My cigarette lighters near the cup holder and also the one in the boot are beginning to wind me up.
Everything wriggles about and nothing seems to sit flush and tight in the socket (makes using a tyre compressor almost impossible without someone holding it in place inside the car/boot)...
Replacing the centre consul as the cigarette lighter part is broken. Connected the new one up and the illumination doesn't work.
Does anyone know where the illumination live comes from? I've checked the fuse and there is power to the cigarette lighter itself just not the illumination.
I have a 2003 156 jts veloce (facelift model). There is a very strange thing happening with the fuse for the cigarette lighter. The fuse was blown so I replaced it. The cigarette lighter worked fine with the ignition switched on. However, when I start the engine, the fuse blows. I have tried...
I don't suppose anyone knows the max load in watts and amps of the GTV6's cigarette lighter?
I just tried my new ring air compressor to pump the tyres up and it wasn't running properly. I had the engine running too to provide more power. It works on my Alfa 156....
The ring air...
Hi Alfa buds, Just sold my GT V6 and brought an 08 Alfa 159 jtdm. Cracking car and loving the economy over my old thirsty V6!!
The car has previously been owned by a chain smoking over stressed salesrep I guess and the aircon stinks of ciggy smoke.
The interior of the car has been extensively...
The cigarette Lighter in my 159 has stopped working, and it seems like a blown fuse. But, I don't know how to go about replacing the fuse.
Suggestions welcome.. Also, could it be something other than the fuse?
i am a AR 159 owner just 2 Months. We go in 4 days to holiday ( unexpectedly) and my cigarette lighter is not ok, 12v is missing, navigation is not running.
Please, help me to fix it, photo HOW will be very helpful!
What should i do? Can i fix it by myself?
And sorry for my...
I have my console outside complete dismantle EXCEPT for the cigarette lighter. :cry:
It seems obvious that the "metal part" ("cigarette lighter itself") will have to come upwards, and the "red plastic" with light bulb will have to go downwards, as it will never go up through the round...
I'm new to the forums but I've had a quick search around and couldn't find the answer.
The problem :
Pretty sure my cigarette lighter has stopped working on my 159. I've checked the fuses and the fuse is fine, I swapped it with the other ones just to be sure.
Rang my alfa garage up...
Has anybody found a way of getting the power socket a bit nearer the screen for a satnav.
I've mounted my garmin on a vent bracket but it's a long way to the power source (and I usually run it on battery).
A socket to the side of the fascia would be good. Or getting a lead to come out of the vent!
For some reason, and in the middle of a drive, my sat nav lost power from the cigarette lighter... Since then it will not power anything - the lighter itself, sat nav, phone charger...
I tried the 12v in the boot too, that's dead.
My sweetheart (2002 2.0ts 156) won't cool me anymore.... :(
At the very same time the aircon stopped working, the cigarette lighter stopped working too. All the lights come on on the buttons, but it only blows hot air, and no juice from the lighter socket.
Ive heard from someone...
Hey everyone! I've got an 147 and the cig lighter doesn't work! I've changed the fuse and no luck!? It doesn't work with a sat nav or the lighter itself.
It used to be a finance car owned by RBS so I'm wondering whether there was some way that they've had it disabled (strange, but have heard of...
I have tried several cigarette chargers for phones etc, but none of them fit reliably. could it be that the size is bigger than 'standard' thus creating a bad connection? or that the socket is worn out? I am now considering fitting some USB sockets as I don't use the lighter socket...
I'm looking for a suitable illumination/dimmer wire for connecting an aftermarket head unit. I read that people have had joy with one of the cigarette lighter wires, but I'm getting odd readings from mine (2006 147) which I'm wondering if someone can help with:
Measuring with a...
I'm aware that the Alfa 12v power outlet is slightly wider in diameter as it is made for a european market. this can create problems for compatibility with tomtom, garmin (or in my case Griffin) as these plugs are skinnier.
Anyone know if i can get a slip or an adjustment for the plug of my...
My cigarette lighter has recently failed, i've replaced the correct fuse with another 20AMP but it still does't work... is there another fuse underneath the cigarette lighter itself or should i replace the unit?
Thanks in advance,
