G Techs and Early Fords

First i dont want to start a thread on GTech accuracy.

What i am asking is has anyone had any dramas plugging one into an XA falcon ciggy lighter socket? The Gtech i just bought plugs straight into my BA XR8 ciggy socket and lights up straight away. But in the XA Coupe it doesnt seem as good a fit and wont light up (the ciggy lighter works perfectly BTW)

Anyone else had this problem?

Re: G Techs and Early Fords

The socket is too deep. You notice it's deeper than the BA one. Fit a new one from autobarn or a s/h one from an XD. Then it'll work fine.

Your welcome. I've done the same for mine so I can run my mobile phone charger.
