  1. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hello, 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...

    Apologies if this has been answered millions times but I wanted to find specific answers to my question. Is it wise to leave a dash cam connected to the cigarette lighter port at all times or when I believe it might be some use in certain areas when parking for long periods of hours?. I've read...

    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...

    Hi All. Does the lighter socket at the front of the centre console light up? The dealer tells me it doesn't and is working OK. Anyone with a similar 2014 420d M Sport convertible tell me otherwise please ?

    I've managed to source a decent rear centre console cover with the 2 lighter sockets (so the kids can plug in their devices). The car was the non smoker pack but has the lighter socket under the centre arm rest. I'd like to wire in the additional lighters but I don't want to just chop the...

    Hi... My external Satnav stopped charging yesterday plugged into the Ciggie Lighter. I looked in the socket for the first time and noticed what appeared to be a piece of chewing Gum paper in there. Turns out it seems to have been a piece of foil stuck down what I think is probably masking...

    The cigar lighter sockets on my 2007 530d only have power when the engine is running, is this typical? I remember my pre Lci was not like this.

    Can some nice person please tell me where the Cigarette lighter relay K31 is located please? I have the 530i Sports Wagon but I would guess it will be in the same position as the sedan. My front cig lighter has stopped working and fuses 21 and 52 are not blown. I can only assume for now the...
