Charging mobile from Cigarette Lighter socket

    I had been using the cigarette lighter for charging the MMI GPS. But sometimes the charger used to move out of the proper position and so I used to rotate it and keep it in the right way. Once the front portion of this charger opened up and all the springs and other metal components went in to the cigarette lighter. From that day onwards the cigarette lighter doesnt work in my Linea. There is no current from the outlet since this incident while the MMI charger started working in other cars after I reassembled all those things which came out. What could be the possible issue?? Blown fuse??

    Check fuse F44 (inside area marked '2') in the dashboard fuse box rated 15 amps. No. 7 is the fuse replacement pliers and No. 1 are reserve fuses (according to the manual, I haven't checked)


    If metal parts fell inside while the circuit was on, I guess they might have caused a short and blown the fuse.

    The cigarette lighter works, but the charger wont fit perfectly in the cigarette lighter, as Vijay and some others stated you will have to adjust the charger and try and pull out the clips as shown by Vijay to make it fit.

    Please ensure that the charger is not in the charging slot when you are cranking the engine or turning ignition off.

    I use the China made GPS tab charger and as mentioned above, have to rotate and adjust it a bit to fit properly. Recently we used aftermarket multiple pin mobile charger of Vj_V1 and it fits perfectly. The after market cigarette lighter that I have, pops out once the coil gets heated and hence I have to hold on it for couple of secs to avoid it to pop-out and fall on the floor or under the hand brake area.

    The aftermarket mobile car charger takes long time to charge and frequently gets disconnected due to loose fitting, has any one experienced this ..?
