Cigarette Lighter not working properly renault clio 1.6 04

Hi

Looking for a few sugestions,

The Cigarette lighter in my car is not working properly,

it doesnt illuminate or charge phone or sat nav but if you push it down to use as a lighter it does work.

Any ideas?

If the socket works to heat the cigarette lighter element then there's no reason it won't work to power a 12V device.

Have you tried a different adapter?

Check also the metal contact areas are clean enough to provide current flow to your charging adapter. Don't go poking anything in there though as it may be pre-ignition live i.e even if the ignition is turned off, this socket will be capable of sourcing current.

Re: Cigarette Lighter not working properly renault clio 1.6 04

i have exact same problem on my 54 megane. I/m a novice so can anyone tell me how i can check without poking anything in there? or is there any easy way to pull out and clean?

Also just went through the car manual and got the impression the cigarette lighter & 12v socket are different on some models.

Page 153 (3.29) Accessories socket: Depending on the vehicle the cigarette lighter can also be used as a 12v accessories socket.

Just don't want to go fiddling around if i need to change the socket.

Thanks for any help you guys can provide cheers H
