Question about 1993 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

My daughter has a 1993 GEO. ref: to the ciggarette lighter, there is none (for her cell phone hook up) so we purchased a female plug part to replace that. I need to know (of the two wires coming out of the dash area) which one is the hot wire and which one is the ground. There is a solid grey wire and a white wire with a black stripe. Which one is the hot wire?

I can not figure which fuse goes to my ciggarette lighter in my 2008 camry le

It is probably associated with some interior group, such as glove box or something. Usually something else will not work when the lighter blows. If its still working..plug in something with a light..then one by one pull an interior item fuse...youll soon know.

I have a factory radio in my yukon and want to use my Ipod in the truck. Does it have a usb connect and how do I get to it?

if it has a cassette player, get a cassette that has an mp3 attatchment at the end, could be bought at a radioshack, if no cassette player, then get an fm transmitter, it hooks up to your ciggarette lighter, if it has none of those, then get a new stereo headunit.

The radio and clock display do not work on my 1993 geo prizm. Fuse for cigarette lighter is good. How do I fix this?

Hi, the most likely thing that has happened is the back lights in the screen have burnt out and need to be replaced or just purchase a new radio. Good luck

My car completely shut down

If the cigar lighter is starting to smoke then there must be short in it somewhere. I would disconnect cigar lighter and see if that makes any difference.
If it does then replace the cigar lighter.
