This is the outlet in the cab, below the dash, forward of the shifterSoulWinner04 said:Hi. The other day my wife had our laptop pluged into an inverter that was plugged into the Aux Power Outlet. The outlets both died and I can't find the cause. The fuse under the hood is good, but there is no voltage to it. I switched around the relays (Tail, EFI, Power Outlet) and the tail lights and EFI work, but the outlets are still dead. What do I check next?
Is this a Tacoma, 4-Runner, pickup?
If you checked the fuse for the power outlet and it's good, then the wire and/or a connection is bad.
On a 2002 Tacoma, just as an example, there are two connections and a fusible link between the outlets and the battery.
One connection is at a wiring harness and the other joins the two power outlets together at a junction under the dash.
The ground wires from each power outlet are spliced and there are two grounds on the instrument panel.
On both grounds: 12V with ignition switch to ACC or ON; always continuity.
From the power source from the ignition, going through the ACC fuse, there is one connection at a wiring harness and another at a junction block (which is in the main relay block under the hood).
Get me the model, year, and engine and I can be exact on everything.
