    Question Front 12v Socket (cigarette Lighter) and middle socket not working

    Hi

    In my 2004 Touran 1.9 TDI I have the front and middle 12v sockets not working. The 12v socket in the book works fine.

    I checked the fuse and when I pulled it out the boot one stopped working so I'm guessing the fuse is ok.

    Any ideas anyone

    Thanks

    The boot socket is on fuse 42, the front and rear sockets are on fuse 47.

    Dear All,

    I’m new to this group having just purchased a 2004 Touran Sport TDI. The front and middle cigarette lighters do not work, but the rear one in the boot does. I’ve checked fuse 47 and it doesn’t appear to be broken. There is a light around the fuse when you switch the lights on, but that’s as far as it goes. I’m really stuck..!!

    Put a new fuse in to make sure.
