I cannot help you with the make of your vehicle but I once had random blowing of fuses in my Chrysler Spirit car. Sometimes the fuse would blow in a couple of days and sometimes a week or two would go by before the fuse would blow. I took a blown fuse and soldered a very small 12 bulb across the fuse's ends and pushed the combination- blown fuse/bulb into the fuseholder. One night as I opened my car door, this bright light came on and I knew that the cause of the intermittent blown fuses was somewhere inside of the door. I removed the panel and found that the insulation had worn off some wires. I taped the wires using electrical tape and had no further problems. Len at www.oshawarocks.com
AWG Positive wire should be connected to one side of a 30 A relay
(typical fog lamp relay available at most automotive stores).
relay's other 30 A contact should be connected to the battery positive
post via a 10 AWG (up to 6 ft/2 m)
First thing I should ask is have you tried to plug something else into the inverter to see if it is the inverter or a surge messed up your monitor and X-Box?
When you say turned off do you get a solid red light when the inverter is on and you are trying to get your X-Box and monitor to work? A solid red light means voltage overload.
A blinking red light means you are having a current overload.
If the internal alarm on the inverter goes off and shuts down with a red light this means you are having a voltage shortage.
If the red light starts to blink this is a temperature overload.
Keep in mind that this inverter will start automatically back up as soon as what ever issue it is detecting is resolved. There is no fuse to check inside.
If your inverter shuts down from thermal overload then wait 15 full minutes before trying to turn it on again.
If you don't have any blown fuses and no burned wires make sure that if you are using over 150 watts and hour you go right to the battery rather than a cigarette light adapter as the stress can burn them wires connecting to the cigarette lighter up.
FRIEND, INTEND TO BUY A XANTREX INVERTER 1200 PLUS, I AM NOT GETTING SHIPPING TO BRAZIL, YOU COULD SELL ME AND SEND BY MAIL TO BRAZIL, I PAY COSTS, SHIPPING TO BRAZIL, OR YOU HELP ME WITH A STORE THAT HAVE TO BRAZIL, MY EMAIL email@example.com
Sounds like it may have a bad power transistor, it will cost more to fix than replace. What is the story behind the question, last time it was used? Who borrowed it? It may have been overloaded ... $40-$70 should get you a new one.
