This is not a new charger. I've been using it for 9 months. I just noticed that my cell phone was not charging. Sorry, I don't have another one. I also rechecked the fuses after trying the lighter element again and the fuses were still good but the outlets don't work. I stopped testing to see if it was working with the cellphone charger and tried it with the lighter... still didn't work. What about the ALT fuse? Would that have anything to do with the outage
Sorry, I don't have a voltage meter.
I thought that after replacing the fuses and inserting the lighter element, the socket would work but it doesn't. Right now, it's dark and hard to see the fuse box, located under dash on drivers side.
Let's play devils advocate... if the lighter doesn't work and the fuses are all ok, what would be your next best guess?
I have one last question. When purchasing fuses, are they good and bad fuses, like brands, to buy. I was really surprised after replacing the fuse, it blew again with just the lighter element. It seems so weird.
