The cigar lighter by the handbrake works but will not
charge a mobile phone or radar detector, yet the 12volt
socket in the boot works fine. A friend has the same
problem. Does anybody know how to fix this issue ?
An inquiry such as, "My _______ is not working - how
can I fix it?" is difficult to answer. If you will provide
more information about the problem symptoms you are
more likely to get a solution:
What does "will not charge" mean?
Sends no current?
Sends insufficient power?
Sends current but not all the time?
Does not accommodate a connector plug?
What are the problem symptoms or actions of the radar
detector and the mobile phone? Does the radar detector
have batteries needing to be charged? How can the
lighter socket work but at the same time not work?
What is the voltage at each socket?
