    Cosmiccene: First apologies for not replying sooner. I was off the circuit for too many months. I appreciate your feedback and others have also suggested this route. My problem is very very limited space in the cockpit of this small sports plane, so it is something I am still thinking about. I suspect in the end yours will be my only real option though. Good advice and I thank you very much.

John, if you need to do that you need to get a voltage converter with a wide input range like (10 to 16volts) and an output voltage of 7.5volts which the camcorder requires.

You can even make one if your are an electronics buff. Let me know if you need any help on that.

Used cigarette lighter to inflate tire, left inflater on for a long time now cigarette lighter doesn't work and car doesn't always start


It sounds like you might have drained your battery! When the car is running does the Cigarette lighter produce power? It should be working while the car is running. That would also explain why the car starts sporadically. Try leaving the car on for 40 minutes. That might charge the battery enough.

I have a Garmin nuvi 255w GPS. Recently, the cigarette lighter adapter cord began to fray, causing the unit to flip back and forth between running off the battery and drawing power from the cigarette...


You must buy the Special Traffic cord to receive the traffic.....it will have 2 lights to it to let you know that it is working..... just a regular cigarette lighter adapter plug will Not work, you need the Traffic Receiver cord.

You can get them on the Garmin site www.garmin.com

Hi,i'm having trouble with the cig lighter on my car, it keeps blowing fuses. can i wire it directly to the battery with an inline fuse? How would i do this?


you could do this by running 2 wires directly from the battery to the back of the cig lighter and by fusing the positive.if it is only when using the cig lighter and not when charging a phone ect.it could be element on the cig lighter shorting

Cigarette lighter doesn't work.  Tried replacing fuse, but fuse is ok.  How do you remove the front centre dashbaord panel to gain access to cigarette lighter wiring on a 2005 Jeep cherokee ?


before u pull panel, check for 12vdc with voltmeter inside lighter socket. If u have it, then clean contacts and/or replace lighter(not socket, wiring is fine) May save a lot of work. If you don't have voltage are you 100% sure you have right fuse and not the one below, above, or next to it? I still make mistakes with numbered fuses, which number is for which fuse. To make sure I start counting at 1.

Powering a car amplifier


Bad idea. The wiring leading up to your cigarette lighter is usually a cheap 16 gauge wire. The amplifier will not be able to draw enough amperage through that power source. You could however, use the positive on your cigarette lighter as your remote for the amp. This would be helpful if your cigarette lighter turns off and on with the car.

If the unit works on battery but not the AC adapter or cigarette lighter adapter, obviously the problem is in the adapter.

1. Have you verified that you have +12VDC at your accessory jack?

2. Have you checked the fuse in the cigarette adapter?

What are you powering it with when not on the battery?

Canon Elura 100 Power Dead


Just an update.
I sent it back to the factory - and they fixed the power unit.
However, they told me that now my Memory card and memory card operations will not work.
They did not charge me for it - they took it under warranty.
Everything else seems to be working.
