Cigarette lighter will be fine. You seldom use it and certainly not whilst reversing.

    Hi, sorry I was a bit slow getting back. I do use the cigarette lighter, I have a navigator plunged into the cigarette lighter. Can I use both off the same fuse (use a fuse tap) or would I be better using a spare slot. Are all fuses 12v outlet.

    If you have a spare fuse slot, you may as well use it. Mark on the lid is is for the camera. If not, the lighter heating element is the main draw, the camera and the nav unit are both low amps, so will be fine.

SOURCE: where is the fuse box in 2005 ford focus

The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by
the brake pedal. Remove the CD stowage box to access the fuses.
To remove a fuse, use the fuse puller tool provided on the power
distribution box cover located in the engine compartment.

Check fuse 47, it is a 20 Amp

Here is a link to your owners manual on PDF

SOURCE: How do i change 12v power / cigarette lighter! in a Peugoet 206

The cigarette lighter is connected to a harness that's being the unit. You need to most likely remove the panel that the cigarette lighter is attached to in order to remove the lighter unit out. Once the unit is out, disconnect the wiring harness to exchange it. I don't know how exactly your lighter will come out

Ford focus 2003 TDCI the cigarette lighter power outtlet won't power my portable sat nav or tyre inflator assume no power to the lighter ?? can you help thanks


The fuse for tis lighter assembly has probably blown. Look in the fusebox for a blown blue color fuse. Replace this for a 20 amp yellow one. If you are powering items from this plug, it will need the extra 5 amp to cope. Hope this helps

Cant find the fuse for my cigarette lighter in my x reg focus ghia


The fuse is going to be in your fuse box. On the diagram it should show either cigarette lighter or accessories. It is there you will find the fuse.

Need to change the fuse of the cigarette lighter in my 53 Ford Focus C-Max


For the cigarette lighter fuse on uk models ford focus there is another 'hidden' fuse box behind the glove box.
Just unscrew three screws at the hinge of the glove box.
Replace fuse 35 which is a 15amp fuse.
Hope this helps .
