I have a 97 STS and when I plug in my radar detector into the ciggarette lighter it doesn't go on. I don't know why.... could it be that the fuse is blown or that it just can't support the detector?

Thanks for any help

Does the lighter work? It surly can support a detctr., mine does.

If not probably car fuse or bad lighter connection.

If the lighter works it could be the fuse in the plug-in cord of the detctr.

Sometimes the plug-in part of the cord has to be "jiggled around".

Does the detctr. work OK in another veh.?

If so ?????

The detector works in my other car fine, might be the fuse. I'll see what it is, thanks for advice

Maybe they are illegal in your state. :D

Your cigarette lighter socket is capable of supplying at least 50-100 times the amount of current required by your detector.

It's time to look for a blown fuse or bad lighter socket.
