Question Cigerete Lighter stopped working - fuse OK

I have a '96 1.9 TD and the cigerete lighter has stopped working. (I don't smoke, but its handy for the compressor, mobile phone...) I have checked the fuse and it is Ok. I have taken the dash apart, and the connections look intact, any other ideas?

Make sure the contacts are ok in the lighter itself, and that there is no Foreign objects stopping your plug from making a proper contact.
All the best.

Have you checked for a live at the center pin & a earth on the lighter casing yet?

And more obviously, the plug behind the lighter.

Thanks for the replies!

I have checked the wiring out and there is no power to the unit. Is there another fuse somewhere?
