Hello,

Here are diagrams to help you change the power outlet. You should also check fuse No. 9 (15 A) or No. 32 (7.5 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box. Here is a guide to help with diagrams below.

Electrical problem
2003 Honda Accord

The front accessory power outlet in my 2003 Honda Accord does not work. I first checked the fuse for the accessory outlet and replaced the fuse. The outlet still does not work (and yes I have the car in ON). Also, the outlet in the glove compartment does not work. My charger working in my other car. So it is not the charger. Your help would be much appreciated.

Check all your fuses with a testlight or fuse tester. This will ensure that you do not have a blown fuse for any circuit.

If the fuse isn't blown (which usually that is the case) then you will have to check for power and ground to the outlet.

I recently noticed that my dc power outlet for my car charger is no longer working. I plugged the charger into my husband's truck and it worked. My husband checked all of the fuses on the inside of the car and under the hood. He replaced the 7.5 and the 40 fuse and it still did not work. He bought me a navigation system for Christmas and I want the power outlet to work. Please help!

Hi rpruitt,

You need to check for power supply to the power outlet. If power is available, the socket is faulty.

You need to remove the socket wire harness to check.

Hey Everyone. My power outlet (cigarette lighter) doesn't work in my pals ninety three accord. I thought it might be a fuse. I contacted my local Honda dealer and he said the fuse for the lighter was the same as the power antenna motor under the dash. I checked it and it was not blown. I was just curious if anyone knew what the problem might be. I'm thinking it might be the heating element but I'm not sure. Thanks for your time. Hopefully someone can help.

Yes it could be, check the fuse box for cigarette lighter and see if it is blown, then verify that there is power going to the cigarette lighter housing, if so, then its the lighter itself that is bad(element) and you'll just have to replace it

Hi missnay1121,

You need to check if the charger plug is compatible or good. Some plugs might not be getting the proper contact to work.

Test for power supply to centre pin of power outlet, if no power, either the socket or fuse is bad. If socket, you need to replace it.
