Twingo problem with cigarette lighter

Hi guys. New to this, and I dont know alot about cars!

I have a renault twingo 2008. A few weeks ago my Belkin Tunebase fused in my cigarette lighter and broke. After much panicking and finally looking on the forums I found the fuse, and this turned out to be the problem! However when i change the fuse and plug anything into the lighter it atomatically blows the fuse within a second. Am stuck on what to try next! please help!!Any advise is muchly appreciated!

Re: Twingo problem with cigarette lighter

Sounds like there is a short on the lighter unit. You'll need to remove it to check or to fit a replacement.
