Rear power socket not working

Hi. The power socket in my boot doesn't appear to be working. It's not the fuse (I checked #28 under the dash, which I think is the one?). Are there any other common faults, before I start having to look for a broken wire, er, somewhere...?

The front cigarette lighter does work, when it decides to (a) allow things to fit into it; (b) stay in the dash.

Thanks for any advice

Ooh, forgot to mention that, so thanks. But sadly yes. I've tried it at I, at II, and (just to make sure) with the engine running.

Remove the socket from it's housing in the boot, could be an unconnected wire from new, if you have never used it.

I just bought the car second-hand. I'll take a look. Is there any special trick to removing it?

Others will have to tell you that.
But - It has been known on here, for Honda or the Dealerships to forget connections within the boot.

Right. I've just had a play, and I can't see any way of getting the panels off without applying more force than I'm comfortable doing when I don't know that it's the right way, if you see what I mean. I shall go ask in the General forum

Have you checked the fuse, the rear socket has a different fuse to the front 1? 28 I believe from memory is teh fuse for the front socket

My 2.2 type S had the same problem.
Nobody had connected the wiring at the fuse panel

It was done under warranty anyway

That seems entirely feasible. For the moment I've added it to the short list of "things to ask about next time it's serviced".
