Hi I'm a newbie that's been given a Luiton LT-298. It came with a cigarette lighter connection but seems to keep blowing the 3amp fuse that's in the plug housing. My cigarette lighter in my van works fine as I've tried other things in it.. just want to get on air but gone through 5 fuses already, hope someone can help.

I would imagine the protection diode has gone short circuit basically kicking the power back out of the radio and blowing the fuse. Don't be tempted to put a bigger fuse in there as it may cause more serious problems. The diode in the radio needs replacing. Either that or the plug has been wired wrong.
