2017 ford focus cigarette lighter not working

Recommended Posts

As title after having a look at the fuses all seem fine I came across this wire that is pluged into where the 20amp fuse goes to run the lighter.

Unpluged said wire inserted a fuse and the lighters work fine but put that wire back and nothing so anybody have any idea what it is/could be for please as its annoying me.

thank you in advance for any help/reply.

Its a piggyback fuse adapter.  Usually used for dashcam hardwiring but may also be power for aftermarket phone/sat nav etc.

Yeah you won't cause any issues running the car without that, as Tom already said, it's usually for a dashcam, satnav, phone etc, if its already plugged into a dashcam put it in the foglight fuse instead

Only problem you may have is that some dashcam  draw too much current for the USB port to keep the dashcam battery charged.
