Accessory Power Outlet comes loose
« on: March 24, 2009, 11:06:00 am »
This isn't very technical.  But when I plug my Sirius Cigarette power adapter into the Front Accessory Outlet, it wiggles llose after about 30 seconds.  Do I need one of the Ducati/BMW type power plug adapter?  Or does anyone have a simple fix?  My simple fixes are just not looking too good.    Thanks,    BadDad

Use a toothpick with it- works on mine!  ""

Well that was simple.    And looks better than duct tape.    I use duct tape for everything.    Thanks, I'll try it.

I cut the end off a black wire tie and use it. Keep it in the glove box so it is always handy. Can't see it with the black back ground of the dash.   Sammie Timmons  74 gt380 totaled  74 gt750 totaled  80 gs850 totaled  05 vulcan 750 traded  08 c14 my baby  08 versys (my wife's)

The $20 fix is go the Wal Mart and in the auto section where they sell trailer parts find Casco pickup truck bed liner power outlet and go home and put out the old outlet and replace it with this one and you will be ever happy. For me it was about 15 minute job.

I can't believe how well my BMW socket and plug works.
