I have a 2011 Mini Cooper S Clubman (US specs). The cigarette lighter does not work and there is not a separate fuse identified in the fuse panel. I have checked all 15 amp fuses (regardless of what they were labeled) and all are good.
Is it possible the cigarette lighter is part of another circuit? Can anyone help please?

After reading almost all of the threads I began to realize the fuse panel schematics seemed to be different for many minis. No pun intended!
Mike suggested fuse 42.....in my panel that was for “heated seat”. I realized circuit 44 looked like an “accessory” symbol and was 20 amps (see image.jpg my attached photo). Voila.......it was fried and after replacement the lighter receptacle worked.
I’m thinking at some point it was decided to identify the circuit as an accessory circuit rather than cigarette lighter seeing as that had become the primary purpose.
Hope this helps some out there.
