    Angry accessory socket / cigar lighter

    Had the fridge running in the car at the weekend from the front ciggie lighter socket. (ive got a 04 LS estate so no socket in the back or in the boot)

    Anyway went to use the lighter and it wouldnt push in all the way. Pulled it out and there was a piece of metal in there that had fell out of the fridges 12v socket.

    Pulled the bit of metal out with some needlenose pliers and popped the lighter back in, and pressed in the button...

    Now it wont pop up again, its stuck in, I suspect its probably shorted out.

    Anyway is there a fuse for this and if so which one is it as I dont have the original hand book for the car? (i dont want to pull out all of them one by one to check) Or is there another problem here?

    Cheers

    Fuse 22 (30amp) in the passenger side dashboard fuse box.

    You can download a handbook for your car from Vauxhall's website once you've signed up for 'my vauxhall' (for free)

    I've has a look in the back of my veccy 'facelift life estate' I have a small connector with brown and black wires, it is a T shape, from memory when fitting my car kit i think that this is the same connector as the front cigarette lighter, Does that mean that i can just buy the accessory socket and plug it in without having to add any wiring?

    I thought it was but couldnt quite make out the first picture with the connector in it.

    My local VX dealer is shocking at finding the parts on the computer, it took about 30 minutes of looking before i gave up and told them that i would go home and look on here, then give them a ring with the Traction Control Part No so they could order it for me!!
