  • We have a 2015 A1 and the cigarette lighter / 12 V charger is not working. There is no fuse in the number 3 position. Seems like that socket has nothing in to hold a fuse. Can the fuse be in a different position?

  • Hi did you ever find out where the cigarette lighter / 12V charger fuse was located? I have the same issue with my Audi A1 2017 model
