    Hi All
    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.
    Many thanks
    Ian

    25 amp seems too large to me if there is a problem you might melt the wiring, always put in the correct fuse size. Its done for a reason

    well the correct one is supposed to be a 30 amp, I might drop it down anyway as it is only going to be used for phone charging.

    The fuse layout changed considerably for MY2009 - particularly the fusebox behind the right hand seat (and I think the fuse chart ended up in the main manual at that point). I have some recall some changes around 2004/2005.

    The fuse chart is normally in the boot with the toolkit (and spare fuses) on a SL

    Cheers
