    Hi all,

    Having a bit of a nightmare finding which fuse controls the 12v socket/cigarette lighter?

    I have a 2004 2.0 TDi with the fuse box under the bonnet, in the manual the cigarette lighter is clearly marked in the diagram of the fuse box in the side of the dash, but not for the one under the bonnett?? :huh:

    Someone suggested F24 which according to my manual is Control unit for CAN data transfer. I tried swapping this with another fuse and the socket still didnt work,

    Maybe I need to replace the sockets, and friend of mine dropped a metal object into it in a fluke accident, there was a small spark and it hasnt worked since. I presumed the fuse had blown but the inside does look a little damaged so maybe it needs changing?

    any help would be much appreciated, thanks! :yes:

    There are 2 fuse boxes! One under the bonnet and one on the side of the dash drivers side, So your both right!!! ;)
