Question Power Outlets Died

Both interior Power Outlets...the unswitched ones front and back...have no juice. I know for sure the front one was working two days ago because I always have my cell phone charger plugged in and it has an LED that shows it has power. Today...nothing. So I figured I blew the fuse somehow. Checked fuse #19 under the hood and it's good. What should I check next?
Thanks!
Bill

There also another fuse block under the steering wheel. I forget which circuit those are on. (I think the unswitched ones run first through IOD, then via accessory? I'm probably wrong)

I checked the interior fuze cover to see if any of those fuses were marked as having anything to do with the power outlets and it didn't seem like they did. Guess I could pull and check all of them just in case.
Thanks!

Found this on PT Do-It-Yourself.net:

Recheck fuse #19 (20amp) in the PDC. If it's ok and both power outlets are dead it's most likely an issue with the circuit wiring. It is not likely to be the ignition switch since the front power outlet is always hot regardless of ignition switch position and the rear power outlet is controlled by the ignition switch.

Quick update:
Pulled dash to access front Power Outlet. Had 12V on connector that attaches to the back of the plug. Inserted and removed connector several times to get rid of any corrosion that might have caused the lack of power. PO works fine now.

The rear PO still doesn't work. I'll have to pull that panel and try the same fix back there.

Well now both of mine stopped working. Love It!

The one closest to the radio didn't work when I got the car and now all of a sudden the lower outlet doesn't work. WTF?

It was working fine less that 7 hours before hand....
