    Cigarette Lighter Sockets

    Hi All, Just recently my 12v cigarette lighter ports stopped working for charging my phone etc. I have an adaptor with 2x USB ports in it and it always worked fine and was plugged in to the rear 12v socket behind the handbrake etc. Last week it stopped working and i cant work out why. It doesnt work in either of the rear 2 ports or the front one in the ash tray. I have changed the fuses in the boot and yesterday tried the actual cigarette lighter in all 3 ports and it worked in all 3!? Does anyone know what might be going on here or any suggestions for what i should test / take apart etc? Is there some circuit board somewhere that detects the device load and automatically cuts the voltage to 5v for example? Many thanks Wayne
  2. I have a front and rear dash cam I'm trying to hardware into my E60. Through research I've gathered it's best to fit the live wire directly to the battery in the boot and use the cig lighter fuse for a tap. My problem is getting the cig lighter plug from the cabin into the boot. I've wired it to the C-pillar panels and down the side of the rear seat. I've managed to get it through the door trim and seat bolster where I can see a part of the loom. However it's impossible to get it through there. I've tried between the seat base and rear where the isofix is but there's no gap through there. Any ideas?
