Sounds like you shorted out the cig lighter which can also power other circuits. Have you checked the cig lighter fuse ?

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

Cigarette lighter plug not working


hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out.  No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again.  worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.

Screen wont turn on after 3-4days


when starting the vehicle, the unit gets a surge. disconnect before starting the car. If it has a cig lighter power adapter, it was not meant to stay plugged in 24-7

Cigerette lighter and secondary power source is not working


the fuse box is located under the driver side dash and the cig lighter fuse is in position 16 and the fuse amp rating is 20 it will be yellow in color. if you cant find # 16 position then pull all yellow fuses one by one to check.
