Rear 12v ciggie point
« on: 29 July 2019, 16:16:16 »

I have just read the oldish thread about this.

My charger has ceased to work. I've checked and there's no power coming through. I read about the relay, but don't know where to find it. Would it be among those in the engine bay by the battery?

Thanks in advance.

am i right in thinking that the rear sockets also have a type of built in fuse to the centre contact ? this would blow if anything heavy wattage was tried in there.

Only if it's a dedicated fuse in the fusebox. Nothing at the socket (or within 3+ft of it)  ;)

Someone must have replaced mine at some point then. The socket didn't work but voltage was reaching the back of it. There was a small loop from the connector to the centre terminal. A fused loop. Some cars have them .girlfriends dads ix35 had it blow when he plugged in a compressor .

On my car this relay was toasted, the interior lights didn't work and no power in the rear gig outlet.

It is fused, on a FL it shares the same Fuse as the Climate Panel from memory, so if its blown CP is also off.

Had the same issue when I bought mine 5 years ago. All fuses were ok and I ended up using the power cable for heated seats instead. Not really the best option, but it works fine as I prefer to have a 12V outlet instead of unused sockets without switches (I don’t have heated back seats).
