    I have no power to the cigarette lighter and auxillary power outlet. Haynes Manual wiring diagrams don't show these. Does anyone have one? I have confirmed 30A fuse is good and 13V confirmed across the fuse. Wire plugs for these are two wires one Blue w/White stripe and other Black. Thanks!

    Have you verified the wires are plugged in to the outlets?

    Yes. No power to the harness wire connectors at the outlets.

    mrwitty_1, thanks for your response to my post. As I follow your wiring diagram, there is a direct connection from the engine compartment high voltage fuse box to the cigar lighter and aux. power outlet. I'll check the wiring harness at the fuse box for the lt blue w/white stripe wire to ensure a solid connection with the fuse connectors. Then, attempt to determine where the lt blue w/white stripe wire passes through the firewall to determine if there is a wire damage or short. Finally, I will check below the dashboard instrument panel for any wire abrasion or breakage. If I fail to determine where the short is, I will have to run a new wire to the cigar lighter and aux power socket. Please let me know if you feel there is a more likely cause for loss of power to these items and an easier process to identify the root cause of the problem. Thks!
