Resolved Question:

Collected my Caddy Maxi C20 TDi on Tuesday.
Have a challenge, my 12v power socket which I need for Sat Nav etc is dead! Manual says the fuse for the 12v socket is number 53 on the dash fuse box, however, there is no fuse in #53 which could explain why its dead - except there is only one connection point at #53, nothing for the fuse to bridge. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Hello and welcome to just answer
I have just checked my information and it does as you say show the 12V socket as fuse 53 but it also lists the cigarette lighter under fuse 47. I would check that one next and see if it is blown or not. If you have no luck with that please feel free to come back with me for further help. If you could let me have your chassis number if you need further help that would help me a great deal.
Regards
Dave

Hi Dave,

Had a look at fuse #47 as suggested, you got it right! Replaced fuse and system is working - thanks.
