    Default Cigarette lighter socket wont work with lighter

    It works fine with sat navs and all that crap but when I try to use the cigarette lighter from my old mk1 megane in either of the socket it doesnt work. Cigarette lighters are supposed to be universal so what the hel is going on?

    On the Veccy, unless you specify the smokers pack when the car is new, you have power outlet sockets fitted, not cigarette lighters. The shell of the socket is different, hence your lighter is not making contact to get hot.

    Get a lighter socket from the stealers, it should be a direct replacement for the power socket, same wiring.

    Cant I just buy an after-market cigarette lighter that will fit in an ordinary socket? And why the hell do you need a smokers pack? Old cigarette lighters i ahd worked for cigarettes AND everything else this is a ****ing ripoff i thought thius was supposed to be a premium car not a mug off. Even my PoS old 106 had a ciggy lighter.
