The solution is to buy a new mini fuse (Blue #15) at an autonation or similar. Open the passenger side kick plate fuse box and pull out the fuse in position #9 (upper most left fuse). You will need needle nose pliers or tweezers etc... Insert new fuse and you are done. 50 cent repair and 30 seconds spent screwing with it. Enjoy! Oh, and don't worry about blowing it again. Best I can say is when starting the car, unplug the power sucking device like a radar. Once car is on you can re-insert it the radar. The initial jolt of powering everything on all at once is what blew your fuse in the first place. Get a few additional fuses to have on hand just in case.

Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

All power outlets went out. I replaced the fuse in the side panel but, as soon as I plug anything in, I can hear the fuse pop. I have checked all the other fuses andit is the only one that is blown.


You will need a new power outlet / cig lighter socket. The side tabs can get bent, and it will internally short and blow the fuse, whenever something is installed. Visually look inside the socket to see if the 2 side tabs (ground) are bent inward or downward. The center dot at the very bottom is the power, if it touches the sides or the tabs it will blow the fuse. It could also be the appliance you are plugging in, try something different (like a phone charger).

I first noticed that my power outlets did not work.


Does it blow if you plug in something different. The thing you plugged in might be shorted.

Power outlets don"t work


Be sure what you are plugging into the outlet has the same polarity as the outlet itself. Some of todays accessories being foreign made have a reverse polarity versus american made cars.
