I have just registered on the forum, when you say, one of the vendors, can you pls post a link?

Go there and select the parts catalog, select your vehicle and search for "lighter".
The fuse is thermal, that is why it's in the socket itself. It protects against a potential electrical fire if the socket overheats.
When I try to add it to cart or buy it, I can't, can you see if it is on their end or mine?
