No Power...Keep Blowing Fuses

I just received my new Sportster 4 and when I hooked up the unit with the lighter power adapter I keep blowing fuses. I have tried both of my cars and it did the same for both. My old sirius receiver was working just fine minutes before I tried to switch them out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Keep blowing fuses on gps 21 pro


Might want to list it in another area. If its blowing fuses you know you have something wrong--if it (I presume it does) has an external unit for power the problem is there. Also be aware not all fuses are the same--a generic fuse like radio shack etc may even if correct amperage pop for no reason.

Either a incorrect fuse (not talking about wrong amperage) or a short in the unit--one or the other.

Whistler 1730 keeps blowing fuses. no other problems with cigarette lighter plug


Is the lighter socket fuse blowing or the fuse in the unit's power cord? Have you tried another power cord from a Friends radar detector? If it doesn't blow that power cord's fuse, then your power cord is bad. If it does blow the fuse in the other power cord, there could be something wrong with the unit.

I have a TRC 458 cb.... it keeps blowing fuses


It may have been reversed polarity on turn on. This can short out the polarity diode and then cause fuses to blow. This is a protection circuit so do not keep trying new fuses as the reverse surge can go into the radio deeper and damage it beyond repair.

If there is no power to the sockets, changing the bulb wont correct the problem. Check all fuses. Check for current to the tailight. Check for ground to the tailight. Repair as nesessary.
Check cigarette lighter filament. It may be faulty. Check inside cigarette lighter socket. It may have a foreign material in it causing the short.

Fuses keep blowing


This particular product has a lot of comments posted on it and I've answered a few of them now so I'm beginning to think you may want to look into weather or not the manufacturer has received any complaints or this is just a freak occurrence. Keep in mind not all commments are the same so this may just be nothing. Either way I can tell you this much, if fuses keep blowing quickly, over and over again-You have a direct short somewhere and will most likely be in need of professional assistance of some sort with the possiblilty of having to replace it. I'm sorry it's not an easier fix but it may not be too expensive.

Sirius Sportster car kit - blown fuses


Try the other adapter and see if it works without blowing the fuse. If that fuse blows also, something is wrong with the radio.
