2005 Camry: Both Power Sockets don't work

Hi everyone,

So I've looked everywhere on the internet and searched this forum for an answer for my question but I can't seem to find an answer. I just bought a 2005 Toyota Camry LE and both the accessory powers (12V) don't work. I've changed the fuse for the CIG in the fuse box under the driver's seat, but the power sockets still don't work. I'm new to fixing cars and I don't think this problem is worth taking it to a mechanic (until I've tried everything I can). Any ideas? Pictures would be amazing because, like I said, I'm new to this.

I heard there is a Power Socket fuse (from another post in this forum) as well, can someone tell me where that is? The fuse box is all abbreviated, so I'm not sure if power socket is the same as "Power 1" "Power 2" etc.

Thanks in advance


Edit: When I bought the car, there was no owner's manual. This is part of the problem...I don't know which fuse is which!

Then you pull each fuse, one by one, and look at them. Studying the diagram on the fuse cover could be helpful. You look at the fuses under the dash and the fuses under the hood. There are no fuses under the seat. If you don't know what to look for in a fuse, then use your multimeter to check continuity.

Bad fuses look like this :) Remember to set your Multimeter to Oms and touch the black lead to one side and the red lead to the other.

One by one did the trick. Thanks for the pictures. Gosh, I feel so new to this.
