You gave an answer on how to connect this with the red/blue areas of the plug. We had the same cord but have lost it. It had one end that went into the lighter (cizarette) and the othe end was flat with red/blue. WHERE CAN I FIND ANOTHER CORD?
Is this discontinued? If you have a source please tell me.
You can google "coleman 5640" and quite a few websites will come up that offer repair parts and the cord is one of them. There are only three parts that you can still buy for that model cooler. The cord, the motor, and the removable tray. Hope this helps.

There are any number of variations on the basic plug. Some fit; some do not. You have to decide whether to replace the plug on your Koolatron cooler or the cigar lighter socket in your Tundra. It is possible to purchase aftermarket plug and socket combinations that will resolve both issues.
Bear in mind that these coolers can also warm, depending on the orientation of the power cord connection. One end of the power cord has an arrow, the other end has a blue dot on one side and a red dot on the other. For cooling, connect power cord ends so that the arrow is on the same side as the blue dot. If the arrow is on the same site as the red dot, the cooler becomes a warming device, venting cold air outside the cooler and into the car. Could that be the problem?
Between phone calls to danby and my neighbor, we fixed this problem. My E4 was on the left (lower chamber). If you have one on the right it is the upper chamber. The E4 is a defrost sensor that can be ordered from Danby's distributor (call Danby for the one in your area). The part and shipping were around $30.
If your E4 is on the left...
- remove the top shelves
- open the cover inside the cooler above the digital read outs (the top unscrews)
- inside is were the repacement sensor plugs in
- replace the one with the long cord
- run the sensor down the back to the lower chamber
- replace all covers and parts
If the E4 is on the right...
- remove the top shelves
- look on the right hand wall for a black plastic grate, the sensor is under this grate
- replace the sensor (simple plug and play)
- replace the racks.
Please pass this on, it was a ***** to deal with Danby and I nearly trashed the cooler out of sheer frustration.
I bought one but it was missing the cord, so I hooked it to the
benchtop supply. I found out if you place positive to the red
terminal/grey wires under the outside cover and negative to the
blue/black wires it cools. With a DPDT switch and a couple of LEDs you could wire it so you dont need that special coleman cord, any lighter cord will work provided it can handle about 6 amps, I recommend 12 to 14 gauge wire and a 6 amp fuse.
