Default Cigarete lighter socket not working

Sorry if this is misplaced, I'm new to the site. Didn't find another appropriate category for the question. I am having trouble with my cigarette lighter sockets (for lack of a better title) not functioning, either the one on the front console, nor the one in the very back. I have a 2001 PT. After searching through the useless manual which refers you to the info on the covers on both the interior and exterior fuse boxes, I still can't decifer which is for these auxillary power plugs. Anyone with any knowledge? Thanks

gahigian, Welcome to the Forum. That said, Crewzin is on his way home to FL from VA, he seems to be our guru when it comes to questions like this. If anyone else has any idea, they'll jump in.

Just an FYI. The rear one is not hot unless the key is on or in the accessory position.

DUH!!! Neither front or rear sockets are hot unless the key is on. If you look on the covers, there is a symbol of a key on each. (Hitting self on forehead)!!!

I'm Back

Did turning the key "ON" solve your problem?

Right you are John. I have two 12V receptacles up front. One at the bottom of the dash and one at the front edge of the floor console. The one in the dash is always HOT.

Without knowing which fuse is for which, if you pick out all the fuses one by one, you'll be able to tell visually if they're bad because the metal will be missing in the very center of the fuse. Likely candidates are the accesory and radio fuses.
