    Question Lighter fuse!?

    Hey everyone, just bought me astra coupe mk4, but the lighter doesnt seem to be working, think it could be the fuse, have had a look on the diagram but cant seem to find out where the fuse for the lighter system is, does anyone know which number it is? cheers

    15A fuse, in 36
    4th row down (or 2nd row up), then 4 fuses from the left

    Was the fuse the problem? Alot of people seem to have problems with these on the mk4's.

    yeah it seemed to be the fuse as its now working , but actually finding a shop that sells these mini fuses is another thing, Halfords only sold one type of these fuses, an assorted packet of 2-7.5amp fuses, unfortunatly the lighter is 15 so had to do with a 7.5, no idea how long it will last for but the light seems to be working now!

    The 7.5 amp fuse will last fine if your just using it for sat nav's/ phone chargers etc. As soon as you try to use it as a ciggy lighter the fuse will blow.

    Always best to go for a lower fuse than higher one
