Last night, both power outlets stopped working for no apparent reason. We were made aware the power source alarm on our Garmin navigation system indicated that it was on battery power. I've checked the associated fuse in the driver's side fuse case, but it's good. What might be the problem? Is there something else that controls their operation?

Hello,

There is an accessory relay (passenger compartment fuse panel) that needs to be checked here is a guide to help you with the relay location in the diagrams below.

I have included the fuse panel location and identifications as well. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

The power outlets may have it's own fusable link. You have to remove it to see it.

The outlet on the back of the center console is not working. I thought it might be a blown fuse but when I checked I found that there was nothing wrong with the fuse in it. What else could be wrong?

It could be a broken wire, bad ground, or the unit itself is bad. The first thing to do is check to see if there is power to the outlet. If there is, replace the outlet. If there isn't, you need to first confirm there is power at the fuse. If there is, start at the outlet and work backwards checking for an open in the wiring.

Would it be possible for me to check all of this myself without prior experience?

If you are careful and don't short anything out, you should be fine. All you need is a test light to see if power is at different points.
