Sounds like either you have a break in the wire when it moves you lose your connection. If it was a fuse it would be blown and you wouldn't get any power. Wriggle the wire or look for a lump in the cord, indicates a break. You can get another adapter almost anywhere, auto parts, my neighbor hood deli had them hanging up.

Thanks for letting me assist with your problem. Does your vehicle have another lighter or utility plug? If it does, try and plug your One into a different one. If you only have one, try it in a friends vehicle and see if the problem continues. If it stops cycling on and off, then it's the lighter outlet in your vehicle. If it doesn't then it could be the plug on the vehicle adapter. If my help has been satisfactory, I'd appreciate a rating. Thanks for using FixYa.

How do you replace a fuse to the cigarette lighter in a 2004 Highlander. I need it to plug in my ipod adapter. Where is the fuse box?


The Highlander does have two fuse boxes one in the engine compartment and the other In the Cab. The Second fuse box is where you will find the Fuse to the lighter.
There is a small Door on the left side that Pulls open on the driver sided about knee level. If you Use a flash Light you can see the fuse box behind this pocket door. Open the Door and Pull the pocket door up it should come off easily and you will haves access to the fuses behind it.
replace the 15 amp fuse #23 or the 15 amp fuse on the left sided 2nd down Be sure the check the other 15amp fuse which is 2 below that. That is for the Other cigarette type plug on the passenger side.

I just got my first cb and am trying to install it. I have connected the red wire in the fuse box( to the radio) and grounded the black wire. turned the car on and I cannot get any power to the CB, but the...


Take a deep breath and start over! The best way to power this little radio is probably through the cigarette lighter or 12vdc accessory jack. It is simple and straight forward and no fuse box or negative ground wires to worry about. Go the Radio Shack, purchase an adaptor (cig lighter type) and hook it up to your radio wiring being careful to watch polarity. You may have to have your ignition on to run the radio, but that is much safer that maybe blowing up the unit.

Unless you are running a larger more powerful unit or an amp, there is no added benefit to hooking the radio into the fuse box.

Does the CP-17L Icom adaptor have a voltage regulator or is simply a wire with 2 plugs and a fuse? In other words, can it be replaced by any wire with a cigarette lighter plug in one end?


Hi, the best way to determine if this plug simply just a plug, is to take it apart. By then, you can replace the fuse and not have to buy another adapter. Hope this helps.

My garmin nuvi 650 na keeps depleting its battery even though I just fully charge it on the computer. It also does not charge when I plug it in the cigarette lighter in the car. The screen turns dark...


well if you have the factory car charger. There is a fuse inside of it. This is indicated in the manual. But it could also be the cigarette lighter fuse in the car is blown. I would make sure the cigarette outlet has power. If the cigarette lighter has power and you have the factory power cable that has a fuse try this. f the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
let me know how this works by following up with a comment and i can instruct you on where to go from here. Thanks.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab


Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

Cigarette lighter adapter stopped working


I am not specifically familiar with the wiring on your vehicle, but i would say there is still a blown fuse, or the wiring going to your power-port/lighter has shorted.

Lighter plug


First if you still have the old "lighter plug" unscrew the ribbed end cap of the cigarette lighter adapter and check to see what size the fuse is. If you don’t have it anymore it originally took a 1amp fuse. Do Not use anything bigger then a 1amp fuse....You can pick them up at your local electronics store like RadioShack. In fact they will have a cigarette lighter adapter for you just remember to take in your Cobra ESD 6000 Radar Detector...I hope this helps...Let me know... cbinny1
