Question about Delphi Roady2 SA10085 XM Radio Receiver with Car Kit

1 Answer

No power in car

My unit has worked for more than a year in my car. Now it gets no power from the lighter socket. I have tried it with the AC adaptor in my home and it works fine. The lighter socket works with the lighter and with my cell phone charger. The Delphi Vehicle Power Supply looks OK. If there is a fuse, I can't find it. Do I need a new Delphi Vehicle Power Supply?

Try a tester on the car lighter power cord( usually auto parts stores countermen will do it) to make sure the cord isnt shorted. It sounds like that might be the problem. Good Luck. I found that if you constantly move the unit from car to home the jacks start coming apart internally. the solder joints break and the connection gets spotty. I am on my second Roady 2 because of this.You can get a T6 tork driver and take them apart if you feel up to it or buy another one on ebay or craigslist of they have one. Good Luck

How do I fix or repair the cigar lighter in a ford ranger year 2000?


If you are not getting any voltage at the socket, try finding a faulty fuse.
If you have voltage getting to the wire harness leading to the lighter socket- but it is not getting past the fusible link connection inside the socket, replace the unit.
By design, a fusible link is supposed to melt- (breaking the circuit) when there is high-current draw.
You can test for power either by using a voltmeter or test light and the fusible link with a continuity tester or Ohm meter with tone

2000 year honda civic cigarette lighter not working


check the power in the lighter socket or the charger which is a small transformer has not failed . Try it in another car . If it works there then I would suspect a fuse for the lighter if there is no power there.. Make sure that the adaptor plug is tight as the 2 bars on the side are the earth for the adaptor and if not tight then there may be no earth . Use a flat bladed screw driver and bend the bars out a bit to increase tension in the socket.

Dead stereo...


I will bet that you have a short circuit at the cigar lighter/power socket. I have observed this many times. Cell charger adaptors are not the "exact fit" for the Toyota lighter sockets. The power prong sometimes gets bent, from the adaptor, and shorts out to the outer case of the socket. Unplug the lighter plug & try another fuse.
I am reasonably confident that tis is your issue. Hope this helps you out.

Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi. Any thoughts? I have another Nuvi 350 that does charge with this ones car adaptor.


Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).

Cigarette lighter sockets no power


Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

Car power adapter for portron pdv768


I went to Wal-Mart and purchased a Phillips Power Inverter that provides AC power from any car outlet. Just plug the AC power plug into it and then plug into the lighter plug socket. It solved my problem....It costs $19.99. Hope this helps!

Lap top problem


Hi

If the AC power light is blinking, try the following steps:

1 Cut off power to the computer by disconnecting the AC adaptor and removing the battery. The error condition will be interrupted, and the AC power light will stop flashing.

2 Put the battery back into the computer. Do not connect the AC adaptor. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the AC adaptor may be
defective and will need to be replaced. If the AC power light starts flashing, remove the battery, and continue with the steps below.

3 Connect the AC adaptor to the computer. Leave the battery out of the computer. Try turning the computer on again. If the computer starts normally, the battery may need charging, may be depleted, or may be defective. Turn the computer on, insert the battery, and then leave the computer running for several hours, which will deliver a slow, steady “trickle-charge” to the battery. Once the battery has been trickle-charged, it may begin working correctly again. If the trickle-charging does not prove effective, consider replacing the battery with a new one.

4 Connect the AC adaptor to a different power outlet, preferably in a different room. If the computer starts normally, there may be a problem with the AC outlet itself, or the voltage level available from it.

5 Verify that the AC adaptor is the correct unit for your computer model. The computer may not be able to start from an AC adaptor that is rated for less current (amperage) than the computer requires, even if the rated voltage is correct, and the plug fits correctly in the DC-IN socket. The labels on the bottom of the computer and the AC adaptor show the specifications for voltage ("V") and current ("A") for each device. The voltage level must match exactly. The amperage rating of the AC adaptor must be equal to or greater than that required by the computer

Noise with casette adaptor


Well Jill the problem you are having is called inducted noise. The lighter power adapter cord is inducting electrical current to the cord used by the cassette adapter thus creating the the noise you've been hearing. Do your best to separate the two cables as much as possible. I realize that your unit may have both cords coming out of th same side, and that's fine. the longer the run of wire, the easier it is to have induction issues. If the cords do come out on the same side, run one up and the other down away from the other cord. Do not coil the lighter adapter or cord either, it increases the chance of being able to induct noise. If your unit is to close to the lighter assembly you may need to move the unit to another location in the vehicle itself to help combat the noise issue. Other options include to shield the cassette adapter wire, i use aluminum tape for heating/ac ducts. The only other option i can see is purchasing a FM modulator which will transmit the units sound wireless-ly through an FM radio channel. You will want to check and see...i do believe most XM radios have a FM modulator built in. Hope this helps, and good luck.
