Try another device like a cell phone charger. If that works it's your sons dvd player plug.

Ok thx my this question is about my f150 91 ford truck park lights don't work. Like the break lights work fine but lights don't come on at night and also my ashtray plug in isn't working and the dash


Have you checked all our fuses with a test light? Most of the time running lights and your cigarette Lighter are on the same fuse that would result in break lights working and running lights not. Check all fuses first. It will most likely be labeled as cigarette lighter or 12v acc or could be drl or just as tail lights

Cigarette lighter


YOU CAN PURCHACE A NEW 12V OUTLET AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE EASY TO INSTALL TOO. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH TRIM. TWIST THE HOUSING OF THE OLD ON TO THE LEFT AND IT WILL UNSCREW. REPLACE WITH A NEW ONE THE SAME WAY. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WIRES THAT WILL PLUG RIGHT IN.
