Power Outlet/ No Power


Recommended Posts

If the plug is questionable just put your meter on ohms and go from the fuse to the center of the outlet (positive part). Make sure not to touch the sides of the outlet while touching the center. You should get 0 ohms or close to it. Try both fuse slots since obviously there is no way to know which one goes to the outlet. Then you will know if you got a connector issue or not.

Are you testing the outlet with the key in the on position? Because if I remember correctly the power outlet only gets power when the key is turned on.

on my 99, the cigar/ette lighter only gets power with the key on, the power outlet is always on(key in or not). if memory serves, the power outlet's fuse is under the hood, and the cigar lighter's fuse is in the cab

I just went out and tested it in my truck and your right. Although I had a 94 for a while before I got this 96 and it was the other way around, but it had quite a few chopped up wires in it so maybe the PO rewired it or something for some reason.
