    Hello one and all, I recently used my 12v cigarette lighter socket for my tyre pump as I have done many times before, but on this occasion it ran for a few seconds and it stopped. Checked fuse F8 in junction box and it is intact. I think the problem may be relay...

    Just bought a 2005 630i. It has a multi cd player that doesn't seem to want to play as well as a single disc cd player that works fine. It has bluetooth connectivity fitted too. I wanted to fit an aux socket instead of the multi disc. It doesn't have to be an iPod and it doesn't really have to...

    That's pretty much it to be honest! It's a plastic cover but doesn't have the small plastic nut on top. I read somewhere that it should be 36mm, but the sockets I've seen seem a bit small? I will double check before dropping the oil next time and not rely on the Haynes manual :confused

    E39 528i year automatic 2000. We use the cigarette lighter to plug in the Garmin satnav but unfortunately the socket has stopped working. The fuse is OK so I believe I should try to inspect the actual cigarette lighter socket. The socket is mounted within a hinge and sprung cover arrangement and...

    Hello, Apologies if this has been covered in a mother thread but I couldn't see it anywhere else. I have a 2007 E92 335d and recently have been having problems with the 12V power socket which I use to charge my mobile phone. I've been using the socket that is inside the middle arm-rest for the...

    525d 2014. I plug my dashcam into the front lighter socket. If I lock the car and leave, the cam keeps running so power is being supplied to it. Similarly, if I unlock the car and plug the dashcam in, there is power, even without me touching the start/stop button. Is this normal ? If so, when...

    Hi all, I fitted an extra cigar socket in the boot of my 5 series yesterday, a UK registered 2010 F10. All went fine, but I was going to connect directly to the fuse box by adding a new point by pushing the connector through, but when it came to it, I didn't want to take the fuse box apart. I...
