Front cigarette lighter not working. After doing some online research I learned fuse number 43 (15 amp) is located on the engine bay fuse box. I checked and it was fine. Replaced it with a new one anyhow, just to be sure.

This did not cure the problem. Both the lighter and the astray light still have no power.

After further research, it seems there is a relay on the rear fuse box that's accessible from the back center arm rest that may also control power to the lighter.

Does anyone have any information on this?

Thank you.





It is 90% of the times a simple fuse problem. Since the fuse is NOT a problem in your case, there are only two other options: 1. A Relay problem, which I think you should check to confirm 2. A faulty Piece of lighter that needs to be changed.


You can check out the first option and if it doesn't change anything, option 2 is the only thing left to do.
