Check all fuses you have 2 fuse locations under the hood and on the dash. The covers for each box has fuse location the amps and what it controls. If you have a test light check all of them some fuses power up multiple things and everything is not listed on the panels.

Where is the power armrest control located?


It should be in the vicinity of the armrest....Is this a door armrest or center console armrest? In either case, the adjustment will be near to the armrest, like the seats have an adjustment at the hinge area.

How do you remove the center console in my 95 z28 camero


Remove the 2 screws under the armrest door that hold shifter trim. The front of the trim will just pop up since it's clipped in. There will be some wires for the ash tray light, you to unplug. There are some 10mm bolts inside the armrest, as well as 1 on each side near the front of the console.. If I remember correctly, been awhile. go slow and good luck.

You need to check your car manual, then look up fuse replacement, which will show you the locality of where the fuse is located and what amp it is. I.e. "15, 20"

How di I replace the armrest in a 2005 Mercedes c230 sedan


I am assuming you are talking about the front center armrest here. You have to start by removing the back cover of the center console along with the vent louvres if equipped. I think this will expose two screws that you need to remove and the armrest will pull out. If you are trying to remove the armrest because the latching mechanism has gotten out of sync, you can fix that in the car. If that's the case let me know and I'll try to walk you through the repair process.

My 2006 VW Beetle continuously blows the Accessory fuse utilized for the power port for the cigarette lighter and underneath the center console. The proper fuse was replaced. Only my phone plugged in when...


Hi Troy,

Without seeing the ports of the car and the plug of your charger, it would be difficult to diagnose with any certainty. I do have a suggestion however. Your note suggests that other devices do not cause the fuse to blow when they are used - it is only the charger for the phone. Since the charger works in other cars, it is probably not an overload condition due to a defective charger, but more likely a mismatched set of contacts between the plug and power port in your car when the two are mated. Some cars have slightly different sized power ports that can be either too tight or too loose for some plugs. Too tight ports could be causing parts internal to the charger's plug or car's power port to short together and blow the fuse.

We can get around this be using a different plug. The easiest way is to find a cord set that will plug into your car's power port and provides a simple extension for 1, 2 or 3 outlets. These can be found in auto parts stores and the automotive departments of stores like K-Mart, Sears, etc. Some examples look like these:

8_27_2012_9_46_33_pm.jpg
Insert the plug into the power port - and check that the fuse does not blow by checking the fuse - not by plugging something into the the outlet on the cord. If the fuse remains good, then it is safe to assume that the problem with your charger and the car's power port has been eliminated, and the car's power is available at each of the outlets of the new cord.

Try plugging the charger into the outlet of the new cord. If all is well, the charger should be working as expected. What we have done is removed the charger / car power port combination from the equation, by providing a different combination to do the same thing - but without the same physical connection that causes the fuse to blow.

You could achieve the same results by changing the charger plug under the right conditions - but many chargers now a days have circuitry inside them that change the car's 12 volts to something different. If you can find the voltage out of the charger and are able to match it with another - it must be the same voltage, polarity, current and phone power connector of course - it should work, too. You must be absolutely sure of the power requirements and your rewiring - if not, stick with the addition of a cord described above.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How do I connect and play my iPod in a 2011 dodge charger?


If there is no auxiliary port on the front of the stereo, then you will have to try and find an iPod interface cable that you can wire into the factory stereo. You can use the FM modulator type of iPod adapters, but the sound isn't as good as when it is hard wired. You can look for the iPod interface kits online at a lot of car audio stores. Try www.sonicelectronix.com
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Aux cable snapped of inside external Audio port (AUX). an ideas on how to get the piece out? or does anyone now how to take the AUX port out of the console? 2008 crv, center console unit.


I have a 2007 CRV which had the same issue. I fixed this by:
- first removing the AUX port cover by carefully prying it up from both the rear-facing and front-facing edges. Once done, this exposes the AUX port mechanism itself.
- Using some needlenose plyers, I pulled out the AUX port component. It simply slides out.
- The trick now is to PUSH the broken piece out of the inside of the port. To do this, I first removed the "cover" that is covering the end of the port (opposite from the opening to the port). Be very careful with this step as you don't want to break the cover. It's very thin plastic.
- Once this cover is removed, I used a pin to push the piece that was lodged inside back out of the opening.
Reassembly was the opposite of this and was quick.
Hope that helps.
- Dave
