Centre console power supplies
« August 06, 2019, 08:45:36 »
Hi,
I have a 2015 i30 crd, which has two "cigarette lighter" power supplies in the centre console. I use one for a dashcam, one for my satnav.
The left one has failed. It's not the accessory - they both work in the right supply, neither works in the left.
In the owner's manual it seems there is only one common fuse, so does anyone have any idea if this is something I can repair easily (I'm not a techie type), am I missing another fuse, or is it a main dealer job?
Thanks in advance.

Yes itís only the one 15A fuse that I can see. Sometimes a bit of dust or dirt can affect the connection, other than that if itís been unplugged and plugged a lot it may of worn out.
If you are capable you can take the component out and switch them over to test it for sure, it would require removing facia panels and ac controls which is relatively easy and you should be able to do a quick change of wires on both sockets

I also have two spare power sockets which I could post one to you if you find out that one is faulty

I find them bulky, which is why I've installed USB sockets instead, as well as Qi wireless pad
