I would just run two new wires from battery , and fit an after market cigarette lighter socket to you car . or just run the wires to the existing charging socket , and remove the factory ones . then you could use a heavier gauge wire and fuse . this is just an idea .

It's cold outside and my 2013 Hyundai sonata won't start


Its most likely a worn down battery. They get even weaker when its very cold outside. I'd get a jump or connect a charger to it.

What fuse in the box control the cigarette lighter sonata 2012


According to your owners manual on page 7-54 the labels for your fuses are on the fuse panel cover itself. The cigarette lighters are now typically referred to as "power Outlet". Your manual indicates you might have two of them. Both are 15A fuses. But unfortunately the manual doesn't say which slot it's in. That info should be on the fuse panel cover underneath driver side dash.

My 2006 VW Beetle continuously blows the Accessory fuse utilized for the power port for the cigarette lighter and underneath the center console. The proper fuse was replaced. Only my phone plugged in when...


Hi Troy,

Without seeing the ports of the car and the plug of your charger, it would be difficult to diagnose with any certainty. I do have a suggestion however. Your note suggests that other devices do not cause the fuse to blow when they are used - it is only the charger for the phone. Since the charger works in other cars, it is probably not an overload condition due to a defective charger, but more likely a mismatched set of contacts between the plug and power port in your car when the two are mated. Some cars have slightly different sized power ports that can be either too tight or too loose for some plugs. Too tight ports could be causing parts internal to the charger's plug or car's power port to short together and blow the fuse.

We can get around this be using a different plug. The easiest way is to find a cord set that will plug into your car's power port and provides a simple extension for 1, 2 or 3 outlets. These can be found in auto parts stores and the automotive departments of stores like K-Mart, Sears, etc. Some examples look like these:

Insert the plug into the power port - and check that the fuse does not blow by checking the fuse - not by plugging something into the the outlet on the cord. If the fuse remains good, then it is safe to assume that the problem with your charger and the car's power port has been eliminated, and the car's power is available at each of the outlets of the new cord.

Try plugging the charger into the outlet of the new cord. If all is well, the charger should be working as expected. What we have done is removed the charger / car power port combination from the equation, by providing a different combination to do the same thing - but without the same physical connection that causes the fuse to blow.

You could achieve the same results by changing the charger plug under the right conditions - but many chargers now a days have circuitry inside them that change the car's 12 volts to something different. If you can find the voltage out of the charger and are able to match it with another - it must be the same voltage, polarity, current and phone power connector of course - it should work, too. You must be absolutely sure of the power requirements and your rewiring - if not, stick with the addition of a cord described above.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Are you touching the glass part of the bulb with your fingers? The oil in your skin will blow them right away. The lighters are common to blow the fuse with a bad phone charger cord. Can't help with the air bag. Good Luck!
