Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

FM Traffic Cable for Nuvi 660

I accidentally yanked on the cable when the connector was still in the
cigarette lighter socket. The connector came apart and I tried assembling
the parts back together, but to no avail. The unit is inoperative.
Are there any simple instructions on how to repair this?
Thanks.

I just replaced the fuse and it works fine, thus saving a couple of
C-notes. Who's the idiot?

How to replace a cigarette lighter socket


Easiest thing on a car. The new cigarette lighter socket is provided in two pieces, which unscrew from each other. The original socket is exactly the same.
All you need to do is disconnect the positive power lead from the back of the old connector, unscrew the back of the old socket, remove the two pieces of the old socket from the ashtray assembly, put the new socket in place exactly as the old one was, and reconnect the positive power lead.
Should take you no more than five minutes.

How do you remove a cigarette lighter socket


I'm assuming this is the lighter in the center console by the beverage holder? If not I'll need more details.
.
First you have to make sure the power is cut to it, so either pull the fuse or disconnect the battery. Warning, disconnecting the battery WILL reset things like radio settings and clocks.
.
Now get yourself a flat-head screwdriver. You want to carefully unsnap the front of the beverage holder console, and once the front is unsnapped you can lift it to unsnap the rear of the beverage holder console and remove it.

.
Now grasp the top part of the cigarette lighter's panel and pull it straight out. Make sure you don't yank on the electrical connections. I'd suggest unplugging them so you can work on the lighter easier.

.
From there you simply have to unscrew the retainer from the socket and remove the lighter.
.
If you're installing a new one, just reverse the process.

Hyundai elantra, cigarette lighter had power up to connector plug but lighter not working.


Two very likely problems. Most likely, cigarette lighter element is "dead". Try one out of another car, since almost every one is the same. Second option is the ground wire, which would complete the circuit to make the lighter work. You need to ground the socket shell, and see if that fixes the problem.

Cigarette lighter doesn't work


either the push in part of the lighter is bad a fuse has blown or the actual socket has burned out. check the fuse first if it is good then get behind the lighter and check to see if there is power to the lighter. if there is then replace the lighter assembly while your there. hope this helps

My cigarette lighter is jammed, have been told it could be the fuse but I cant find my manual. Any idea which fuse would need replacing in a W reg VW Polo?


If you mean that the lighter will not pull out of the socket then it's nothing whatever to do with the fuse and everything to do with a bent bit of metal.

All you can do is to use a bit of intelligent brute force: don't just try and yank it out, try pushing it in and twisting slightly before pulling it out.

Ultimately, you may just have to yank it out and can expect to have to replace either the lighter or the lighter and socket afterwards.
