Hi there,It looks like fuse #15, I believe it's in the box inside the car but cannot be 100% sure. The wiring diagram isn't very clear on the actual box it is in.It may also be labeled F42Let me know
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
F42 is a 20 amp fuse and it is ok. Any other ideas as to a solution to the problem?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 10 months ago.
The other fuse is F44 but it looks like it's the power source for the rear power outlets.Are both power points out? Lighter and the power supply for the 12 volt charger/plug?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The problem was the fuse in the charger to the phone, not the car. Sorry
