I recently bought a 116d F20 and have noticed that the cigarette lighter does not work. I have looked at it, and everything visually appears to be all in order, a connection is being made. Is it most likely going to be a fuse that needs replacing? If so, any instructions would be much...

Usual story, someone dropped something metallic in the front cigarette lighter and consequently the fuse blew, not me.

Does anyone know if this socket is permanently live or whether the car shuts the power off after a set time once it's been locked? I'm thinking of trying one of those Bluetooth FM transmitters so I can play music on my phone but don't want the hassle of having to remove it so it doesn't...
Only had my E92 for a week and the cigarette lighter (both in the arm rest and the ash tray) have never worked. Figured it was a blown fuse.
Just whipped out F8 (20A) from the fuse box and yep, it was bust.
Popped the new one in and still no power to either of the lighter sockets. Tried...

Any advice much appreciated.
Hello one and all,

I plugged in my electric tyre pump as I have done periodically before to my 12v cigarette lighter outlet, and after a couple of seconds it stopped. According to the legend behind the fuse box cover, this is covered by fuse number 8. I Pulled the fuse and checked...
