Hi, i have a Lowrance Elite 5 and it won't turn on. Its about 20 months old, there is power to it and the fuse is fine, the night before it copped some rain and have since dryer it out but still nothing,,...

Probably still wet on internal electronics.
I would disconnect it's power input. Open it up & check for moisture. Blow out with gentle dry air or If still damp, place a small cotton bag full of rice inside and let that suck all the moisture out for a few hours.

I plugged into a 24volt vehicle,It blew fuse which i replaced,Now it wont even turn on when plugged in.

Bummer, unfortunately, even though the fuse is designed to protect the unit it is still possible to damage the unit before the fuse blows. Fuse blow based on (amps x volts). I am not an electrical engineer but amps x volts = watts. This is ohms law. If the device is designed to run on 12 Volts and you plugged it into 24 something fried.
Now is a good time to take out the tools and see how it works. It may be very obvious, with a magnify glass to see at least one burn part. The bad news is the new boards use such small components that even if you can identify the burned out part, you may not be able to replace the part.
The good news is there is a possibility that you can replace the bread board, however there will be no warrantee.

Do i need a amp to connect equalizer to car stereo

hello yes but you will get the same audio output as you would without using an amp iff you are using high watt speakers it would be best to give them a bit of power you may connect the amp in line with the equalizer hence giving them the boost make sure you set the sound levels correctly on your stereo first like ballance both speakers then you can ajust the equalizer with your amp remember 2 /500watt speakers in line will accur a 500 to 1000 watt amp nothing more or you will blow your sound system

265W car charger blew a fuse (while using it on my Harley Sportster!) Some say replace it with 1A some say 3A. The # is LF.T1AH250VP, and by the way, what's up with 250V !!!!!

I would ignore the 250V. The concern is the current. I would not use a fuse higher than the one shipped with the unit. According to the PN you provided it is a 1A (amp) fast blow glass fuse.

Before replacing check the power line to make sure there is no short in it. Also if the cigarette lighter end gets wet it could blow.

3 amp fuse in sat nav power lead keeps blowing

possibly a spike through the ciggarette lighter plug, try putting slightly larger fuse in ( 4 or 5 amp )

temporarily and see if it blows the slightlty larger fuse. if it does it's more likely to be something wrong with the ciggarette lighter socket if it doesn't blow the fuse it's more likely to be the power supply. Ebay for another one perhaps ??

Fuse blue in the car adapter and at the same time garmin 300 nuvi went dead and wont start up with either car power or battery power.

Blue fuses are usually 5 amps.
Red ones, 10.
Yellow, 20.

The fuse inside a cigarette adapter is usually a 1A, buss fuse - available from Radio Shack or "The Source By Circuit City".

If your blue fuse blew, then visit your nearest department store, and purchase a new fuse. Buy a box of 5 or so just in case.
