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

Customer reply replied 11 months 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.
Auto Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 11 months 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.

Thanks.
