Power outlet not working
If your vehicle is still under covered by the factory warranty, take it to the dealer (your vehicle appears to be relatively new). If not, first try your appliance (such as a GPS) in another vehicle or try another appliance that is known to be functioning, to make sure that it's not the appliance that has failed. If you have confirmed that the appliance is functioning but it still will not work in your vehicles power point, I would suspect that the power port is not receiving power because of a blown fuse. Remove the cover for the fuse box (located under the dash) and check the diagram on the back of the lid to locate the fuse that supplies power to the power port. You will have to remove the fuse to see whether or not it has failed. You will know that the fuse has failed if the wire inside the fuse appears to have burned and you see (2) contacts instead of (1) continuous wire loop. If the fuse has failed, replace it with a fuse that has the same amperage as the original. If all of the fuses are good and you know that your appliance is functioning but you still don't have power at the power point, remove the panel that supports the power port and check the connection between the body wiring harness and the power port. If this connection is tight and you still do not have power, disconnect this connection and use an electrical tester to see if you have power from the body wiring harness to the connection itself. If you do not have power at the connection, then there must be a broken wire that will have to be traced and replaced. If you do have power at this connection, then you'll know that the power point is defective (non-serviceable) and will have to be replaced. Unfortunately, this part would only be available from your dealer. Hope this helps.
