This is due to a blown fuse, check all the fuses, the power port fuse is mostlik;y in the underhood fuse box, but also check the inside fusebox, good luck and i hope this is helpful.

The dome light, glovebox light, and cigarette lighter on my 1979 el camino have no power, and I believe they run off the same fuse. The lettering on the fuse box is gone, I don't have a manual and I can't...

Why not check every fuse in the fuse panel in 5 minutes or less, without pulling a single fuse out to inspect it? You can do it with a cheap test light, and even tell if the fuse panel is powered, too.

All fuses have two little test ports on the plastic top of the fuse, one at each end of the fuse. They can be used to tell if a fuse is good or blown. The little ports are open to the metal strip inside the fuse, the strip that snaps apart when the fuse blows.

Hook up a test light by clipping the ground lead to a metal bracket or a bolt or screw by the fuse panel. Turn the key to on, not start. Now every fuse in the fuse panel should be powered. Pick a fuse and touch the test light probe into the little test port on the fuse, either side. Test light should light. If not, either the ground clip for tester is not secure, or the fuse panel is not getting power to that fuse as it should with the key on, or you just happened to pick a blown fuse. Move tester probe to other end of fuse and see if power there. Keep on until your tester lights up when touching the little port on the fuse.
Got it? Okay, now with every fuse, you need to touch tester to both ends of fuse to verify a good fuse. Key is on, all fuses are powered up, so even a blown fuse will light the tester on one end of fuse. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse-the metal strip inside has not snapped apart-good fuse.

You can use this method to check every fuse on a car without pulling the fuse out to check. And you will find out if any part of the panel is not powered up. Test lights are very handy. You could check every fuse quicker than it took me to explain this!

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:


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!

12v power port (not cigarette lighter) with radar detector connected killing battery without car running

it sucks power through anything it's plugged into, like a power outlet on a wall, even something turned off takes a tiny amount from it. you have to unplug it every time you cut the car off. or did you want someone to tell you a way to rig it! that's why you have a freaking radar detector, you're a speeder, you should just get rid of the damn thing honestly, they can ticket a parked car with one of those.

Hard brake pedal

Sounds like power brake problems. First thing to check (engine idling) is the vacuum hose connection at the large donut-like cylinder behind the brake master cylinder--does it have good vacuum when the hose is removed. If not, chase the hose to the other end which should be plugged into intake manifold vacuum port--remove the hose and check for vacuum at the port. If ok, the hose may be plugged. If you tested good vacuum at the cylinder, then the power cylinder itself may need to be replaced. You may be able to replace the cylinder without disconnecting the brake lines--pull the master cylinder bolts, then remove the power cylinder bolts from the inside of the firewall. Hope this helps!
