    I have the same problem with a Xantrex RS 3000, it shows a low battery fault, but the battery is not low. The unit will not come on.

    You cannot support 500w of load from a lighter receptacle. 200w is about max. If you need to support a 500w load, you need to mount the inverter next to the battery and then extend a 110v extension cord into the vehicle.

Some inverters will not work plugged into a standard lighter port. I had to wire an outlet direct from the battery, using #6 wire and a 30 amp fuse and all has been fine.

How do I fix or reset my inverter?


Low input voltage or current.
Bad input voltage sensor.
Test by connecting directly to battery (with jumpers or make an adapter). The wiring or connection to your power port (cigar lighter) may be bad.

If it works at the battery, it is the car wiring. If not, it will cost more than the 25 dollar price tag to have it repaired. Just replace it (tryhttp://search.harborfreight.com/cpisearch/web/search.do?keyword=inverter )

I need to know what size power inverter in watts and if they come with a car lighter plug


You won't do it. An inverter will keep a compressor running at maybe 200 or 300 watts but it won't start it up.

After I hook up the power inverter to the battery, the AC product does not operate and/or the red FAULT light comes on.


It would depend on what type of AC product you'r trying t operate. While your load maybe only 1,000 watts, the starting inrush current may be too much for your inverter. Try turning inverter on, and see if it powers up. Try pluggin in something very small. Another possibility is the 12V circuit you're plugging the unit into isn't large enough to carry the current, and the incoming voltage is dropping too low for the unit to operate. A 1000 watt inverter is too large to plug into your cigeratte lighter unless you're only operating a very small load. Usually they are connected right to the battery. If you do this be sure to fuse it there , and run large enough wire to the inverter. You should probably have about a #4-#6 copper wire for such a large inverter.

Trips out even with low load. battery voltage is good


you must know the given maximum watts of the inverter.Let me say its especification is a 500 watts:
You must have a load of not exceeding a 500 watts becos it will surely trip or the inverter might be burned.So,if you said you have a low load,be sure that the load you inter is lower than the given wattage of your inverter.Ifd you have a question,just give me a message so that i could help.

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

Why does the power inverter keep beeping when i plug up my laptop


If your not getting enough voltage to the inverter it will beep to let you know you don't have enough power. Most common cause is a lose connection thru your cigarette lighter. Also if you turn your key off it might be shutting down power to your plug.
Make sure you have a good connection with your battery or plug adapter. You also need a good battery so you don't go into a low voltage condition which will make your inverter beep.

Whister 1200 Inverter


if the inverter is wired to a lighter socket then you do not have enough power as lighter sockets are generally limited to 100-150 watts. If you are using the supplied battery clamps, then is the vehicle running to supply enough power to run your TV?

Hi, i've got a skytronic 300w soft start inverter making loud beep and then cutting out. I know its one of the safety cut outs but not which one. can it be repaired ? thanks


If your appliance draws over 300W or if your 12 v battery charge is low you will get a loud beep warning. Do you get the same beep with a low current appliance like a lamp? Make sure your battery has a good charge.

Some appliances have huge draw at start up even though they are rated under 300w your inverter may not be able to start.

Also some electric motors don't like modified sign wave inverters.
What are you trying to run and what is its rated watts?

I had my inverter beep when I had it connected via a cigarette lighter plug but when I used a connection straight to the battery it worked fine.
I was running a 500w grinder on a 1000w el cheepo inverter.
