thanks steve!! i guess its cheaper for them to just pop in a lighter, than to put a "power point" cover on it...my 94 f150 had the power point cover...

#8 of 14 Newbie - Power Source/Cigarette lighter question
Aug 29, 2007 (7:51 am)
Newbie Question - When I shut down the car, the gps plugged into the cigarette lighter does not power off, even with the truck totally off. I assume this will drain the battery. Is there anyway to make the power source shut off when I shut the truck down? I really don't want to have to unplug the gps every time I shut the engine off.
#10 of 14 Cigarette Lighter/Power Port Not working either
Jan 03, 2008 (8:44 am)
Both of my ports are no longer working. I don't know what the problem could be. First the power port went out, and then the cigarette lighter port went out. Where are the fuses that I need to check for this? I've take off my center console and my dash console to verify that the wiring is connected.
Please help, I'm at my wits end trying to get this to work.

Look under the hood in the fuse box. They are labeled Power Point #1 and Power Point #2
Replace those fuses, you should be back in business then.

I have the same problem with a 1996 Explorer XLT, the accessory power ports do no power off when the ignition is switched off leaving the GPS running. Was there any suggestions on this?

Ok, I have the same exact problem with the front power socket not working on my 2004 Ford Explorer. Fuses look ok. I can not bring up any replies listed above. Any help out there?

I have a 2007 Ford Explorer Sports Trac and having this same issue. Just bought it two days ago from the dealer and the power points don't work now. I checked the fuses labeled 21 and 25 (Front Power Point and Read Power Point) and both fuses are fine. I went as far as replacing the fuses just in case and still no luck. I'm getting the run around from the dealership on claiming I must have stuck something in it other than a cigerrette lighter (Even though there are no ash trays in this vehicle) and they are not wanting to fix it under warranty. This is my first time buying a Ford and I'm starting to get highly aggrivated. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can solve this issue on my own without going to the dealership again and having words? I would appreciate any help anyone has out there.
