Weird question homie, but did you by chance hook up your ground and power wire to the lighter?Originally posted by lowrider_cutlass@Sep 6 2005, 02:48 PM~3763346
ok heres the problem, i installed my cd/mp3 deck a while ago and it worked fine, i touched the cigarette lighter the other day and the stereo shut off, i then went to turn it back on and it had no power... now every time i start the car, the deck will light up for a second and then shut off, and wont turn on... so if it will light up doesnt that mean it has power? then why wont it turn on????
please all help appreciated
If that was the case, then maybe last time when it blew, you were drawing too much current off the line only rated for the cigarrette lighter, and this time it could just be a loose ground OR power wire...
No its not the correct way to do it, but I have seen it many times... Just a thought
