Is it the two in the rear that are not working?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
To my knowledge, there's only one in the rear cargo area. Unless you consider the one for the trailer hitch. Also, the power outlet in the center console does not work.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 month ago.

Ok, start by checking fuse #13 in the fuse box inside the car. This sends power to 2 of the power outlets.

Please take a look and let me know. It's my mistake, they call the console and the one in the rear both rear outlets.

The fuse should be labeled as #13.

let me know.
