Hi,
No, it will pull way too much power for that...thay pull about 20 amps @120V which would be 200 amps at 12v...get the picture??
Many RV's have a 120v AC generator that they run to power these...

I want to know if my Duracell 130 Watt AC/DC Power Adapter can be used to plug in a coffee maker into my cigarette lighter? I also misplaced the User Manual to this product. Can it be replaced. I believe...


It's not a good idea to run anything that needs a lot of wattage through a power converter using a 12v cigarette lighter plug. Coffee makers work by using a resistant heater element and it might work, but you could damage the coffee maker or the adapter by doing so.

Cigrate lighter,radio and foof light does not get on even fuses ar good for toyota corolla 2001


Check these two fuses. Fuse number 31 in fuse box location 4, if cigarette lighter, radio and clock. Else fuse number 5 in fuse box location 2, if only radio and clock and not cigarette lighter.

There's a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood. Have a friend touch the top while you turn the key. If he doesn't feel a slight "tap" then it's most likely blown. Replace. Cheap.

Which fuse controls the cigarette lighter and radio, mine are not working


In the integrated power module, find 20A fuse 5. Replacing it should get both the cigar lighter and radio operating again

My cigarette lighter and my radio stop working suddenly when I pull my 120v converter (that fell to pieces) out of my lighter, what happened?


These two devices both use the same fuse. Look under the steering wheel to the left and you'll find a fuse box. Pop the top off of the box and look at it. It has a diagram on it to tell you which one runs the radio/lighter. It's a 20Amp fuse. Pull it out and examine it, it should be burned/broken in the middle, you can see it through the clear yellow plastic. Replace the fuse and your devices should work again.

I just got my first cb and am trying to install it. I have connected the red wire in the fuse box( to the radio) and grounded the black wire. turned the car on and I cannot get any power to the CB, but the...


Take a deep breath and start over! The best way to power this little radio is probably through the cigarette lighter or 12vdc accessory jack. It is simple and straight forward and no fuse box or negative ground wires to worry about. Go the Radio Shack, purchase an adaptor (cig lighter type) and hook it up to your radio wiring being careful to watch polarity. You may have to have your ignition on to run the radio, but that is much safer that maybe blowing up the unit.

Unless you are running a larger more powerful unit or an amp, there is no added benefit to hooking the radio into the fuse box.

The I/P fuse box has six fuses off by themselves.One side has an open slot. The other has two fuses side by side. The 20 amp fuse closest to the box center ,of this pair, is the cigarette fuse.

Digital clock and cigarette lighter


There are three (3) fuses involved here. The one that is most likely the culprit is the 15A one in the fuse box under the hood, near the battery. Check the underhood fuse box, replace any blown fuses.

The other two fuses (also 15A) are in the interior fuse box, probably left side kick panel.
