Like some advice on what to look for to find the problem. 2014 Laramie
What were you trying to power with it???
Just an air compressor. No, phone.
The power converter is only rated at 150 watts max. It should reset automatically after the overload is removed, just check the owners manual if you have one. Also check what fuse goes to it in your owners manual or on the fuse box cover.
Where is converter located
I believe it's F38 which is a 30amp FFM fuse.
Under the passenger seat
It turned out to be fuse. Didnt know there was two fuses for that.
That helped crash. Thanks
What is the power usage of your air compressor?
If the listed wattage is higher than 150, obviously you cant use it.
Some devices dont list wattage though, but if not, it should list the current draw in amps.
To calculate watts, multiply amps x volts.
In this case, volts = 120, so for example:
If your compressor draws 5 amps, then
5 x 120 = 600 watts. Way too much
Use a little algebra and work that equation backwards
150 watts (max allowable) divided by 120 volts = 1.25 amps max allowable current.
If you plug in something that draws more than 1.25 amps of current, the fuse will blow and protect you from burning down your truck.
