    Seems I'm posting a new problem every 3/4 hours!

    Right, my cigarette lighter seems very dodgy to the point where it no longer seems to power anything, or heat up.

    Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter, is it underneath it or in the fuse block?

    Going to try changing the fuse before I take it to Renault, fking annoying cause I can't power my sat-nav or RA.

    Cheers folks

    It's in the fuse box, at the end of the dash. Although it does interior courtesy light and radio too iirc so I think you'd know if it had blown?

    Take the lighter out and check the plug hasn't worked loose.

    Hm, well the light in the ashtray thing still works ok as does the other courtesy lighting, so if that's true then I guess the fuse is fine.

    Anybody know how much a new cigarette lighter is? I shall try and get them to sort it on warranty though.
