Mark :

Hello. My name is Mark and I will try help you with this.

Mark :

Most likely cause for this would be a blown fuse. If you have the handbook for the car then this will have a list for all the fuses and there location. Replacing the fuse should cure the fault.

Mark :

If the fuse is not the cause then either the socket is faulty or the wiring to it. If this is the case then it will require a multimeter to check the circuit and socket.

Mark :

If this were to be taken to a garage for repair then I wouldn't expect it to cost more than £40 to repair.
