How do you adjust the temperature on the lighter, i.e., what do you
Without thinking I plugged my radar detector into the lighter socket
once and the temperature has been too low ever since. I assume that
the adjustment is in the socket but dunno S#$% from Shinola about
adjusting the temperature back to bright red hot instead of dull
barely hot enough--or not hot enough at all. I did clean the socket;
doesn't seem to be the problem..
If the hot-enough release is in the lighter element are there
different diameters of elements that must be used?
Just push and hold the lighter in to give it some more juice - your
lighter is releasing too early. You could probably make some
modification to the lighter to get it hotter but you better know what
the heck you're doing.

Thanks. WILCO. I should note to the other responder that holding the
lighter in does NOT make the element hotter; dunno why. (Dunno much
of anything really.) Being an engineer means I may know the
underlying theory but that doesn't mean I understand how to actually
do anything. And being a mechanical klutz adds to that.
I did NOT say that others were allowed to smoke in my car.
But I smoke. It's my car. And I drive 'em 'till the wheels fall off.
So, not for you to worry about.
Ya know, this anti-smoking shit reminds me of the Army. Smokes were a
buck a carton. Rum was 90 cents. Some of us naive country boys got
hooked on booze or cigarettes or both. Even better was the cheap
booze at the NCO clubs. Many wound up being drunks. And. Then. They
threw all those lifers out for being drunks. Huh? Some of us had
never had a drink of hard liquor B4 getting drafted. Perfect suckers
for the booze and cigarette peddlers.
Wait until we die, Ed, B4 you change the rules, eh?
