Question about 2001 Volvo S40
12 Volt Cigarette Lighter / Accessory no longer works. I checked the fuse and it is still good. Any suggestions? Or just replace unit?
Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.
