Hi I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with their cigarette lighter. I noticed mine was all broken inside and wasnt working so I completely replaced the unit and popped in a new fuse as last one was blown but nothing it still wont work?????

Any help would be much appreciated
Cheers

First thing is to get yourself an electrical tester (the one with the dial and two probes) - they sell these in B&Q for 7 quid. Put the red probe in the middle of the socket (inside) and the other on the metal on the outside. You should get a reading of 12v.

If you want to check the wiring, take the ashtray out and fiddle about underneath. Have you plugged the plugs back on, there are two.

If not, I'll get the wiring diagram.

Just a silly question (please don't take offence) but you do know that the F ciggie socket is switched with ignition? The TF is perma live.

Mine stopped working recently and found one of the wires at the base had broken, just the matter of a quick re solder and power once more.
