I want to use an Escort radar detector, but cannot get power from the lighter outlet under the center console. Someone mentioned I may need a Standard Female Hella0(DIN) socket to Cigarette lighter type Socket adapter. Can anyone answer if this is the problem, or if I should have it serviced to check and see if the outlet is live?

I have a similar lighter plug for my Vantrue dash cam. At first I thought I wasn't getting power from the outlet then I remembered that that vehicle needs to be running. Works like a charm.

I have plugged in and used my Escort in that power receptacle under the console without an adapter and my Escort has always powdered up.
