Hello all,

I have searched about for this with little success so here goes. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read. I will try and be concise:

I have recently bought a pre-owned 2007 Mini One. I have bought a USB adapter for the Cigarette Lighter only to find the socket doesn't seem to work.

Have searched about and have been told that the fuse is F32.... Then F44...shows the horn in the fuse box. Nope. Have looked at the diagram in the cover of the footwell and there is no icon for cigarette lighter at all.

Have also discovered there are slots which are empty but the cover shows they should not be. The cover shows an icon that I cannot identify. The slots are F2, F4, F41. The picture is like some kind of curved pipe (?) with a knob on the end!!

I am confused and now aware this isn't concise.....my cigarette lighter does not work and I want to check the fuse. The manual is no use at all. Does the cigarette lighter have a conventional fuse?!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

George

i dont know if you have already sorted this by now given its been so long but on my 2012 mini the ciggy lighter fuse is F44 but haynes states F42 is the fuse for pre-2009 models ( on mine its a normal blade fuse - not the smaller mini blade style fuse the rest of the fusebox uses ), the sysmbol thats used on the fusebox diagram on my mota is like a C with a line coming out the right side gap thats got a + symbol beside the line.

on mine, the same fuse powers both the cabin accessory socket & the accessory socket in the passenger side of the boot too & its a 20A fuse.

the symbol you describe i think may be empty as you do not have a factory fitted towbar & electrics for it etc, thats what i assumed that symbol meant on my mota anyway as it kinda looks to me like a detachable towball, i never checked if mine had the fuses present ( i dont have a towbar on mine )

This is spot on i.e. cigar lighter fuse F44 LCI cars and F42 pre-LCI cars. The "bent tube" is for towbar electrics.
