2008 Toyota Sequoia Question: Power surges in the dash are destroying cell phone chargers, etc.

 

Question

Visitor, Charleston, SC, November 07, 2010, 14:14

I have had two cell phone charges 'die' and most recently a rechargeable flashlight's batteries exploded while plugged in. I'm guessing power surge? Also have trouble with lights going out intermittently but working a day or two later?

    i would have your alternator checked for overcharging. something you would not notice all the time. a usual indicator is burning out headlamps prematurely.
