I am trying to use both my car adapter and home power adater that I bought from RS and they both do not work on my 96. I have reset and initialized the scanner but the power sources still dont work.

Hopefully someone can give me a heads up on what more I can do.

Thanks!!

Erik - I see what you mean about the polarity. I turned it around to have the positive mark on the same side as the tip mark. The scanner turns on but does not indicate that there is a power supply plugged in. Maybe that how it works.

There is not an indicator on the 96 to say its getting juice. If it works without batteries, you fixed it :).
