cigarette lighter - possible relay fault?

Cigarette lighter socket has been a bit hit and miss for a while then the other day stopped working altogether.

Decided to change it for a USB outlet, ordered up from Ebay and it arrived today.

Fitted it in but didn't work so checked fuse, which had blown.

Replaced fuse but still no joy. Have measured feed with multimeter but only getting between 1 and 2 volts.

Could it be the relay? if so anyone know how can you test a relay?

Depending which fuse box you have, which you can check here: MG F/TF Fuse & Relay Listing you either have or do not have relay for Cigar Lighter.
