    The cigar lighter on my ducatto isn't working, i've checked the fuse and it looks intact.

    Any suggestions would be a great help.

    Sorry to ask the obvious but have you tried with ignition on.

    When I had the same problem, reading the manual wasn't a lot of help. It led me to the wrong fuse, in both position & rating.

    Check the others in the same block.

    What is your vehicle, with age. The question being is it a simple fuse or the dreaded CANBUS ?

    Test the fuse with a continuity meter or just replace it. Looks can be deceiving.

    Thanks all , problem now solved, it was in fact as Phill D had suggested and the fuse was reversed with the other power outlet and was a 15amp as opposed to a 10 as stated in the handbook.

    Thanks to all ye funsters, i'm now relieved its sorted, thanks again.:clap2::clap2::clap2:

    "It's what we do Sir" he booms, tipping his hat, as he rides off into the sunset.
