Customer: 2013 scion

Thanks for posting

it's most likely just a blown fuse caused by something that was plugged in to the socket. Locate the fuse panel inside, it should be at the left side of the dash either under a plastic cover or just under the dash, remove the fuse box cover, there is a fuse diagram on it, match the diagram up with the fuses and locate the 'POWER outlet" fuse and try a new one in it's place.

If there is no power outlet fuse replace the "CIG" fuse.
