Where is the fuse for cigarette lighter for BMW 2000 5 D series

The lighters frequently burn out after a couple of years but you may still have power to the socket. Plug the charger in and check that the charge indicator light comes on. If it does your fine. If not you'll need to remove the socket and check the wires attached to it.

Cigerette lighter

Most likely the fuse is blow. Either a 15 or 20 amp fuse.
Open the glove box and turn the 2 white tabs 90 degrees. then pull the fuse panel down. There is a white card stuck in the bottom of the fuse box that shows what fuse number is the one for the cigarette lighter. Locate this fuse, they are numbered on the fuse box. Then replace it.
