We will use an USB car charger to check if the cigarette lighter is working. If there is no red light on so the cigarette lighter probably it’s because it doesn’t work. We tried on the 12V outlet from the back and it doesn’t work also.

2. Press both sides of the storage compartment to pushing it down
You can take it out to have acces at the fuse and relay box.
3. Replace the 20V fuse from the 31 position (or 54 position) with a new one with the same voltage
