just got a car charger for my phone but my cig lighter wont work, few weeks ago i had a cheap and nasty car charger when plugged in made crackling noises so threw it away and i think it may have blown a fuse. But tried looking around and came across couple fuse box diagrams. it said fuse 24 so i changed this with another 10 amp fuse to see if it worked but no it didnt but now im getting a airbag failure come up when i start the car.

I've changed both fuses which are 24 and 42 with both brand new 10 amp fuses but it doesnt seem to work. i've been used the right hand side fusebox as u open the bonnet and cant seem to find the others?

Am i changing the right fuses in the right boxes?

"Stand away from the car"

Did you move the seat ? this can set the Airbag warning light off.

Best bet is to remove old lighter and buy a ebay one, They are cheap. then make sure your changing the right fuse.

Never use cheap chargers !
