2014 nissan murano 12v power outlet at Center console and Cargo Area not working.

The fuse for the console outlets is a 20 amp fuse #33 in the fuse block. There is a relay involved and a 10 amp fuse for the control side of this relay. It, the fuse, is #19 in the fuse block. Check both fuses as either can make the circuit not function.

a: FSM real expensive
b: hope has it.

which one, there are up to 3?
quotes from FSM

located near the bottom of the instrument panel center stack area, below the radio.
A front console mounted power outlet is standard equipment and a rear cargo area power outlet is optional equipment on this model. The front console mounted power outlet is mounted inside the center console. This outlet can be used as a cigar lighter or power outlet, but only has 12 volt battery voltage when the ignition is in the ON or ACC positions. The rear power outlet is installed in the right rear quarter trim panel, near the spare tire jack.

amazing huh? and ive not a clue which one fails or what you wish to do with it, (No problem stated, no job stated, or anything)

The power plug inside the center console has no power at the plug. The fuse is good. Why is there no power to that plug?

Sometimes the wire on the bottom side of the outlet comes loose. Remove the out let and check the wires. If the wiring is good, check with a test light or meter and see if you have power at the outlet. If there is power there, replace the outlet, If not, check the wiring back to the fuse box

Chrysler center console power outlet fuse

There is a contact point at the rear of the sliding console that is poorly designed and over time, and 'abuse' of moving the center console or it being jostled by children getting in and out, will eventually fail. This is not an eletrical failure, but a mechanical one.

My lighter doesnt work, i have two and one doesnt work

There are actually FIVE cigarette lighter/ Auxilliary Power Outlets shown in the wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
The Instrument Panel [1] Accessory Power Outlet (Cigarette Lighter) is protected by the "LTR" Fuse (# 53 - 20 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The Instrument Panel [2] Accessory Power Outlet is protected by the "AUX PWR" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash.

The Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet and the (two) Center Console Power Outlets are protected by the "AUX PWR 2" Fuse (20 Amp) In the Instrument Panel Fuse Block on the left side of the dash. NOTE: If your vehicle is not equipped with the Center Seat Accessory Power Outlet, or the Custom Floor Console (optional), this fuse position will most likely be empty.

Spare 12 volt power outlet failure

First probe the center contact in the power outlet with 12V test and confirm power or not. ( check with ign on since some outlets might only have power with the key or engine on ) If no power and all other interior items operate, remove outlet and check connection. It might not have ever been connected since being built. It happens .
