the cig lighteer and the charging plug inside the console of my Acura 2003 RL isn't working. I can't find the fuse in either the inside or under hood fuse boxes. What can I do to fix it?

Hello I will help you with your question,

There are two fuses in the underdash fuse block to check, the #4 and #16 red 10 amp fuses both have to be intact for the port to get power.

Please let me know if you can check those

Thank you

All of those fuses have been checked. However, I just tried again and now the radio needs a code. If you are certain that #4 or #16 is the right fuse, I will go and buy new ones and change them anyway.

Meanwhile...I have to find the radio code too.

#4 also powers the radio. To check a fuse you need to touch the test points on the back of the fuse with a 12 volt testlight or voltmeter to see that there is 12 volts at BOTH test points with the key on.

The radio code should be in the owners manual on a business card.

Please let me know if you have power at the fuses.

Thank you
