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?

It is possible it's the fuse, check it before going any further:

The fuse panel is behind the big fold down panel below the steering column - looking at the fuses starting at top left corner, go down one this should be a yellow 20 amp fuse - this is the Cigar Lighter fuse.

Hope this helps.

I am having this problem too, my sat nav suddenly won't work?
reading other posts it suggeted I clean the lighter ? but on a ph1 gtv its perm live?

so I have been scraping with a ear bud cleaner and the contact is getting better slowly... now flickers where it didn't work at all so fuse is fine

I I need to get a stronger plastic though as it keeps bending

Any other idea's ???

147 ts 2.0

Ours (147 TS) is not working, either.
I have checked the fuse and replaced - still no joy on multimeter.
The gearchange gaiter can be removed to access the underside of the socket.
As yet I have not tried to check wiring to fuse for continuity.
Has anyone taken a pic of the lighter socket wiring and can post it up?
