Common problem with SLK230 Cigarette Lighter Port

Hey everyone,

I had a problem with the Cigarette Lighter Port and went to the dealer... wanted to replace the whole assembly ($600.00) =(... So I decided to fix it myself...

It was the fuse located under the hood.

I did a search and found no threads pertaining to this faulty common problem...

So located and replace the fuse and it should be 100% working Again!

Was not aware it was common but I too was afflicted by this malady...

Amazing how creative you can get when they want $600 for a 10 cent fuse!

I can say it has not blown since replacement of the fuse.
