Cigarette Lighter/Side View Mirrors...

I don't really know when it started happening, but one day I ended up realizing that my electronic side view mirrors ended up stop working, later that day I also realized that my cigarette lighter did the same, but I ended up not using either for like a couple weeks so I can't really explain when and what i did to it before hand...

Any Ideas?

If the cigarette lighter stopped working also then I would first suspect a fuse blown. or just a bad fuse connection. try this first. hope this is all it is because it would be an easy fix.

My side rear view mirrors stop work


That's the beauty of electronics. Eventually they go bad. Of course I am kidding when I say that's the beauty of it but anyway. Both problems that your are having could be cause by several things whether is be electrical or hardware based. Your side mirror adjustment could've stopped working due to the switch going out, the motor going bad, or maybe a wire shorting out or possibly even a fuse blowing (although I doubt it's the fuse because several other things would likely also stop working). The rear view mirror problem could also be cause be such electrical problems although I would probably bet that the LEDs just finally burned out and in that case you would have to buy a new rear view mirror. Diagnosing such problems over the internet is nearly impossible and your best bet is to take it to a good mechanic

Pretty sure the mirror switch is the culprit(I'm assuming the joystick and selector switch are all one piece).

My Skoda Octavia '97 lighter don't work.


The lighter socket has a separate fuse. I'm not really sure where the cockpit fuse panel is located in your model (didn't have myself), but I'm sure it should be documented in the owners manual.
Later models had the fuse panel at the left dashboard side which is accessible from the opened drivers door. (UK: possibly mirrored) I can imagine the early octavia still has the fuse panel under the dash either at drivers or passenger side. This was usual for a long time.

How do i find out if its the cigarette lighter port or a fuse that needs replacing on my 2008 Mazda 5?


I pulled fuse 4 from the inside fuse box on the passenger side dashboard, but quickly realized it is for the rear power outlet, not the cigarette lighter outlet. The cigarette lighter outlet is fuse number 6. They are both blue 15A fuses.
