So I have a 97 Camry. I plugged my 200W power inverter (basically converting the car inverter to an acwall adapter)… I plugged in a small handheld vacuum to vacuum my car. After Vacuuming for a few minutes, the inverter just shut off. So I unplugged it and noticed that the insert cover for the plug on my car say 12 V/ 120W… so I figure I blew a fuse.
this is what the fuse map looks like. http://imgur.com/a/0nDIt
The top one never worked and that is where the Cigarette Lighter sits… the bottom one is the one I use for chargers and stuff and that is the one I plugged my inverters into. Looking at the fuse map, I am assuming the top port is the Cig fuse and the bottom port is the power outlet fuse (since it say 12VC/120W on the cover)…
I’ve tested both the the power outlet fust and the cig fuse and they both work. From a Visual inspection, it looks fine. Using one of those fuse testers that came with my box of fuses, it is fine… (i.e. the light lit up when I touched the metals together)…I have replaced the fuse for the power outlet. But the power outlet/bottom port doesn’t work still… I’ve tried plugging in my GPS charger into it and it won’t charge… I am unsure how to fix this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
When tapping the fuse tester (the metal parts) in both ports, it lights up… so there is electricity there…I think.
