My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom

I drive a 1999 Mercury Sable. The cigarette lighter works fine if you're trying to light a cigarette, but will not work at all when charging my TomTom. The GPS charges fine in other cars. What could be the issue?

The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home


The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

I have 1999 mercury sable. My power locks, windows and shifting gear stop working after my cigarette lighter melting wires and burning out


By stating what you have found in the cigarette lighter is like you wanted to put fire on your car. BE VERY CAREFUL in future, you cause in your ignorance a strong shortage that's why you had melted and smelly wires. You need a good electrician to rewire and check all the relays and fuses which surely are blown due to this shortage.

2000 Mercury Sable Cruise Control stopped working


Check the fuse panel. Look for a fuse that says cruise on it. If you cant find a fuse for that check your cigarette lighter fuse. somtimes they are conected. Its going to be something simple like that.

Cigarette lighter isn't working


the socket the lighter goes into has a built in fuse. When they go out the socket needs to be replaced. Of course the element in the lighter maybe out instead. You need to check continuity on both parts

Cigarette lighter


First check the fuse... then try using a test light to check for power in the socket. If there is power replace the lighter coil... if not look for a loose wire behind the socket... Hope this helps...;-)

Cigarette Lighter Coming on but power not strong enough to charge anything


the two problems that you posted could be connected somehow by the alternator not charging because of the belt issue. so if you have a low battery, the cigarette lighter would have a low voltage also.

then on the ipod issue, the memory of the radio could have been lost due to removal of battery cables or the battery really went down on its voltage. just re-configure your radio to accept the ipod music.

tnx 4 using fixya,
