+12v socket Cigarette lighter not working?

hi guys, ive just noticed my +12v cigarette lighter doesnt work in the center console, wont charge anything!

the one under the glove compartment works fine?

i have had a look at the Fuse layout leaflet in the boot but cant find anything relating to the +12 power sockets on the car, any help would be appreciated as im sure it will just be a blown fuse!

thankyou

Just to check: you are trying the socket while the engine is running, right ?

I'm pretty sure the sockets are supposed to work with the engine off also..

I think they are switched off after a while.

That's correct! Everything stops working (radio/CD, electric windows etc.) a few minutes after you turn off the engine.

Hi, Im new here. I have been looking around for a while, but this is my first post.

I have a 2012 116d, and the 12v socket in the center console is not working. I think it has been short circuited by some coins or keys. My problem is that I cant find anything to indicate which of the fuses it could be. Seems like the fuse diagram is missing and I have not been able to find it by googling either. Does anybody know which of the fuses it could be?

Cheers

Mats

I just got my 12V front socket fixed at my dealer (blown fuse). Donīt know if itīs any help, never looked in the fuse box myself, but the fuse they swapped was yellow.

This is really a bad news because we can use cigarette lighter as a additional charger for our tools. I have a cigarette lighter. But it is still working. You can fix it by a mechanic.
