socket itself but still no joy!!! Any ideas on what I could try next as it's starting to drive me mad!!!!

Which fuse ?

On fiesta (which I assume from your profile pic) it's one of the "maxi" block fuses at the bottom of the fusebox, this isn't shown in the manual.

Aahh no one has mentioned that before, are they visible to see if they've blown like the blade ones or do they have to be metered? Are they the smallish square ones in the fuse box behind the glove box?

Thank you fordtech I've just been out to check and the 20 amp maxi fuse is blown. Not even ford could work that out last week!!!! I will pick one up tomorrow and hopefully will do the job.

Thanks fordtech thumbs up!!! Just picked up a fuse and it's working a treat. Thumbs down to ford for trying to convince me to give them the car for a couple of days to "diagnose" the problem at expense!!!! £3.00 fix. Thanks again mate.

Can anyone tell me what fuse it is to fix on the 2002 focus? As non of my cigarette ports are putting power out?
