My son wanted to hide and tuck the wiring to our tomtom N14644 so he sniped off the plug and wired it directly into the fuse box . Red on the fuse and black is grounded to the body. when we plugged the unit back in it went blank and now wont turn back on.. did we short circuit the unit

    Well I just answered my own question... Its not that the wiring was wrong or reversed. its that the unit only takes 5v not 12v .POOF diode dead. Anyone need a good battery , speaker or screen?
