Hi all,

Fault came back again today "Nightmare".

It was when I plugged my TomTom adapter in the ciggy lighter. I can recall the origional fault occuring after we used the TomTom last.
The ciggy lighter was placed in the ash tray whilst the adapter was in use, and it was during this time a penny fitted itself nicely in the lighter.
On pulling out the lighter today and pushing in the adapter the fault occured, the penny was shorting out the circuit.

"Nightmare indeed"

Maybe if I was a smoker there would be no money in the ashtray!!!!!!

Don't want to think how much renault would have charged me. Also think the chaffed wire was a red herring.
