Ford Focus The fuse has gone for the "cigarette lighter

2055 Ford Focus Problem

The Problem:

Morning!

The fuse has gone for the "cigarette lighter" in my Focus for the 2nd time in 2 months. Not that Im a smoker, but I need it for Tim, the TomTom.

However, there was no fuse plan/map thing on the underside of the fuse box and the garage did it for free last time (doubt they'd be so generous this time).

Anyone know where I can find out which fuse it is so I can change it today? I have until 12.30 to buy the fuse when the local car parts shop closes.

Much appreciate any advice

Check this ,

Fuse 47 a 15amp fuse is for the cigarette lighter..it's located behind the glove box which you can drop down for easy access.
The "glove box" is the little box that opens on the left side, under the instrument gauges near the left door.......Not the big glove box on the right hand side.
This also worked on my 2002 Ford Focus diesel estate - Richard


Worked on a 2007 Ford Focus. Fuse box is on the drivers side. Located behind the CD holder box.

Hi , Not sure how long this question has been posted for But I have success!!!!
For the cigarette lighter fuse on uk models ford focus there is another 'hidden' fuse box behind the glove box.
Just unscrew three screws at the hinge of the glove box and bobs your uncle. Replace fuse 35 which is a 15amp fuse.
Hope this helps . And just one question for fun >> Why would you put the fuses there out of sight ??????

Mine got short-circuited when a phone charger broke inside it. April 1 2009 - not an April Fool, on my 2002 diesel Focus, I open the glove box door, then pull it out further (squeezing the sides), then can access fuses, on my version it's fuse 47, not 35. It was 20 amp (but I can't find the handbook so I don't know if it's supposed to be 20A). I live in Ireland, so it's probably a UK model, I don't know why it's different to Simon's.

I just replaced this for a 2005 Ford Focus and sure enough it was behind the little storage compartment on the left hand side of the steering wheel. We store CD cases in it. I pinched the two side walls together and the door opened wide and exposed the fuse panel. For this model it was Fuse #47 and it was for 20 amps. Replaced it and now things are working again.
Thanks for the above info, we also do not have the manual, so this made it a snap to fix.
