On my 2000 Jetta TDI GLS, I have no functional cigarette lighter. I don't smoke but would really like the 12V.

I looked up and saw that the fuse is the most likely culprit for the socket to not work. I checked and saw fuse 41 ws indeed shot. I went and bought another 15A fuse and installed it. Within seconds, the fuse burned out also.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

something somewhere is shorting and blowing the fuse. did it blow when you plugged something in?

sorry for taking so long to reply. I hadn't had time to check.

Yes, the fuse pops after putting it in. I'll need to track down the gremlin.

Nice looking car, by the way!
