Front Panel Electrical Question

Good Morning all,

I recently bought a used 2003 R53 MCS. I am having an issue that I cannot seem to diagnose. The front cigerette lighter has three wires in the harnees underneath and I have figured out they are the pos/neg poles of the lighter, but cannot figure out what the other wire is for (it has been jerry rigged). The issue that I am having is that the lighter works, but if i plug a usb charger for my sat nav or iphone or any other device, I do not get power through the charger. I have checked all the fuses, and have a replacement lighter socket on order. Any other suggestions and does anyone know what that other wire is for??? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi

There should be three wire poss and neg for the power socket plus the one thin gauge wire for the orange light ring.

If switch on the lights you should have voltage there if it for the light ring


Hope this helps
