    Fuse for Cigarette Lighter

    I was told that the cigarette lighter is powered off the radio. I have power to my radio, but the lighter socker doesn't work (I tried both the lighter itself and my cell phone adaptor). My dealer hasn't been particularly eager to help out.

    I tried replacing the yellow (20 a) fuse on the top of the interior panel, without luck.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks folks,

    Alan

    cig ligther is NOT powered off of the radio one, it's a seperate fuse that makes little sense. I can't remember which exact one it is, but I believe it's a red fuse. It's been posted somewhere, but after I dig around in my car I'll postback if you haven't dfound it yet.

    it's a yellow 20a fuse in the kickpanel fusebox, I believe in the middle of the top row

    I had to replace mine when a defective power inverter blew it
