Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester? A few simple tests will reveal exactly what the cause is.
To eliminate a tripped GFCI receptacle, look around for a receptacle with a test and reset buttons. Push the reset if found. If that doesn't resolve the issue, you'll need to pick up a tester. I suggest a Volt/Con type. Easy to use and available at any home center for around $20.00.
When you have one just return and we can continue.
Very good and a Happy Easter to you.
OK, did you get a Volt/Con?
Does do resistance (ohms setting)? I need to know what you're using to direct you.
Not what was suggested but we can use it. Ho to a known working outlet to test and see how it works. Test hot to neutral, hot to ground and neutral to ground. Let me know what you see.
Short slot is he hot
Long slot is the neutral
Small hole is the ground.
Did you test a known working outlet or one of the dead ones?
Go to the panel and one by one turn the brakes fully off and then back on. Then test the outlets again. Where is the panel?
To verify the circuit is on at the panel. Open the garage panel and test each breaker to the neutral bar(white wires). The tester you have may be a problem because the leafs are short. If you can't reach the neutrals, Bo hot to any ground.
Sorry to say that with the tester you got troubleshooting will be almost impossible. You should have purchased the one suggested, Volt/Con type. To continue you'll need to get that type only. We can can continue when you have it.otherwise I'll opt out.
