Re: Cigarette Lighter not working properly renault clio 1.6 04
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.
