Question about 2005 Cadillac CTS
The outlet on the back of the console works fine. The one located in the ash tray doesn't. I can only find one 30 amp fuse that appears related. The fuse is good. If I remove it, the back outlet stops working. Where is the fuse for the ash tray outlet located? Thanks.
I had exactly same problem. I could not use my GPS or charge my cell phone.
In front of the driver sit, there are actually 2 fuse boxes. You probably found the first one. A second one is located above well hidden. Once you find it, you'll find the fuse you are looking for.

If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.

Have you checked for voltage at the lighter? have you checked the ground wire. Look for broken or frayed wires.

Tips for a great answer:
Fuse #9 feeds the power outlet and fuse #18 feeds the lighter outlet. They are both located in the fuse box in the trunk, next to the battery. If you open the trunk and lift the floor up you'll see them hiding under there. The numbers should be called out on the cover for the fuse box.
