Are you sure, the fuse size is recommended for that radio? If so, check to see if your connection is shorting or grounding out, that will blow fuses like they're going out of style.

My inside light, radio and lighter went out how do I fix it on 1992 GMC sierra


Check for a blown fuse. Replace fuse. If it blows the fuse right away, then you have something shorting out the circuit.

Fuse panel is probably located under the dash board, to the left of the steering column.

IF you're using the cigarette lighter as an actual lighter and not as a 12 volt plug for a phone charger, THEN I would suspect the heating element of the lighter itself.

Hope this helps.

Keeps blowing fuse


Most likely the clutch on your ac compressor has stopped working or the entire compressor has seized. The blower will still work, but without the clutch working correctly int won't cool like it should. While possible to replace just the clutch on a compressor, it's generally better to replace the entire assembly.

Cigarette lighter fuse blows out too often, which one is it I changed all the 20A fuses, but cannot figure out which one it is beyond this I use the lighter to power my satelite radio


its not a 20 amp fuse,its a 5amp fuse, I had an XM Roady and its the plug they use on the radios power supply plug,they are cheap, buy a new cig lighter plug and wire it to the XM Radio power supply plug, and it will cure your problem

When i plug the lighter radio fuse blows up


Hello Javedkr.
You probably have a short in the lighter that is causing the fuse to blow.
Fairly common problem. Sometimes the whole assembly will need to be replaced as the socket or the lighter may be causing it.
