So randomly my cigarette adapter doesn't seem to be supplying power or
at least full power. I was wondering if there is a way to check it
What I mean is that all of a sudden it's not running my GPS or charging
my cell phone which it did well untill like a week ago. First the cell
phone charger went now today it stopped running the GPS. The odd thing
is that the led on the charger is working. So I know there is power.
So some stupid issue is going on and I want to know a good why to
tackle it before I go to the dealer or some other service center.
try cleaning it out with a q tip and alchohol (make sure u unplug the
battery first!) Swab all inside of the hole, and pay attention to the end on
the inside... might be gunked up and not making contact...
You may need to give the plug in a twist or two in order to make good
contacts. The male end of the plug may need a quick clean and buff with
emory cloth / sandpaper. If it gets too annoying, replacement sockets are
cheap and easy to replace. This type of thing is common to many vehicles.
