If you are pressing the on switch and it is not switching on then try plugging this in someone else's care and see if it works. If it doesn't then there is an issue with the unit or the charging cord. Try a different cord and if that doesn't fix it then it is the unit. Good luck.

The cigarette lighter on my 1995 Toyota Corolla does not work. The radio works fine. The problem started after I used an air compressor to inflate my tires. The air compressor attaches to the cigar


On the back side of the lighter there is a fusable link between the incoming power wire and the metal tab that connects power to the lighter. This is a very small wire, bent 90 degrees, between two tabs that are mounted on the same small screw. It looks like the incoming power tab and the power to the lighter would be connected, but they are insulated from each other on the screw. If the fusable link is blown, you will have power at the power connector on the back of the lighter, but no power to the center terminal inside the lighter.

Had cell phone and computer plugged into dual cigarette lighter unit and cigarette lighter overheated and quit working - we checked the fuse - it seems fine.Just want the cigarette lighter socket to work...


More than likely overheated the wiring going to the lighter as well and burned it off. If you pull the lighter socket out you should see if it did. Simply solder it back on and be careful not to overload it again.

How do i change 12v power / cigarette lighter! in a Peugoet 206


The cigarette lighter is connected to a harness that's being the unit. You need to most likely remove the panel that the cigarette lighter is attached to in order to remove the lighter unit out. Once the unit is out, disconnect the wiring harness to exchange it. I don't know how exactly your lighter will come out

Cigarette lighter does not work


first check the fuse, next, get a light tester and see if you getting power to the lighter unit. two wires to your cigarette lighter one black for - and red for +, if you getting power, your line is good that mean your cigarette lighter unit does does not have a good contact to what ever is plugging in. replace the unit; if no power to the unit, test the cigarette fuse and see if the wire is hot. if not you have a short to the fuse. hope that help some..good luck

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?
