The fuse in the power cord should be no higher than 2 amps to protect your electrical system, so double check that the power cord that you purchased has a fuse in it and its no more than 2 amps. The 1743 model came with a 1 year warranty. If the unit is under 1 year old and you have a dated store receipt, then see www.whistlergroup.com can click on "contact Us. then click on"shipping information".

Need power cord


That model was made by the Whistler Corporation that went out of business back in 1999. You might have to look at other products to match the style of jack. The cord should be able to handle 20 amps.

Customer has lost his power supply cord. where can he purchase another cord. power cord is three prongs.


  • Hi, I can help.

  • For the Radio Shack TRC-447 this is just a standard 3 PIN DC cord. Many CB's use the same cord and they are interchangeable. Some Cobra, Uniden, Radio Shack use the same cord. Texxcomm is a great place to get parts from.


  • If you have any coimmments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The tip is missing on my power cord Whistler XCS 800..it also has rechargeable batteries but seems like it won't work without power cord. So is the cord easy to replace? Does that mean the detector is...


You can buy cigarette lighter power supplies at radio shack, they sell a wide variety of voltages and tips to fit almost any device (radar detector) you may have.
The 4 things you need to know (which you may be able to find off of the broken power cord
  • voltage, your car is ~12VDC (volts DC) but your device may need something lower
  • amperage, your device has a certain power draw, as long as your new plug has the same or higher you are good (ie: your device may say 500mA, you can use a 1A power plug (1A = 1000mA)
  • tip size, these vary from device to device, best thing is to bring it into Radio Shack with you and size it up there
  • polarity, what is positive and what is negative (on the tip), this may also be found on the old power plug or manual, or sometimes on the device itself)
I hope this helps,
Magoo
