Probably and inline fuse if the phone holder was fitted after sales. If the car already had a holder (Factory fitted) the fuse will be in the fuse box. Normally in front of the Drivers position under the dash or under the bonnet. If its an inline fuse, you may have to remove any under dash covers and trace the "live" wire from the phone cradle back to its power supply. The fuse is usually in a cylindrical type holder that clips apart or 1 end unscrews.

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 will not take a charge

Are you using the car charger adapter plug? If so the plug may have a blown fuse... I would unscrwew the silver end of plug and check fuse ...its spring loaded so be careful...

If the fuse is good try plugging the unit into your computer with the usb connector to see if it charges .... its a slow charge so may take a few hours to fully charge

It fuse is good and unit takes a usb charge the car plug needs replacing

Where is the fuse for cigarette lighter for BMW 2000 5 D series

The lighters frequently burn out after a couple of years but you may still have power to the socket. Plug the charger in and check that the charge indicator light comes on. If it does your fine. If not you'll need to remove the socket and check the wires attached to it.

Cigarette Lighter does not give out power when plugging in GPS, Cell Charger, iPod Charger, etc. How do I fix?

chances are that it is just a blown fuse, which is very common, it is fuse #46 and is a 15amp fuse, location of fuse panel is under drivers side, most garages will do for no charge, but if you would like to try yourself, ownersmanual will show you fuse layout and look for #46, pull and see if it is blown 44e3364.gif

When on charge only lasts a few seconds and then cuts out

Your charging fuse has blown. If you have a warranty i'd suggest using it to get it repaired, if not you can either take it to a local repair shop or try replacing it yourself.

You need to have fairly good soldering skills as the fuse you will be replacing is tiny (1.6mm x 0.8mm). You can buy the fuse you need from ebay (do a search for ds lite fuse). Taky your ds lite apart and locate the "f1" fuse (here is a link to the pic of the fuse location: ). Remove the blown fuse by de soldering it and replace it with the new fuse and solder it into place, once this is done you can put your ds back together and test if the charger now works... if it does but the ds will not switch on you will have to also replace f2 (also shown on the picture).

If you want a more detailed explaination for the replacement of the fuses do a google search for "ds lite fuse replacement2 and you should get plenty of guides show up.

Some people say just to bridge this fuse if its blown but i'm strongly against this, the fuse is there for a reason and if you bypass it more serious damage can occur and that will be far more costly and dangerous.

Hope this helps and like to say I accept no responsibility for any damage that may occur whilst using my advice.

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?

You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.
