I'm out of ideas on how to fix my 12v outlets... None of them work. Cig light, front console, center console, rear cargo area... nothing. I checked the fuses and they are still good, #39 I think and I forget the one for the cigar lighter. Anyone else have this issue? How would you go about troubleshooting this?

I really mean this in all sincerity but, have you turned on the key?

It burns me up that I can't charge my phone when the key is not on. Outside of that, I am not sure where to tell you to start.

ACC relay controls the power to the cig & power outlets, it's powered by a 120 amp fusible link, but it also supplies lots of other things so I expect it may be your relay (or no key in IGN)

a quick method i'd try would be a telecom test toner and wand... it might tell you if the 12V sockets are connected together and how far back toward the relay the wiring is connected. most would use a 12v test light probe, a schematic, and some connector / insulation investigations; it couldn't hurt and would cost next to nothing. I'd guess bad relay or fuse... and test there and work forward.

one thing I dislike about japanese cars - can't charge your cell phone unless you leave the keys in

If the ACC relay was blown, would the car still function?

And yes, I tried with the car running :)

I don't mean to hijack here but i have one 12v outlet not working (center stack left) but all remaining outlets are hot. Are there separate sub fuses for the outlets?

I was searching fuse box, that would explain it. I didn't know the technical term for it.

If you have your owners manual it's located near the back.
Mine only has the location of the blocks, not the specific fuses

On 2000's, the diagram is ON the fuse blox...just sayin.
the cover was missing when I bought the truck

next time, I will fully divulge everything I have attempted when posting a question so I don't get lambasted.

I searched "fuse box diagram". No reason to over-think searches. And I'm 90% sure that that picture I posted is from the owner's manual.
