No light on vehicle power cable


If this is a cigarette lighter plug, the fuse may be blown. Unscrew the top where it plugs into the cigarette lighter and check the fuse. But, more than likely the fuse in your car for the cigarette lighter is blown. Check the car fuse first.

No power coming from car lighter to Garmin GPS - lighter DOES work for other accessorys


It's probably the fuse in the charger that's blown. The fuse is in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. At the end of the plug there's a ring, usually silver coloured but sometimes black, which you unscrew to get at the fuse. When you unscrew it the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose the silver tip at the end of the plug which may fall out. You can get a replacement fuse at any shop that sells garmin satnavs or at any car accessory shop.

I just took my Garmin 1200 out of the box and plugged it into the cigarette lighter in my car and it did not work...I have a blank screen...my car is 12 years old!


No power at all?
Check your lighter socket to see if it's getting power (plug lighter in and see if it gets hot). Check the power plug on the provided cable. It contacts a fuse that may either be missing or blown. And last, check the connection of the cable as it plugs in the rear of the Nuvi.

Why won't it plug into my Toyota Highlandr power source or the lighter?


You need to check if the charger is working properly first before you can tell where the problem is from. Try to use the charger in another cars cigarette lighter or the power source, if it works there, then it means the problem is from your cars power source and cigarette lighter and if it does not work, then it means it is the charger that is faulty and need to be replaced. Hope this information was helpful.

I need to buy a plug for car . It is not charging tne GPS


You can get accessories including the car charger from http://www.gpsnow.com/Garmin_nuvi_255_Accessories.htm
However it's likely that if the car charger is not working that the fuse is blown. The fuse is in the plug that goes in the cigarette lighter socket. To get at it unscrew the ring at the end of the plug. Be careful not to lose the small metal tip. When you unscrew the ring the plug comes apart and you'll see the fuse. You can get replacement fuses at any shop that sells garmin satnavs or car electrical accessory shops.

Before changing the fuse make sure your cigarette lighter socket is working by testing it with the cigarettel lighter or some other accessory.

My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom


The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

If the unit works on battery but not the AC adapter or cigarette lighter adapter, obviously the problem is in the adapter.

1. Have you verified that you have +12VDC at your accessory jack?

2. Have you checked the fuse in the cigarette adapter?

What are you powering it with when not on the battery?
