    My power outlet quit working and I can't find a fuse or cause. The cigar lighter is okay so I'm rather puzzled. TIA

    If you have the owners manual ir should tell what fuse to check. Nothing attached to metal any more so it could be a simple ground problem.

    The owners manual doesn't show anything for the power outlet, just the cigar lighter. It's working so they must be on different circuits. Puzzled.

    The center of the outlet is power. It can be checked with a simple test light or volt meter. Power to ground.. Use an ohm meter to check the ground to any known good ground. At least you will know which side of the port is bad.

    I did some google research and other guy's are saying it's on the back of the fuse block with one other fuse.
