Default Power outlet in center console not working

Just got the car a month ago, tried to plug my charger in the power oulet in the center console, no power. Works fine from the one in the dash. Is this a fuse issue? Would there be a fuse dedicated to just this outlet because everything else works?

I can tell you the fuse for the dash plug and center comp plug are separate, as I had the opposite happen with my car. Pull the fuse for the dash and replace. Otherwise it could be unplugged or just bad.

It's most likely the fuse, another possibility if someone removed the center console before they could of forgotten to hook up the connection for the 12v outlet

The 2nd sheet shows both fuses at the BEC.

In case you haven't check, the center consul is fuse #64, and the dash power point is fuse #61 Both are in the power distribution box, under the hood, and they're both 20 amp.

Thanks guys. I had the same issue with the center console. I had checked the connections this weekend and was going to replace the socket. It was just a blown fuse. Save me money & time.

also be sure to keep the plug on it because sometimes coins can get inside of the socket and cause the fuse to blow thats why they have the nifty cover

Ding, Ding, Ding, we have a winner!. Checked my outlet, darm Abraham Lincoln stuck in there. Pulled him out with some tape and a pencil. And now the outlet works. Man did I feel dumb for this being such an obvious thing to check.

Thanks for pointing this out, I like using this outlet much better to charge my phone as opposed to the on in the dash.
