This has happened to me, I had the StreePilot C490, the internal battery got overheated from keeping it plugged in. If you get a new Battery for it, it will be all set.

If this helps at all, please rate this a FixYa. - Evolution

Cigarette lighter socket came out, no charging


You probably pulled the wiring plug off the back of the socket. Or the fuse went when the socket came out.

Cigarette lighter keeps blowing fuse


when the lighter is not pushed in does the fuse still blow? If not get a new plug in bit. Try some other plug in unit (GPS--dash cam--tyre compressor) or anything that uses a plug for the cigarette lighter and see it the fuse still blows.

No light on vehicle power cable


If this is a cigarette lighter plug, the fuse may be blown. Unscrew the top where it plugs into the cigarette lighter and check the fuse. But, more than likely the fuse in your car for the cigarette lighter is blown. Check the car fuse first.

Hello. I have a problem that no one has seemed to be able to help me with. All i get is a dumbfounded look or scratch on the head. I have a Garmin Nuvi 780 GPS for the car. I do not have a cigarette...


Hi JoAnn, What you really need is a cigarette lighter socket in your car and this doesn't have to be a big problem. In most car accessory shops you can get cigarette lighter socket splitters, like the one at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-Cigarette-Lighter-Splitter-Adaptor/dp/B003TNYK7Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1301407423&sr=8-1

Now I know these are supposed to plug into your cigarette lighter socket but you can remove the plug from the end of it and get wired directly to the fuse board of your car. The wire that goes to the centre tip of the plug connects to the positive/fuse of the fuse board and the wire that's connected to the outer part of the plug connects directly to an unpainted metal part of the car. You can do this by loosening a bolt, wrapping the wire around it and tightening it again. The block with the sockets on it can be either glued with double sided tape to a convenient part of your car interior or left loose if you prefer.

If you're not happy wiring it directly yourself it should not cost a lot to get done in a garage. If I was in your position that's what I'd do.

My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom


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.

GPS plug do not fit in car cigarette lighter


Buy a adapter for your cigarette lighter socket that has multiple sockets with one that will fit the Garmin adapter.
I've never heard of a problem you are having??
Are you using a Garmin plug?
If not get one.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

NO OUTLET TO PLUG INTO CAR


Hi,

Most GPS would have a cigarette lighter adapter to charge the unit while in the car. If you vehicle has onle 1, then it would be needed to pullout the cigarette lighter and use that for the charger. If your unit does not have a cigarette lighter adapter/charger, then pls post back the brand/model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Will not turn on


do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)
