auxiliary power socker not working - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC/Other - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

My auxiliary socket (below the pointless cup holder between the seats) is suddenly not working so checked the fuse (33) and all ok. Swapped it anyway but no change.

So assume maybe a wires come off behind, though Any other suggestions welcome.

What's the method for taking it out and checking the connections. Is it simply pushed into its position?

Thanks for any help as always.

Probably just the connector has popped off the back. To remove take out the single screw in the tat tray and lift up, this will expose two more screws, remove those and lift the whole assembly out. Then you can reconnect the cigarette lighter socket. 

If they are still connected, try checking for earth and live continuity as the cable may have snagged on something, but a loose connector is most likely

You could try to remove the socket from the front and and wiggle out but from the front you are likely to snap the snap in tabs

Finally got around to sorting this (car hasn't moved for 8 weeks due to Covid situation).

 

Had checked fuses and now fitted a new auxiliary unit (fag lighter part). Made no difference.

Plugged in the electruical tyre pump (the main reason I need this to work) and turned it on, nothing. So then went to the fuse box again.

Pulled out the fuse and then, as I put it back in, the pump started to work. Seems it works, as long as the fuse is not fully engaged (i.e 90% in not 100%).

Weird, but we're used to weird, so just thought I'd post in case anyone else has had similar issues.

Keep well all.
