I'm assuming you own a TT.. in which case, yes.. the CLA should have a fuse. I wouldn't recommend replacing the fuse yourself in case you get the amps wrong and burn out your TT. check that the green light on the CLA comes on.. if not, then you probably don't have the CLA in right. Otherwise, you can purchase a replacement TomTom CLA online somewhere.

    I'm not sure which one you have, but if you have the typical charger, there is plastic fuse in the side of the base of the charger (where the charger plugs into the car). It will take some pliers to get it out.

    Yeah it looks like a little plastic, translucent tab. Its inserted perpendicular to the charger.

Upon starting my truck if I leave map sensor plug in it don t load up as but it still does some unplug it after it warms up runs good but it bucks and misses computer port won't read diag.tool


year/make/model helps greatly!! Most problems with scan tool connections at diagnostic plugs are lack of power at the plug. The power normally comes from the lighter fuse. If the lighter is not working, suspect no power to plug. I wouldn't toss parts at the vehicle until you get a heads up from a diagnostic scan and retrieve any codes that may pertain to your issue

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.

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.

How can I get my cigarette light plugs to work. There is no mention in manual except for the rear plug?


Hi,

I believe the first step is to be sure what the problem actually is by attaching your test light clip to ground and poking the pointy end at the center in the bottom of the socket where the lighter element plugs in. While the key is on you should have power and the test light will light up. If it doesn't light up use your test light to check the fuses, if you find any broken fuses replace them and check the lighter again. On my '89 camry the lighter didn't work and I had to remove the radio to find that the wire that goes to the back of the lighter had come disconnected. In your case I suspect that you will solve the problem by purchasing a new lighter element and/or replacing the fuse because it is very seldom that anything else goes wrong with the cig lighter.

Best regards.

I cannot charge my cell phone through the 12 volt outlet. When I insert the charger plug nothing happens. I suspect a probem with the fuses, but my 2nd hand Galant came with no owner manual to check.


it could be the fuse , but also the wire could be off the back or lighter is defective. Take the lighter out and check the voltage coming in. If you have power there then the lighter itself needs replacing. The fuse for you lighter will be under the dash inside. It's safe to pull the fuses out one by one to see if any are burned. If so, replace with same amp fuse. This is a way to check for fuses when no manual is available. t the most, you will have to reset your clock and radio stations.

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

Cigarette plug does not work


Try plugging something else into the lighter socket,,,if it is getting power then you should suspect the phone charger, if it isnt,,then suspect the fuse,,,just open the fuse box cover and you will find the list and description of all the fuses and their locations there.
