Question about 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE
Changed the all of the fuses
So there are two parts to the outlet. 1. is the metal ring or cone that is your ground. (-) Test that first by putting your test light on a positive terminal and touching the ring it should light bright. If dim or doesnt light you have a bad ground. The second part 2. Look in the center of the outlet all the way in the back of it. There is a little button or piece of metal right in the center usually surrounded by plastic. That is you positive (+). Test for power there by putting the key to the on or run position and putting your test light to ground and to the center of the outlet. if it lights bright you are good to go. If its dim or not on at all then you have a bad connection or broken wire. If these test are all good, then what ever you are plugging in is faulty.

Toyota Sienna Electrical Problems
It is possible a relay switch could have failed. Remember to isolate and troubleshoot each step. Use a meter to check your fuses. And, from my experience's. Get out the manual a good flashlight and follow the fuse block diagram with the manual in hand. Count each space. It is possible to skip over an empty slot or put a fuse in one.
Test your outlets. If you see 4.5 volts DC, it is likely you have missed a fuse. Should there be no voltage or the test light does not work; when testing acquire a good known ground. Run a separate wire from the negative terminal to the test equipment when checking pinpoints.
A relay may also be the culprit. You may see no voltage if that has failed. Make sure the cable is secure to each outlet after testing to it. There are two fuse boxes in most vehicles. One under the hood (main fuses and relays with links) and one inside the compartment ( Miniature fuses). Last, fuse links directly attached to outlets in some cases. If you verify known 12.4vdc with the ignition to on. Your chances are good you will be able to isolate your problem with success.
