I see that you have your adapter and as far as I can tell with this type of problem you may have look at sending it back just because I think your wiring is faulty on the inside or your base station where your radio would sit...there may not be no contact on your station prongs that a connect to the radio. The docking staion connectors may be faulty and need to be replaced. I would beleive this to be relevent to the problem you just described.

Suzuki vitara 2006 cigarette lighter is not working


When you say cigarette lighter does not work, do you mean the insert part, which heats up to light a cigarette, or do you mean the socket? You can test the socket by plugging in a cell phone charger or similar device to see if there is any electricity. If not, then it would be the fuse. To find the fuse, check the net for a manual, stop by the dealer/parts department and ask where it is, or ask at repair shops in gas stations.

Cigarette lighter ans accessour power point not working... it's not the fuse


I had a similar problem I thought it wasn't the fuse because I had only checked one but there are two cigarette fuses. Also you can replace the whole cigarette lighter if it is getting power to it. If it isn't there might be a bad wire leading to it. Get a test light to see if it's getting power through the fuses hole.

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.

My garmin nuvi 650 na keeps depleting its battery even though I just fully charge it on the computer. It also does not charge when I plug it in the cigarette lighter in the car. The screen turns dark...


well if you have the factory car charger. There is a fuse inside of it. This is indicated in the manual. But it could also be the cigarette lighter fuse in the car is blown. I would make sure the cigarette outlet has power. If the cigarette lighter has power and you have the factory power cable that has a fuse try this. f the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
let me know how this works by following up with a comment and i can instruct you on where to go from here. Thanks.

Fuse is located under the spare tire well and is in the fuse panel and is an 20 amp fuse that is slightly misaligned on the middle row of the box. This will fix cigarette lighter in ash tray in lower middle cluster of radio and a/c.

My fuse blows everytime i plug in my sirius radio to cigarette lighter...why?


is that the only device that is blowing a fuse? if it is the only thing blowing your fuse you may need to replace the charger. check the fuse to make sure it is the correct size ( usually 10 amp). check the power adapter to make sure there are no loose connections or anything in the plug that doesn't belong there. unplug the radio from the adapter and plug the adapter in without the radio see if the fuse blows . if it blows replace the adapter. if it doesn't blow the fuse check the adapter to make sure it is the right one make sure the polarity is correct

Black and decker air station will not turn on


  1. Take off the bottom(6 screws philips2_bing.gif)look for a small glass fuse Marked F1 that is soldered in place.
  2. Cut this fuse out(cut as close to the fuse as possible)
  3. Replace fuse(1.25amp 250Volt) You can find on e-bay search by 1.25 amp) there is a fuse with the wire already attached on it....solder new fuse in place.
  4. If you dont want to wait to order the fust just solder a wire into the fuse area(you will have no surge protection but it may worth the risk because the frequncy this fuse keeps blowing.
Side Note: It may look like the fuse is O.K. but trust me its blown.
There are 2 compessor bellows keep in mind they don't both run at the same time One is for AC the other for DC.
