I have a 2002 Ford Explorer. The accessory plugs (cell chargers, GPS, chargers, etc.) have stopped working. Neither plug will work, front/rear.
I checked the fuses under the dash and could not find any that needed replacing.
Any suggestions or what specific fuse I should look at?

Should be under the steering wheel like any other car. There is a box. Just open up the box (You may need to pry off the cover with a flat head screw driver). I own a 91 Explorer and there is a diagram right on the back of the cover along with a fuse pulling tool. The owners manual will also have a diagram. Look for the terms "Accessory", "Lighter", "Socket" etc. Any Ford I've ever seen supplies power to the cigarette lighter even when the car isn't running so it will be easy to test.
Stop plugging into the console power point with whatever it is that you keep plugging in that is blowing the fuse. The truck is not the CAUSE of the problem. Your defective accessory is. (cell phone charger, radar detector, GPS unit...whatever it is...?)
There is a 15 amp PWR OUTLET fuse, I believe it's in the engine compartment relay box--by the battery. There is also an accessory relay in the circuit. If the fuse isn't burned out, try swapping the relay with the horn relay. Let me know if you have questions.
In the battery Junction Box check fuse # 6-60AMP will feed Central Junction Box (under driver side), the inline circuit breaker #47-30AMP, through the
Accessory Delay Relay, powered by fuse #17-15AMP to the Window Control
Circuit. Check the fuses, and for 12v at the points. Then check for 12v
at the driver side door switch pannel.
Also uou should check the plug into the main window button console in your
drivers door. The little piece of plastic around the door handle pops
out when pushed towards the front of the vehicle. This gives you access
to the buttons and harnesses.
