1999 996 12 volt outlet "adaptors"

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 19,535;

Regarding the question from a member concerning 12 volt outlet size: I remember that Valentine One, and also Passport, include a plastic "collar" with their radar detectors to address the size problem (familiar to most males - sorry, couldn't resist). The collar allows the smaller male plug to fit snugly in some 12 volt outlets. This was a more widespread problem in the 80's & 90's with "european" cars but has been less so on later model cars due to more "standardization" of plugs and outlets.Maybe Valentine or Passport will sell to member. Item is so cheap, they might just send one for a handling and postage charge (to "replace the one lost?") The "collar" was not needed in my 996, BMW or wife's Mercedes.Member is welcome to email me at for any help.
