Fuse number for the Cigarette Lighter socket

There is no power going to the cigarette lighter or the 12V Aux socket in the
arm rest. As both are not working I suspect it's the Fuse that's blown. Does anyone know the fuse number I need to check. I can't locate the number on the card that's attached to the fuse cover in the glove box.

Looks like fuse 30 will be the one that you need to replace..

Fuses you can pick up at radio shack.. Make sure to get the right size (amps and plug size). You can pull the fuse before you head to radio shack to make sure you get the right blade size. It's good to always have spares in the car anyhow.. I'd just leave any spares that might be in there, it's easy to just get new ones, and they're cheap..

Hope this works, let us know how it goes..

Josh

The fuse box is behind glove compartment.
there are 2 pull tabs that hold the access door.
