Hi. I have a 2005 Acura TSX. I have 2 power outlets in my car. Both are not working. I thought it was a blown fuse so I replace the fuse. I then plug in my phone charger to check, one outlet works but the other one doesn't. Then I remove the phone charger (on the outlet that works) and plug the phone charger back in again (on the same outlet). Suddenly it doesn't work. Please help!

Thank you for answering! According to my car manual, both outlets use the same fuse. I replace the fuse twice and the outlets are still not working.
