accessory outlets

Hi

All three of my accessory outlets are blown. The fuses keep blowing. I have a satellite radio and a gps. Previously, I was told not to twist the plugs when they are in the socket. I did not do this and still they are blowing.

Anybody know what the deal is?

Thanks,
yesno

Re: accessory outlets

I'm still having this problem. Now all the accessory sockets in the truck are blown. I am not twisting the plugs in the sockets. Is anyone else having this problem?

Re: accessory outlets

Are they blowing with or without those items? Sounds like there is a short somewhere in the system. When are the outlets blowing?

Complete;
Sony XAV601BT, Polk DB coaxial/sail tweets, Dynamat, V-LED Ext./Int./Dash, GE NightHawk Platinum, Plastidiped Steels/Grill, Duralast Platinum AGM, OEM Tow Harness/Rear Mud Guards, Weathertech F&R Mats/Visors/Bug Shield.

What's the power rating of the GPS and satellite radio? Is the power draw of the devices greater than the rated capacity of the accessory outlets (which is only 120 watts if I recall correctly)?

Re: accessory outlets

Something you're plugging in is blowing it. I'm pretty sure the only "fix" is to not use whatever is causing the issue. I have a small compressor that will blow the fuse if I have anything else plugged into the front.
