    Another dumb question - I take it you've got the ignition switched on as they are not permanently live.

    Just get a multi meter and test the wires from the socket,if theres power going to it then maybe the sockets just faulty

    You have the wrong size of lighter, the New sockets have a flat bed at the bottom. Ive bought and returned 2 cigarrete lighters from halfords. Its hopeless, trying ebay now.
