Hi

I purchased my car 2nd hand, so the cigarette lighter never worked from the start

so now I am trying to find out what the problem is

the fuse seems to be alright, I took apart the cigarette lighter and socket I notice that from this point I kinda loss

I did how ever notice there are 2 little some kind of light bulb what these blue rubber glove over them

one of them looks to be burned out

I wonder if that has to do with it

Please help

thanks

Hi someboi,

Those two bulbs are for illumination of the lighter and ashtrays.

Did you check for power supply to the lighter terminal socket? If power is available, the lighter or heater element is faulty.
