Neither the Cig. Lighter or Passenger Socket Works - Fuse issue or something more?

Hey all,

neither my cigarette lighter socket, nor my additional socket under the glovebox, works. I would *assume* they're separate fuses, but I do not know for sure.

- Are they different fuses?
- Regardless if there are two fuses or one, if both are fine, could it be that *both* wires are fried, or is there something else going on?

What year is your car, depending on which model (645/650) it is a different fuse. And yes, if your lighter socket stops working always start with the fuse. In the 645 it is #61 in the trunk and if a 650 #87. Both of these by memory so you might need to verify, a search in the forum will yield you the answers.

Hey all, I replaced Fuse #61 with a Yellow 20 Amp fuse as tampamark mentioned. All is back to normal! I could easily see the break in the connection within the fuse.

For anybody in the future - my car is a 2005 645Ci.

Cheers everybody!
