My titanium has a 3 pin plug socket in the back of the centre arm rest. Does anybody know what would be safe to plug in as I tried the Hoover when trying to clean it and there didn't power it!

Have something to contribute?

Probably trying to pull too much power and blown a fuse.

240v inverters don't normally pull more than a few amps:

^^ That's a 500w one so no more than about 2 amps.

As far as I know, the most you can usually pull from auxillary power points on a car is about 150W.

No way can it power a vacuum cleaner, they are rated anything up to about 2kW

They're usually for powering an optional powered cooler box or a portable DVD player.
