So I finally found an Atenza I was comfortable paying for and got it last week. The cigarette lighter hasn't worked at all. I checked the fuse this evening and it seems fine. Any ideas why it wouldn't be working/things I could check myself? or am I best to just goto an auto-electrician?

Love your forums by the way! So many great ideas to keep the bank account empty :rolleyes:

Having the same problem. Only the rear cig lighter works, I checked the fuses in the driver side foot rest area and they are good. I also checked the fuses in engine bay but none are labeled "cig lighter" or anything close to it.

Pink wire should have 12 volts with the key on, and the black wire should have less than 1 ohm resistance to ground at all times.

Fuse for front power socket is #10 15A

Check this and keep us posted.

If they are both good, then your lighter element has been corroded and needs to be replaced.
