I tried to hardwire my radar detector into my truck. I am electronically retarded. Anyway, I turned it on with the truck, it zapped and went dead. The fuse blew. I replaced the fuse and plugged it in with a regular cigarette lighter cord. Fuse blew again. I went back and put a larger fuse in the cigarette lighter cord.
Plugged it in...zap, sparks, smoke!!!:eek: ):h
Opened it up and didnt see anything melted and no burn marks. It seems to be working fine too with this larger fuse, even after the fireworks and meltdown. I have picked up K band and Ka band and X band too, since. But I am still not sure if it is working 100%. I figure that during the meltdown I must have screwed something up. Is there anyway to tell if it is qorking 100%

Thats funny that you let the smoke out of your radar detector.
