Tundra: .My daughter put a key into one of the power outlets

Customer Question

My daughter put a key into one of the power outlets on our 2003 Toyota Tundra.
We have no power to the clock / radio / power outlets / and mirrors.
I've replaced all applicaple fuses and swapped the power outlet relay with one I know to be working, but no luck.
Any ideas?

Thanks for postingDid you check the fuses both under the hood and inside at the left lower dash? One of the fuse boxes has a 30 or 40 amp Power fuse which is larger than the other fuses, has it been checked?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

30 Amp Power fuse under the dash has been replaced and problem persists.
Any further recommendations?

Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.
thanks for the reply, do you have a 12 volt test light or voltmeter, if you can, please measure the voltage to the 40amp 'power outlet' fuse, is there voltage on both ends or the fuse with the fuse in place?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have a 12V voltage / continuity tester. Where do I place the two ends to do the testing?

Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.
with the key on check each end of the fuses, the large fuses have a clear cover that can be removed, the smaller fuses have metal contacts on top that can be used to check both sides of the fuses.
