    Does anyone know/confirm which exact fuse does the 12v socket?

    GOLF GTI MK4 (52 plate)

    The 12v outlet doesn't seem to be working,Not sure if its knackered or just the fuse has gone...we need it for the Sat Nav to plug into. ;)

    Fuse 41 I think - on the right hand outer side of the dashboard.

    Had the same problem in my friend's newly acquired Golf where some bright spark had put a penny in the cigarette lighter socket.

    Yeah fuse 41, should be a 15A fuse.

    Just took a look..took off the cover at the side of the dash and it confirms there bank 41 for 12v cig lighter.

    However there is a blue fuse and its 20A in bank 41 which i thought was odd as it should be 15A?

    Anyway took out the 20A and put in a new 15A...still nothing. :/

    If it's had a larger fuse in than recommended and there was a short it may have fried your wiring instead of a fuse. Time to get out a voltmeter and start pulling off trim :(
    You could check the socket's earthed properly/getting power to start with I suppose..
