Blue 1.1 Active 2007 44k

Some of you may know me from the classic panda section

This is my wifes new (to her) car, its a 1.1 active 2007 with only 44k on the clock. Its a little minter in all honesty, though all the windscreen wipers need replaced (parts on order from ebay) and it doesnt have the cigarrette lighter. I have ordered the correct part from partsworld, only 16 odds and if I am lucky I will have the cable and fuse already present so its just plug and play! If not I hope to use the correct panel and run a wire to the battery with an inline fuse somehow. Does anyone have any tips on doing that? (as opposed to running one from inside the glovebox or on top of the dash for example as I have seen others do)

All I have done to it so far is replace one of the rubber bungs from the fuel flap door, its still missing one, but without any at all the door sits in too far and it was bugging my OCD. Really hard to fault this car though, its very original and has been kept really nicely

Love the little car anyways, very different from my 1991 750L, but lovely

Re: Blue 1.1 Active 2007 44k

Checked under the panel and the connector block was there for the cig socket, with 3 wires (black, blue and red/yellow) checked the fuse and the F85 was not present, but I put a 20A fuse in and it did seem to go in satisfactoraly and be held so im hoping the underneath has all it needs. Turned on the ignition and checked the voltage. Getting a reading of 12v with the negative pointer on the black and the positive pointer on the red/yellow. I hope this means that it will work, but can someone let me know if my thinking is correct?

Re: Blue 1.1 Active 2007 44k

It arrived in 3 pieces, I've assembled them and when my wife comes back this evening I will fit it. Really hopeful it works. Notice there is space for a bulb in the orange plastic, but I don't recall seeing a fitting for one on the car. No matter but thought it worth pointing out

Re: Blue 1.1 Active 2007 44k

I've bought a 2007 Panda, and one of the most annoying things (although there are only a few in all honesty) is the fact it doesn't have a cigarette lighter. So many gadgets rely on it these days :-( I'm not a techie so I don't think it would be wise for me to fiddle around with something like that, changing the original radio was hard enough ;-)

Fit a USB socket with voltmeter and you can keep an eye on your battery at the same time...

If you can change the radio, a USB/ciggy lighter socket would be a doddle.

Make sure you get a high power USB socket. They are not all equal.

No power to the blue wire unfortunetly but there is power to the one next to it, tempted to stick a scotch block on it but scared it will **** up the ecu in some way
