USB Not Working In Car: Causes and Solutions

Here are a few causes of the USB in car not working and how to solve each type of problem quickly. 

1). The problem lies in the USB charging port

This problem can happen when the metal surface inside the USB charging port and the micro USB is not in good contact or awry due to a manufacturing defect. In addition, because it is a portable one, the charging cable will be plugged in and unplugged often, leading to this situation. Please check the small details inside the USB port because its cable may not be in contact with the charger, which leads to this annoying situation.

If it is possible, you should fix the USB port yourself. It is the fastest solution that may enable you to use your USB again quickly without losing any labor fee at the store. What you need to do is clean all of its components from the charging port, charging cord, and the USB as well. Before doing this, remember to turn off all devices. You can use a cotton swab to clean them gently and carefully, then plug them back in as they were.

2). The problem lies in the car’s USB

Moreover, the frequent plugging and unplugging of cables will cause the metal layer inside the charging port and micro USB to be scratched or distorted, making the connection not match, thereby preventing the car from receiving data. Besides, nowadays, many types of USBs do not have a cover, so it’s easy for dust to get inside or lay on the surface or slot. Therefore, drivers should clean it occasionally.

3). The cable makes the car not receive the USB connection

Do you know the part that does not guarantee the most durability is the cable? The cables can be easily damaged by physical impacts such as bending and twisting.

The easiest way to fix this problem is to try the cable with other charging devices to see if it works properly. If it is not working afterward, you should replace the cable with a new one.

4). The monitor does not support USB

Currently, there are USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 corresponding to different types of cars. For the monitor to accept USB, the driver needs to use the correct type recommended by the manufacturer. Besides, each monitor or screen type is installed with a configuration. If your car’s monitor does not support USB, the error may be due to a misconfiguration. Drivers need to change back to the standard format of the car USB, which is FAT32.
