    Fuse # 8, 15A

    presumably you have no working interior light either?

    Thanks for your help, I have now found out that is not the fuse.

    If you have any ideas why the cigarette lighters don't work please could you let me know..

    The interior lights do work.
    Cheers

    Would check and see if someone has not stolen the wire from the fag lighter to power something else like cd player so on..... if you take the fuse out and see if anything else stops working,, if not that ................not sure but is there a relay for this?...will check and get back to you

    Cheers

    There are two fag lighters in the A6, the second in the middle console pointing back towards the rear passengers (if fitted in the UK?). These both run off the same supply wire. According to the wiring diagram I have there is no relay, they are supplied directly off supply point 30 (battery).

    hi, new to the forum, first post, please be gentle with me! Some fleet/company cars simply have the wiring dis connected from the cig lighter to stop people using them, is also the case with rear cig lighters to stop little hands from fiddling with them!
