110V Power Point will not power tablet

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a 2017 MKZ Hybrid and I am unable to get the 110V power point to charge/power my tablet. The user manual said it should support things up to 150W. I use a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. My particular model only draws a maximum of 30W, and the charger is rated at 65W. In either case, this should work. And I'm wondering why it doesn't. I don't think the issue is the charging cable, because it's the same one I at home. I'm also hoping the issue isn't the power point itself--I plug in my Galaxy S7 edge phone, and that charges just fine. I just can't get my tablet to recognize that it is connected to the charger and a power source. When I start the ignition and plug it in, the green light does glow steady, indicating that it should be working. But it isn't.

​Any suggestions?
Thanks...

Try another charger if you have one to charge your tablet to see if thats the issue. Its weird because those 110v sockets in our lincolns really hold alot of power, I myself use it to power 2 active DJ speakers and they work just fine, and I have also used it to charge my tablet with no issues. I would say switch the charger, and if that does not work, take it back to the dealer.
