Default Help finding replacement Sportster car Vehicle power adapter

Hi all, so my Vehicle power adapter for the Sportster that plugs into the cigarrete lighter has broken. Anyone else have this problem?

Everything else works fine, so all I need is this replacement cord.

Is there somewhere that I just can buy this that someone can direct me - I looked on the Sirius site and I can't find anything there.

Should I send an email directly to Sirius help desk and see if they will send me one, which I would be more than happy to pay for. Just don't want to buy a whole new adapter kit.

Hey guys, my power adapter stopped working as well. After I bought a new one, I unscrewed the metal tip part that goes into the lighter from the broken adapter, and there is a little fuse in there. Got a new fuse at Radio Shack for like a fifty cents, and it works fine now.
So give that a go before coughing up the dough for a new one.

Good point Shralper.
I skip that point because they said is broken. But anyhow thats true there is a fuse in the inside, depending the radio it can be from 2a to 5a. If you are going to change it make sure you place the fuse on the buttom and the spring on top.

Great - thanks for all the advice! I'll try the fuse route first.
