Power Outlet - Cigarette Lighter Fuse problem
Hello. So yesterday my friend tried to charge his iPhone in one of my power outlets on my 2010 Forte Ex. He used an aftermarket charger who he said worked fine in his car.
After a few minutes it started smelling like something was burning. We removed the cable and it stopped. After a few minutes we plug the GPS in and nothing. no power. we checked both fuses(power outlet and lighter ) and they seem fine. Someone mentioned on another forum the actual fuses might be mislabeled so i need to check all of them once i get home.
Also someone mentioned that even if it looks ok a fuse might be blown( small cracks cannot be seen).
Any thoughts? any ideas? thanks
