Hi All,

While inflating the tyres of my MKX 2009, I blew the fuse of the cigarette lighter plug in the dashboard (photo below).

 

Where is the fuse located exactly and what's the replacement model/specs? The digital tyre compressor is working fine in the other outlets.

 

Cheers.

Is that really a cigarette lighter outlet, or a power point? Don't know what they spec it for the in the Middle East, I think omar302 will know for sure though. In the U.S., I believe it is Fuse 17, 64, 65, and 66 (all 20 A) - Cigar Lighter/Power Point in the underhood fusebox.

Middle East modifications wouldn't change such things. But here any power outlet in a car that looks like the cigarette lighter plug is named so.

Thanks guys. Yes, it's definitely a cigarette plug since the actual lighter is always in my glovebox (don't smoke, no one in my car is allowed to either).

 

Thanks for the link too. I'll do a DIY if I can find that fuse.

Guys, I found these in the Carrefour here (I'm there right now but can't figure out which model to buy since they're two different sizes)

 

Suggestions?

Per the OM, you need a cartridge fuse (Look more like a printer cartridge). So neither of what you have in the pic you posted.

 

I think you need to look for something like this:

The blue 20A 12V fuse would be what you need. Remember, the battery needs to be disconnected while you pull/replace these underhood fuses.

Thanks, I'll look for these. I already bought the two I showed in the photo since they cost 1 USD each so I'll use them in my other cars.
