    Welcome to the Club Chap

    Have you fitted any devices to it that might not be connected properly

    has it been removed before, and been put back "shoderly" ?

    Check connection's to it.

    No mate, only had the car a week, the only thing that was changed by the prev owner is the cd player and that was done in 2003 by a vauxhall garage.

    Revome the ciggy lighter then replace the fuse. If it still blows at least you know it's not the socket it's self which is what I expect it to be
