I blew the fuses for both the Cig Lighter Outlet and the Aux Power Outlet. I've replaced both 15A fuses in fuse panel on right side of dash.

The CIg Lighter Outlet works, the Aux Power Outlet still does not work.

Anyone know where other fuses / fusable links for this might be, or what else could be wrong?

Any help appreciated.

eh I say just go trade the truck in for a new dodge..better quality :smt003

no but seriously..hmmm thats odd..you replaced the fuse...did you plug something in(im sure you did) and then check the fuse again to make sure it didnt blow? If so I'd try putting in a bigger fuse and see how that handles.. :smt003

Only one of the 12v plugs is always hot. You prolly know this but thought I would give it a stab anyway. There are more fuses under the hood and maybe by the glove box. Oh wait I think I am confusing the glove box location with the frontier.

scr38 on CT says that there is another fuse for it in the fuse box behind the battery - two fuses for one circuit - never would have thought they would do that on purpose. oh well...

and, Adam, that's how I got in trouble. put a 20 A, then a 30 A (I know, I'm an EE and know better), and that's when it went totally dead.

Today I routed a separate supply direct from the battery to handle my inverter - 40 A - that should do it until I get my main 1/0 AWG feed back there for the stereo and all...

Thanks, guys, for the comments...

The fuse is designed to protect both the device, and the wire. Putting too much power through a wire can cause the casing to melt among other unfortunate possible results.

Yeah I know that..I never put a 40amp fuse in replac for a 20amp..that spells disaster!! but if something keeps shorting out, I bump it up usualy no more than 5. I never forgot the guage wire used can only handle so much!!
