My cigarette lighter and other charging ports will not work…

Customer Question
My cigarette lighter and...

My cigarette lighter and other charging ports will not work on my 2014 BMW 328d

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 328d yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes myself researching online just pulled the card out of the cargo area fuse box the card with all the numbers and symbols symbols on it.. the chart that is located in the rear cargo fuse box so just now starting out probably a 20 amp fuse

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

Yes mine has one in the engine compartment and the cargo area the manual does not have chart for the fuses to my knowledge it just tells me where they are located which I already knew just trying to get help to save time
