I have the cigarette lighter fitted in my centre console lid but it's not connected with the wiring tucked in the bottom half and put away....(Previous owner special work)

So I thought I'll put it all back together but I don't know exactly where to put the wiring through the lid... Everywhere I try it seems it will cut into the wiring etc...

So if anyone could take a photo of there centre console with the lid open, so I can see where the wiring goes...that would be great

this is the type I have

Thank you for that... I finally refitted the wiring and cigar. lighter is working.

I don't understand why the wiring was cut, it had 4 wires completely cut and then tucked under the centre console with the wires close together.

Hey everyone! I'm a new commodore (VN BERLINA) owner and would like to know if anyone can help me out.
My ciggie lighter is in the middle console (near the auto selector) and I can't seem to locate the fuse box for this or to test if it's even connected. This car was treated pretty poorly before I got it and trying to restore slowly with a little TLC.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Truly.
Thanks in advance y'all! :beer chug:

The cigarette lighter fuse is the last one in the row (#15) in the fuse panel underneath the steering column.

I have found that often the 'lighter socket doesn't work because the terminal that connects it to power has broken off it.

Aha.... I've been still trying to locate the fuse box and still no luck. Is there a chance it could be somewhere else perhaps? Also as per the image above that jgtoranalc has supplied, my lighter is not on the back of the centre console, it's in the middle near the automatic window switches are... I've pulled out the lighter and checked the connection it's all good there, so by the sounds of it, it is just a fuse... UGH... the technicalities of it all...

The extra lighter socket in the back of the console is only on up spec. models like Calais and Statesman/Caprice.

There are only the two fuse block locations which are the one under the bonnet on the driver's side and the one behind the fold down cover immediately in front of the driver's knees.
