12 volt Power outlet in Chrysler Mini Van does not work

I have a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country minivan. There are two 12 volt power outlets on the center stack - one is active only when the key is on, the other is supposed to be hot at all times - battery direct. The battery direct one is dead. According to the owners manual there is no user servicable fuse on this outlet. - it must be serviced by the dealer. I would like to get it working again, without paying the dealer. Is there a hidden fuse, or a circuit breaker for this power outlet?

Im sure of a fuse somewere and its probably a large one.
if the unit shorts it has to have a fuse first thing.
you may find a fuse under the hood in the fuse box.
and then you may find a fuse in the unit itself .
the other thing is to remove it and connect it to another car battery.
if you have a bad unit then a salvage yard in your area should have one.
also test the power in your car going to the unit.if its set to run all the time then theres a fuse at the battery or the fuse box.
one other thing is check for recalls
you may get lucky.

hope this helps

Blower motor is hard to replace. Test it by putting 12 volts on the connector located under the passenger dash. Polarity doesn't matter.

What is max current from 12 volt lighter/power sockets on 2005 Chrysler town and country touring

Max current is 20A for the lighter/power sockets. This can be confirmed two ways -- the first is the power sockets typically have the number printed on the plastic outlet cover, the second is to look in the manual for the fuse ratings on this circuit.

Chrysler town and country both power outlets not working

In the Fuse and Relay BOX Under hood Driver side. Take Lid off and Looking at it by way of Standing on side of Van. The Fuse you need to Replace is on TOP ROW (count from Front end of Van) Count to 7th FUSE and that is the one for BOTH Power Sockets 20 amp Fuse. There is a BLANK Fuse Spot in the ROW Dont Count it ONLY COUNT FUSES. Im Sure you will find this to be the Right Fuse, Otherwise Look at INSIDE of the BOZ LID For anything Further. Please RANK me If You FEEL I DESERVE IT
