Power inverter for my truck doesnt give power to my electronics

It's a cheap a$$ cobra 1500 watt and it does not have a reset button on it unfortunately

Check the outlet. Does it have a reset button in the center of it. Some do and some don’t. What brand is it?

I had the truck on when I tried it. Just to be safe lol .but I looked and didnt find any fuse by the battery.

There may be a 250 amp fuse in a black rubber and casing in your battery compartment..

Your total amperage far exceeds with that inverter can supply.

Don’t ever run a microwave or toaster oven without either the engine or the APU being on.

I would check the length of your hot cable, you may have tripped an inline breaker that is separate from the fuse on the inverter. I have a 300 watt breaker installed and when it blows I hear a pop then I get zero power. I flip the breaker back on and it all works again.

Either start at the inverter or at the battery, follow the red cable from one end to the other and look for a breaker somewhere between the two ends. Mine looks like this.

Did you say you did or didn't check the trucks fuse block? Also when you push the power button on the inverter does it light up at all, any light or fan on?

Its 1500 watts should've put it on op sorry

Make sure you turn the inverter OFF, then turn it ON again. If you get the "pop" sound again, with nothing working, you're out of luck. Either the inverter is defective or too small.

Sounds to me like the inverter isn't large enough to handle that load. You may have to only run some things individually.

How many watts is the inverter rated for? Is it hard-wired to the truck's power system?

Hey everybody I just got a truck and plugged in my tv xbox fridge and then I plugged in my toaster oven and heard a pop after that nothing will turn on. I checked the fuses and even replaced them in the inverter but still dont have any power to my appliances. Any ideas what the issue could be thanks.

Buying my first truck need some info

Yeah I'm doing 20,000 down. payments are supposed to be 1600 a month for 36 months

So your financing it? What rate did you get? Are you putting a down payment on it?

You really need to take the time and learn about financing. You need to understand how interest and principle are computed to make your monthly payment amount.

If you have not signed any papers yet, I would reconsider this move until you educate yourself better. You will always pay more for monthly payments with interest than straight cash.

Be your own boss and work when you want to work and how you want to

Hey Josh, I'm just curious ‐ what's the lure of owning your own truck?
