Trying to stay on top of my maintenance, I was topping off the air pressure for the spare tires in my 2 vehicles. I only have access to those tiny, cheap compressors (2) they put in emergency roadside kits. The cigarette lighter in vehicle A (Equinox) was not working, and being that it had been left uncovered, I think some food crumbs and possibly rust killed it. Not sure.
Cig lighter in vehicle B (Malibu) was worked fine. Compressor A started smoking after I ran it too long, so I unplugged it and ran Compressor B, making sure to exchange compressors frequently and give them time to cool. However, I was running the cig lighter pretty constant for ~20+ min. Then the compressor just shut off. I tried the other compressor (which was functional) but it too wouldn’t work. So I’m afraid I fried the cig lighter on the Malibu at this point.
Sound about right?
