Question about 2005 Chevrolet Venture
The front power outlet does not work. So, I checked and replaced the 20A fuse but the moment I plug the fuse, the fuse ''breaks''/blows.
I am thinking that there is a grounded wire somewhere... any suggestions where/how to check?
Unplug anything in lighter and see if fuse blows, if does unplug connector from back of lighter housing and install another fuse, if blows again have grounded wire if not housing is shorted

I would check directly behind the outlet first, it sounds like the movement over the years may have caused the pos, and neg wires to un sheath, and touch. Then, if possible, trace back from there to power source, shouldn't be too awful to locate. Hope all goes well.

if the fuse is good and there is no relay then either you have a loose ground/positve wire or the socket is bad. you can easily purchase a after market socket from Napa or Oreillys for a few dollars of the problem is not a loose wire or bad fuse. good luck please rate this solution...thanks

SOURCE: Fuse panel diagram
Can't remember the number off hand, for some reason 43 keeps popping into my head but this could be really far off, but it is on the top row kind of in the middle in the fuse panel on the side of the dash that is visible with the drivers door open. You should be able to spot it if it is blown. I'll look when I go out to my car and hoepfully I remember to update this answer.

on a 1998 the fuse block is located behind a dust shield under the steering column. two plastic screws hold a cover plate up. simply turn these a 1/4 turn and the cover should fall out and there is your fuse block for the inside. also one on the drivers side under the hood behind battery. these are mainly buss fuses and relays. good luck hope this helps.

look under ur dashs fuse box covers for a white label which should tell u of the locateion of the fr-acc fuse or rr-acc socket fuse location. replace the burnt fuse or fuses.(acc = accessory)
