Question about 2006 Acura MDX
Our radar dectector was plugged into the front power outlet... we noticed it wasn't working and when we jiggled it the navigation system, radio and front outlets all went out. We've checked all the fuses and none of them are blown... any suggestions?? I have a 2006 MDX and the same thing happened when I plugged my cell phones car charger into the power outlet in the center console. I heard a pop like a fuse had blown, but after further investigation and even replacing a few fuses it still doesn't work.

The solution is to buy a new mini fuse (Blue #15) at an autonation or similar. Open the passenger side kick plate fuse box and pull out the fuse in position #9 (upper most left fuse). You will need needle nose pliers or tweezers etc... Insert new fuse and you are done. 50 cent repair and 30 seconds spent screwing with it. Enjoy! Oh, and don't worry about blowing it again. Best I can say is when starting the car, unplug the power sucking device like a radar. Once car is on you can re-insert it the radar. The initial jolt of powering everything on all at once is what blew your fuse in the first place. Get a few additional fuses to have on hand just in case.
