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...

U will have 2 isolate all the wires so they cant touch each other & the body work -steel - just use some electrical tape 2 prevent wires touching!!!!! Or open the door & look 4 the plug C if U can pull on the plug 2 disconnect it!!!! Good luck!!!!
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
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.
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.
