    Dang! Scotty was right. I unplugged the phone charger in my Acura TL, and the car immediately turned into a 94 Toyota Celica!
    Thanks for the tip, Scotty!

    Im an old car tech( military mechanic/dealer/independent shops) from the 90"s, i had a big life change so to speak, so I started doing some auto service again for some friends, my primary customer got a used 97" Toyota Camry 4-cyl(114k mi), it is clean with no rust but was behind/neglected, i told him once it is caught up on service/repairs it will be a real superstar, it now passes legit emissions insp, runs great/good power/ handles well again, nice unit that is paid for, (I use Rockauto parts). I also svc his girlfriends 96"Honda Civicc LX(it also passes legal emission insp)- Bro Scotty is the real deal auto Tech(not a parts changer)- I found this channell doing tech update info for a 2002 Ford F-150 , I automatically recognized this man as a good/honest/ qualified mechanic, ya"ll pay attention & you will benefit from his hard earned skillset.

    Scotty, ...even cheap inverters can provide EMI....!!! The voltage being switched in inverters is 110/220 this has more chance of interference than a simple 5v adapter...

    Thanks for info Scotty. I had no idea these plugs would create such a problem.

    Scotty, the problem with the cheap ones is that they use poor quality and simple components to built it, and there's no "safety" in case of overloading it! By the way these things don't convert DC to AC and back to low DC voltage... they just use a simple circuit called step-down IC that reduces from 12V to 5V!

    I just bought a 2008 truck and noticed that the low pressure tire light comes on after driving the vehicle for about 20 minutes. Would check tires and they were all good. I always have my phone plugged in with cheap charger. Getting rid of charger and see what happens. Thanks for your video Scotty!

    Go to your local department store and buy a rechargeable battery to charge your phone. Then charge the battery at home and keep it handy and you'll never need to charge your phone in your car.
