faulty cigarette lighter (12v supply)

hi my 12v supply (cigarette lighter) is refusing to work

where is the location of the fuses on a 2.0ts 147??

is this a common problem

could it be anything except the fuses?

147 faulty cigarette lighter

Hey Trickydee, I have an Alfa 147 and you can get to the fuse box which is located under the RHS of the steering wheel. You need to remove the cover first though, there's a screw on either side (just under) the steering wheel. They need to screw out a fair way and then the panel just falls down (note it's hinged at the bottom so don't force it!). You need the really small fuses, but I have a similar problem with my cig lighter as well whereby it doesn't work and I checked the fuse and it was fine, but replaced it all the same and still doesn't work! Mine was previously owned by a finance company (RBS) and I was thinking that perhaps it was "disabled" somehow due to them probably having a no smoking policy in their cars or something random like that!
Here's a manual for the 147 Seleziona un modello - Libretto Uso Manutenzione Alfa so you can see where the fuse for the cig lighter is! Let me know if it works or not as I'd be keen to find out if there's something funny going on with mine!!
