The 12 V power socket (not cigarette lighter) has stopped working after plugging in a faulty cell phone charger. Every fuse I can find seems ok. Ideas? Is there another fuse separate from the fuse panel?
I checked the panel on the end of the dash and under the hood.
Do you

Hi:
If the fuses are all good, you will need to start at the power outlet's power supply and work backwards until you find power. I believe the power supply is the same as the one for the cigg lighter, so if it has power the other should too. Use a test light and work backwards to see where the power is lost. Not a fun job, but it's the only way.
