    Has anyone else had any problems w/ the cigarette lighter/12v outlet in the front on the white freightliners? My phone charger will work in it but my XM radio won't. XM will work plugged into the one in the sleeper though..I really don't want to take it to the shop monday for something simple

    Plugs and receptacles go bad, the receptacle is replaceable, but you either have to use a will fit(might have to anyway) and make that work, or go to FL with your VIN and get the right one if available.


    I haven't seen a White Freightliner since about 10 years after that merger quit, but in the 70s, most of the Freightliners I saw were White Freightliners. I'm driving a 'white' Freightliner at my present job.

    lol that description is exclusive to Millis as all of our trucks are burgundy except some our regional columbia freightliners. We had a contract w/ Anheuser-Busch and they wanted white trucks

    But in response...the outlet isn't bad because my phone charger works in it. It's just the XM that won't work in it...but it works in the sleeper outlet so the XM plug isn't bad either.

    that makes no sense. if the phone works then the socket is good. Maybe the contacts on your plug for the xm radio are bad. you should see if someone would let you try their cord. or get one of those splitters and see if it works in that.

    Way to resurrect a 5 year old thread. MILLIS doesn't even own these trucks anymore.
