Customer Question

I have a 2011 saab 9-3 turbo4 and I blew the fuse to my cigarette outlet that is located in the center console. Which fuse do I need to replace? Could you tell me where and what # ***** to replace? I don't have a clear diagram to go by. Again, it is the fuse in the center console...not the one in the front of the vehicle below the temperature controls.

The fuse is not blown. Do I need to order a new cigarette outlet? If so...how and where do I order from? How much? Thanks for the quick response.

IF you cannot test for voltage + on "both sides", replace the fuse just in case
Fuses can "look good", but still be bad.
Prior to replacing Outlet, you need to probe the "center" of the Outlet with a Test Light or Volt Meter to be sure the Outlet is bad.
The "center" should show Voltage +
Be careful NOT to touch the inside "sides" with probe, as the sides are Ground -
Many times you can replace with Universal available at most Auto Parts Stores, but will need slight modification or:
