    Cigarette lighters not working - fuse issue? Now the fm radio & iPod dock being odd!

    Hey everyone!

    I have a 2006 Saab 93 Vector Sport 1.9 Saloon.

    Recently (possibly after a service) my cigarette lighters ceased to work - both of them. On the dash and under the armrest. They don't charge my sat nav and the green rings that surround them are not lit.

    I checked both fuses (in the passenger side of the front cabin) numbers 10 and 22 I I think. The armrest one was blown snd the other was okay. I replaced them both with two others (windscreen ones, still 30s) but it still didn't work.

    Later, my radio now can't seem to pick up FM radio (well, it picks up ONE station and scrolls through the frequencies much faster than usual) and my Dension Icelink which is hard wired into the FM radio and charges my iPhone/iPod now no longer works.

    This is driving me crazy. I cant get an appointment with my Saab dealer for a while and I'm away for a week.

    Does anyone have any ideas?


    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure. It was fitted by a car audio company - the wires go in behind the radio head unit. And it plays the iPod / iPhone on a selection of FM frequencies. Sorry I can't give more help!

    Thanks for all your help! The units I was using to test them were faulty. Have replaced fuses and now all works! For £1.99! SO HAPPY! Cheers all.
