    Light Problem

    Morning

    I've got a little thing thats annoying me, the 'o' ring around the cig lighter isn't on, and after owning the car for nearly a year i've just noticed it lol.

    Is it controled via a fuse as i tried a new bulb in it and still nothing is lit up :?

    Cheers guys

    fuse 36 is the cig lighter fuse, does the socket itself work when you plug stuff like a satnav or phone charger in? if it does work then it sounds like a bad connection to the bulb or another knackerd bulb

    Yeah the socket works fine and dandy, just isn't lit. So it could be a faulty connection then

    yeah its just not making the conection, pull it apart have a look at it, make sure the contacts are clean and not corroded, then put it back together.
    or just get the another socket from a scrapyard, won't cost much.

    just had a look at mine, the cig lighter socket has 2 connectors, both are attached aren't they?

    Yeah both are attached to the light and are no corroded so it looks like a trip to the scrappy could be needed
