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.

Which fuse is for the cigarette lighter as want to change it


If by 1 series you mean a 1XX model, the front cigar lighter fuse is 20A FUSE 8 in the junction box. That fuse also connects power to the rear center console charging socket and the luggage compartment socket outlet.

you may have a blown fuse,check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood,if all are OK try plugging something else into the socket, a phone charger or the like to see if that works & if it does the problem is the lighter element is faulty.......hope this helps......cheers

You likely have a blown fuse. I have heard using the cigarette lighter for charging your cell phone can blow the fuse - was told to use the charger inside the center console for charging my cell phone.

My cigarette lighter won't work. Either the unit is burnt out; the fuse is blown or??? I need to fix this as I need a place to plug my cell phone/computer charging stuff. Any help is gr8!


if you don't need the lighter itself to light up cigarrettes, then get rid of the lighter and using a test light or meter, make sure there is power inside thesocket where the lighter plugs into. if power is already there, then your done and ready to go, if power is not there, then check for an open fuse in your fuse panel...some lighter go directly to the battery, in that case make sure that the wires are not broken somewhere between the lighter socket and the battery
