Power Outlet on 06LJ has no power HELP!

The 12v Power Outlet (next to the cig lighter) on my 06LJ has no power. I looked behind the glove box and found the cig lighter fuse but did not see the fuse for the power outlet. Anybody know where I can check??

Got your ignition key switch turned to the On position? That socket is dead otherwise

I thought the Cig lighter is the one that works on the key and the Power Outlet was always hot.

Either way mine doesn't work at all. Any ideas on what I can check??

How are you coming to the conclusion that the plug is not working? is one of your devices not working? have you tried other devices to make sure that the plug from that device is working fine? most electronics have fuses built into the plug that goes into the cig lighter so that may have gone bad.

Yes I have tried many 12V devices and no power. Like I said I know its always supposed to be hot (unlike the cig lighter) but I've tried to run it with the vehicle on and off and nothing. Just dead.

I plan to take the bezel out this weekend and try to follow the lead, I'll check to see if it has a fuse built into it.

SO.. its strange the cigarette lighter has a fuse behind the glovebox but the power outlet doesn't and they sit next to each other... hmmm

Not sure which is which but the one on the left is the "switched outlet" and the one on the right is the constant. Which means you are correct that the outlet seems to be messed up.

Try with the key switch to accessory just to make sure there wasn't a change and both are "switched"

Was this vehicle a used purchase? Someone may have cut the lead to run some other electronic device (xm radio, blue lights, radar detector, etc) and wanted the wiring kept inside. I'm sure when you pull the bezel you will know for sure.

I dont know about your truck, but my WK has 3 different fuse boxes, one under the dash, and 2 under the hood...Be sure to check them all...Did you look in your owners manual to find out which fuse controls the socket?

No I haven't been home but I will tonight. It wasn't a problem till I took a long road trip to Canada and found I could not plug in my GPS and the kids video system at the same time!
