Having problems with your Radio Shack 120VAC 4" Fan ?

Fan blew 12v car fuse

\015 I had bought a fan from radioshack to install next to my amp to cool it down. i also bought a 12v cig adapter for it, you plug it in to your car outlet and the end is pre spliced (for easy installation...) and on the fan i just wanted to see if it would work so i twisted the wires of the positives and negatives of the fan correctly and the 12v adapter and i plugged them in. as soon as i did that the fuse blew. My car's cigarette lighter does not work i've tried plugging many things into it. what do i do?\015

Answers :

You probably burnrd out the wiring into the lighter or, you burned the contacts in the lighter socket. You can not use an AC fan in a car. A car is DC.
