Hi again everyone :)
I have a cig. lighter power source and a USB power source under the armrest in my car, but it seems none of them work at all, when I plug in anything in there - phone or dashcam, nothing is getting charged. I have a cig. lighter in the front dashboard which works fine though.
Any idea how/if I can fix these myself?

Thanks!

Hi,

Check out fuse number 23 (Cigarette lighter/Accessory socket) behind the glove box. I think it's a 15amp mini blade fuse.

Chck out the handbook for instructions on removing the glove box lid. a fiddle, but not difficult.

Regards

I can't find anything that would be attached to this charger, I even checked every single fuse in all the fuse boxes and they all seemed fine.
Here is a photo of how this charger looks like

The car is equipped with a Kenwood DDX971BTS if my dealer was not lying :) could that interfere with the charger?

It makes sense.

In my car, that USB port connects to the MMCS computer panel. Your Kenwood device replaces the MMCS as far as I can see.

However the 12 volt accessory socket (the cigarette lighter socket) should just be connected to power on the accessory circuit in the car. So I'm surprised that neither one works.

Now that I think about it, I may not even have that socket in my car, I'll have to check.

I would expect a USB cable to run from that socket to the back of your Kenwood unit, perhaps the installers forgot to plug it in, or, worst case, the unit doesn't have a USB socket.

(Edited to add: Looking online that unit does have a USB socket, so I'm guessing that the cable isn't plugged in, or there is a missing adapter.)

Hi,

Further to my earlier reply, I have a MY 2016 GX4h and my handbook covers the topic in pages 11.17 - 11.19.

In fitting front and rear dash cams I wanted them to be active only when the "ignition" was on or in the accessory position. I found that fuse 23 operated in ths way but fuse 7 (also shown as accessory socket) was always on. Of the 3 accessory sockets in the car I don't know which fuse covers which sockets, so you could try fuse 7.

I would think that it is only a fuse, but maybe not.

Regards

OP, as you have a GX3h the USB problem is likely due to having the aftermarket stereo.

On the original set up, the USB is wired into the Bluetooth module. Once an aftermarket head unit is fitted, you lose both voice dialling and the use of that port in the arm rest.

At the moment I am not bugged by that USB really, because it seems that it is an Input anyway. I do care about that Power Outlet though, can't understand why that wouldn't work and have no idea how to check if it's connect to anything.
