Hi I'm 16 years old and have just bought my first car. It's a 2001 Mazda protoge. Today while I was driving I plugged in a USB charger for my phone and the radio shut off. Now the radio won't turn on and the outlet for the USB charger doesn't work. I have no idea what happened. Could anyone explain?
OK so it blew a 15 amp fuse. Thanks for the help. I also want to know how it blew a 15 amp fuse so next time it won't happen. Does the radio actually draw that much current? Or did I short circuit the outlet by plugging the USB charger in? If you could help me figure out why it happened that would be great.
