Try rotating the device end of the plug(part in the socket), sometimes it doesnt connect the two links inside.

Also it could just have a short in it. even though the car is fairly new.

Try another device, and check to see if it's not the device chargers itself. Try to use your cigarrette adapter. If that doesnt work than you have a short in the wiring. IT is easily and cost freindly to replace.

Good luck.

12 volt cigarette lighter socket

the lighter socket will be straight 12 volts and the GPS may require less (5.5 volts) and the different size is to prevent the over voltage and damaging the GPS unit. There may be an adaptor that will do the job and it may have a built- in transformer for the purpose.

Is there an adapter that can be used on a car cigarette lighter for plugging in appliances?

Your best bet is to check on eBay for an adapter - the Asians make all sorts of stuff for cars now & i'm sure there is an adapter out there suited for your purposes. P.S. It may sound silly but are you sure you are using the actual cigarette lighter socket & Not a power outlet socket that many cars are now fitted with as standard?, my phone charger fits the cigarette socket but not the power outlet?, you never know?

Daughter put a dime in car charger opening, after removing dime phones will not charge, pulled the 20a fuse for cig/car charger and replaced it with a new one, still does not work???

is there power in wire to lighter. if not the coin may have shorted the wiring out. to check it, run a wire from a 12 volt source to the lighter. if it works then hook this wire to it, and put a fuse in the line some where. good-day ! but leave the old fuse in its own spot. it may be powering something else. if not just remove it.

2007 toyota camry brake lights not working but third one is

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the bulb of the rear tail lights. If it's faulty it won't work properly. The bulb is a double contact 12 volts. Have it replaced and you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

On my 98 intrepid 2.7 I have changed the battery twice and the alternator twice due to slow loss of power until it has a total loss of power. it takes about a week for this to happen. what is draining the...

Are you familiar on how to perform a current draw, by using a 12 volt test light? This will help isolate what circuit in your electrical is causing the draw, provided battery good, and alternator has been confirmed good. Simple to do, only takes your time, and a 12 volt test light, or any 12 volt bulb and socket you may have in the garage. Get back to me, for instructions if your not familiar with procedure.
One thing i will ask is, about the stereo, is it factory, or has someone changed it to aftermarket? That is a good place to start looking if it's not a factory stereo system. 12 volt plug in spots in interior are another, such as sockets for cell phone adapters to plug in etc.

I want to replace the navigation unit in my 2002 camry with one from a 2007 camry. Most of the plugs on the back of the units are identical -- except for the black plug. The 2002 unit is a Fujitsu Ten...

You are not going to be able to perform this replacement scenario. Due to the fact that you are dealing with 2 different manufacturers, the wiring is different. There is no cable that is available to give you what you want.
Actually, there is a second component in the NAV system, that is what the unique cable plugs into. If you want to switch the NAVs , you need both components, and the correct wiring harness.

Hopefully, I have saved you a considerable amount of time and effort. Thanks for considering FIxYa fo advice.

you have an electrical problem. take it to an electrical mechanic. it's a small problem but you need it fix. if the dealer is saying it is the duel adapter for the cell and gps then maybe it is pulling too much power? why all those surfs in the car then? foolishness. it's an electrical problem. make sure you ask if the mechanic is a electrical mechanic before he start work on the car. their are diffirent type of mechanics. trust me i had the problem before.

1996 Cavalier 12 Volt power outlet in car doesn't work right?

Even thought the plug in is 12 volt. It's ouput is different. Most electronics have different ranges from 3-9 volts.
Does the 12 volt charger put out 12 volts? If so, it would burn up the electronics' capacitors on their power supplies.
How is the car's electronics doing? Are they too failing? If so, that would be a faulty voltage regulator, if not, I would hook up anything you use to the radio wires.
You cannot plug in anything directly to battery no matter what the person told you. Batteries charge, than release charge, a contiuous cycle. The power output is speratic and anything hooked straight up to the battery will need a fuse.
