Is there a fuse for the "Power Outlet?"

My '99 has both a cig lighter and a power outlet, the power outlet gave out a few months ago and I haven't found a fuse or anything to check for it. About that same time the same thing happened to my '01 Ram which also has both outlets. Is there a fuse for the power outlet or what else should I check?

TIA

EDIT: oops, I guess i'm already half asleep, I put this in Dakota instead of D-go. But I assume that's ok for this question anyway. sorry, my bad.

Check the owners manual. It should have a diagram for where the fuse is. Most likely its in the fuse block under the hood (Power Distribution Center). I doubt there is a separate fuse for the cig lighter and the power outlet. But i could be wrong.

If there isn't a separate power outlet fuse, I'd check the outlet itself. The contacts tend to wear out inside the cylinder.

I had the same problem. Couldn't find the fuse anywhere. It is located in the fuse panel on the inside the cab, but on the back side of the panel. You will be able to see it if you crawl underneath with a flashlight. hth.

Sometimes I wonder what these high paid engineers are thinking when they design some of these components

Thanks! That's exactly what I needed to know, repped!

Which one is it on the back side of the panel? Or how do you figure it out? I could just pull them all to see which is bad, but my power outlet hasn't worked in ages.

My step mother legitimately thought you could raise boneless chickens.

I can't remember which one it was. I had the same issues and someone on here told me where it was located. I just ended up pulling until i got the bad one.

This happened to my daughter's car. The cigarette and aux outlet stopped working on her Pontiac Alero. I pulled every fuse and they all looked good and there was no mention of cigarette lighter on the fuse panel.

Sometimes a fuse is bad even if it isn't blown. Been there many times, Had power windows,locks stop working, pull the fuse, not blown, replaced it anyway, and what do ya know? the shit works again.

Hmmn, I have two on the backside of the panel a 10A and a 15A (of course they don't say what they go to and the owners manual says nothing about any fuses on the backside) but the power outlet says 20A right on it, I guess i'll try replacing them one by one as mentioned because they all look good.

if nobody mentioned it yet there is a second small fusebox under the dash near the e-brake release. my ipod charger wasn't working and after replacing one of those it worked.

In my 98 and 99 Dakota's there are only 2 fuse panels. 1 under hood- Fuel pump relays, etc etc. Then, the other, you open the drivers side door, and it's on the side of the dash. I have never looked on the backside of that panel, maybe that is where the fuse for the power outlet is.
