Hi all I have recently picked up a sports coupe c220 which is great but has a few niggles. One being the power socket has lost its ignition feed. I have checked the fuse is ok and there is battery feed at the fuse but got no feed at socket. Traced the wire back to where the parrot kit is wired...
The cigar lighter is inside the front ashtray on my 1995 124-series cabriolet. Right underneath it is a "slider" - see pic. It's not mentioned in the handbook, so what does this do, please?
The socket comes live only with the ignition switch into the accessory or drive positions ... and the...
Can anyone enlighten me as to the connections to the cigar lighter in my e class. I'd like to use it as a hard wired power point for a phone charging cable, as it's easy to get to and close to the phone holder location.
There are three connections -
Brown (assuming ground)
I am trying to locate the fuse for the cigar lighter in my SL, the manual shows where the fuse box is , but doesn't give you allocations of the fuses, nothing in the lid either, I need to charge my phone while driving, as I am off to Germany soon.
Decided today was the day to fit a replacement cigar lighter in the viano boot. This is the one located to the right side near the jack.
The reason was that the old one had a broken cover, and the inside of it was oxidised - it didn't work. I assumed this was due to the oxidation preventing a...
As in the thread title, really. Does anyone know it? My cigar lighter removable element is missing - the car came from a small-time dealer, so of course it is... Can a kind soul tell me the part number, or do you need the VIN? (WDB2102742A762429).
I recently bought a 2008 Vito 639 and have found that the dash cigar socket doesn't work.
I'd like to find the dash fuse box and identify the correct fuse for the cigar socket.
I've tried researching this and have found information suggesting that the dash fuse box is located either behind...
Both front and rear cigar lighters are not working.
I have checked all the fuses, i think.
Are they connected to any other systems?
Also, how the hell do I get the ash tray out of the front.... plaese don't tell me I need to take out the whole center console..:mad:
The cigar lighter in my W203 saloon does not light up at night,also the cigar lighter does not latch but there is power to the socket as I can use a charger.
Although I do not smoke I do like things to work properly, especially to illuminate where they should so how do I remove the assembly to...
Being a mb forum, im sure there must be the odd cigar smoker in here!
I've been enjoing the very occasional cigar for years now, but have always bought singles. I was recently given a few, and seeing it will be months before i get through them, i think its time i got a humidor.
I have asked this question before but never got a definitive answer and it has always puzzled me.
In the ashtray compartment of my 2001 W210 E220cdi I have a switch next to the cigar lighter. It has a straight line with some wavey lines above it.
What is this switch, what is it...
I installed an extra cigar lighter socket in the ash tray compartment by tapping into the wiring for the socket in the cup holder compartment.
I inserted the USB charger into the new socket and the led lit up to say it was powered (great) so i plugged my iPhone in and also plugged it into...
Been trying to replace my complete cigar unit with a universal one, all my wiring in place but no heat going to lighter.
The bulb lights up and the fuse etc is all correct but no heat going to it.
When i put the unit over another battery it powers fine so it would point to the car.... anyone any...
On my 06 W211, I'm looking to take a switched 12v feed from the cigar lighter.
There are 3 wires, a brown, a grey and a red with a white stripe.
Is the red wire a switched 12v? And is the brown an earth?
If so, what's the grey one?
