Hi,

The fuse to my cigarette lighter socket just blew, can I take the fuse from the horizontal row (same amp of course) ?
I assume those are not in use?
Thanks!

Show us a picture of the cover which shows what the fuses go to. Looks like the center row is just spare fuse storage but shoot the picture just the same. Which model and year?

Oh, this is the fuse box under the cover, in front of the windshield. I looked in the owner's manual, and the one that blew is for "aux power" (upper left corner in the photo).
My car is 2006 Elise.
Thanks,

If you'd pulled a fuse from middle row, you'd see if there were metal contacts below it or not.

If not, it's a spare. Keep a bunch of diff fuses in your car.

mid-life, so your parking light stopped illuminating, so you replaced that fuse?

check the fuses for what doesn't light up with a digital voltmeter/multimeter. (Visual inspections don't always tell the truth.)

There are great for use around the house and in the cars, and inexpensive.
