Are you just using a charger, or is SatNav/Bluetooth involved also?
The other thing - is it a charger for the San Fran, or a generic one that works with the USB cable? Lastly: does the cigarette lighter work? (no kidding: I had 3 cars in a row where the ciglighters never really worked)

If the cigarette lighter doesn’t work at all, it might be a simple case of replacing the fuse. Try the charger in a different car to determine if the charger is faulty.

to charge the sanfrancisco phone you need a 1 amp charger.
