Hi,I'm assuming fuse was replaced to get lighter operational again,have you tried another cable in the USB?

The cable works in the cigarette lighter connection but not USB and yes I changed the fuse.

The USB connection is the most likely problem then ,you need to purchase the adapter from your dealer,would you like to discuss how to remove center console to replace it?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Sure and why do we need an adapter for the USB?

The USB adapter is the link to the radio,it most likely has a poor internal connection so it needs to be replaced.
