Good Morning,

My googlefu is weak today; cant find any possible answers/solutions.

My 08 LR3 keeps blowing 12v outlet fuses. the cigarette lighter outlet works fine.

We've used the same accessories in both outlets before the problem started.

Anybody know of any known, previously diagnosed problems with the outlets?

I just saw that there is a known front fog light short circuit with a chafed wire.

thanks in advance,

Sometimes things like coins can get jammed at the bottom of the outlet and cause shorts. Does the fuse blow right away, before you plug anything in?
