My electronics outlet & cigarette lighter do not work. I checked fuses & found a bad one & replaced it.
They still do not work.

However, now the airbag light flashes 5 times then 2 times - for a series of 4 times & then stays on.

Can you tell me what is wrong & how to fix it?

The manuals only say - take it to a repair center.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Hello .. thanks for the donation .. much appreciated

Code 52 is telling you there is an intermittent battery voltage drop on airbag voltage supply line ..this could have been caused when the Cigar lighter and Power outlet fuse blew ..this needs to be turned off by diagnostic scanner .. the fuse for the Cigar lighter and power outlet are the same fuse and is marked as this in the underhood fuse box, if this is the fuse you replaced you willneed to check the wiring for short's etc. .. hope this helps .. let me know

Description
The air bag diagnostic monitor measures voltage at terminal C276-14, circuit 937 (Red/White) of air bag diagnostic monitor connector. Voltage at this terminal should be equal to battery voltage. If voltage at C276-14, circuit 937 (Red/White) drops below 8 volts, diagnostic monitor will flash Code 12 on AIR BAG warning light. If voltage at this terminal drops below 5 volts, DTC B1867 will be stored in memory. If the loss of battery voltage at terminal C276-14, circuit 937 (Red/White) is intermittent or repaired, air bag diagnostic monitor will flash Code 52 (or higher priority code if exists) on next ignition cycle.
Possible Causes
Low voltage at air bag diagnostic monitor terminal C276-14, circuit 937 (Red/White) may be caused by an open in battery circuit, a short to ground on battery feed circuit, or a problem in charging system.
