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.

WHEN i ASKED FOR THE THIRD TIME, HOW LONG UNTIL I SHOULD WAIT FOR YOU TO FIND OUT WHERE THE FUSE IS LOCATED FOR MY CIGAR LIGHTER, WHICH I WANT TO PLUG IN A GPS TO, YOU KEEP TELLIN ME ALL FEILDS MUST ME...


Hello,

The fuses on vehicle power cables are located inside the plug end that goes into the vehicle power port (cigar lighter port). The end of the plug will have the positive contact and a cap which is unscrewed to access the fuse.

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 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.

Hi, My Garmin nuvi 350 just stopped working. I had it plugged into cigarette lighter and also tried a 2nd plug in area in my car. Nothing! I read on 1 website that the silver cable tip may need a new...


There's a fuse in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. To get at it unscrew the ring at the end beside the silver tip. When you take the ring off, being careful not to lose the silver tip, the plug comes apart. Take out the fuse and take it to any car electrical suppliers shop and they will give you a replacement for it.

Car power supply for Garmin nuvi 755t does not work. Not sure if its the Wire, mount Adapter or other.


I assume you have checked the cigarette lighter to be sure it's working.
The most likely problem is the fuse in the power cord/charger. The plug which goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring at the end of it. Unscrew the ring, taking care not to lose any small parts, and it comes apart. Replace the fuse and it should be ok.

Nuvi will not charge when plugged into car charger but will charge when plugged into house charger


  1. Check that the cigarette lighter socket is working. If not it may be a fuse blown in the fuse-board.
  2. In the charger plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter there is a fuse which may be blown. At the tip of the plug you'll see a ring. On most chargers it's silver but some are black. Unscrew the ring and the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the small metal tip when you open it. Replace the fuse. If there's power going to the charger and this fuse is replaced your problem should be solved.

Garmin street pilot 330 charging problem


Linda,

You need to check the fuse for both the car's cigar lighter AND the one in the GPS power plug (that goes into the cigar lighter outlet). Both must be good for the GPS to charge and power up.

I don't know if your friends cord worked in you car - or hers - so you're going to have to find out if it is the cord fuse or the car fuse. Since her cord worked on your GPS, start by using HER CORD connected to YOUR GPS in both cars. If it works in her car, but not in yours, check & replace your car's cigar lighter fuse. If or when it works in both cars, disconnect her cable and connect your cable to your GPS again. Connect into your cigar lighter. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't work, disassemble the plug at the end of the GPS cord (cigar lighter end) and check and replace the fuse if blown. You should be good to go at this point.

Please rate this reply if found to be helpful - good luck!

Street pilot 330 will not turn on when plugged into car power supply. Poosible battery charge needed?


Does the car charger cord have a fuse in it at the point where it plugs
into the lighter port, a lot of car chargers have a fuse, I can't tell
if your end, the part that goes inside the lighter port has a cap that you unscrew to replace the fuse, and garmin does not show it.

If the car is running, and it does not work, there is something wrong with the car adapter, or the unit at the plug, the battery should not have anything to do with it.

If the battery starts the car the battery is fine.

Has been working fine..now will not turn on.


It sounds like a dead battery?
When it is plugged into the car, you should see a charging symbol, or it will say charging if the screen is off.
Are you sure it is getting power from the car? Check the fuse for the lighter socket, also the power cord has a fuse in the end that goes into the cigarette lighter socket, if you twist the end of the adapter it should open and expose a fuse.
Check these fuses to be sure.

Hope this helps.

Does the cigarette lighter work in the car when you press it in? Does it get hot? If not has the fuse blown for the cigarette lighter?

If that is supplying power you may have a fault in the cigarette lighter to Tom Tom lead. Carefully check the fuse (one of the six bumps) in the plug and make sure it is still intact (use a meter).

If the fuse is OK then the lead itself may be faulty and probably needs to be replaced.
