Is the fuse on the snowmobile ? Is the polarity correct ? Have you tried it in your car/truck to make sure the cord is good ?

I know that some of the early H2O had bad cords and it sound like the cord might have a short in it.

It's the same cord I was useing in the truck.It keeps blowing the fuse in the cig adapter. Guess I'll try it back in the truck and see what happens. I bought the unit last spring.

Are the wires color coded ? I don't suppose you would have a volt meter cause the center of the lighter should be positive. Would you have anything else that you could plug in ?

The H2O should not draw enough amps to blow 1 amp fuse so how many amps is the fuse it is blowing ?

Going back to the garage thanks for the help.

It's blowing a 2amp fuse.I pulled the cig adapter out and noticed a spot that is flattened out where it ran through the cowling on the sled.Perhape enough to damage the wires inside ?? I plugged it back into the truck and when I plugged the unit into the cord the indicator light on the cig adaptor became very dim.
