Hi all, just joined the forum. I have a 2008 Camry and the center console outlet stopped working. The owner manual identifies two fuses: 28 "CIG" and 29 "PWR OUTLET." I only know of one outlet in the car, the one in the center console. Anyway, I replaced both fuses but it's still not working. Any suggestions?

Does anything else electrical on the car not work?

It has happened the outlet socket is bad. Check if the wire to the socket is getting power.

There are no other electrical problems. I tested the outlet with a voltmeter and it was dead.

The same circuit powering the outlet fuse powers other items. If all other circuits are working OK and fuse is OK, check power at wire to socket.

The outlet may have a fusible link that blows if too much current is drawn. If so you will need to replace the outlet.

Search the internet and Youtube for possible videos and post on "removing 2008 Camry power outlet."

Determine if you can do this job. Otherwise find someone who can.

Note if it is a failed socket, you will need a replacement.

1. Socket = outlet, right?
2. I tested the outlet with a voltmeter and got no reading. I read somewhere online (the only way I would know it because Iím not mechanical at all) that that means wiring leading to the outlet has somehow gone wrong (and itís not the outlet or socket that needs replaced). Is that right?

Socket = outlet.

The outlet may have a built-in fuse which could be blown. Someone would check for voltage at the wire connected to the outlet. If power, the outlet is bad.
