If you got a voltmeter test it. Its probably the lighter itself thats knackered.

Re: New Brava, cigarette lighter not working

another electrical fault! that could also be the cause of the noise you described in the other thread (although locking if far more likely).

check the fuse for the lighter, check there is power and earth at the wires, and if it all checks out then replace it with a scrapyard part.
