Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I see that you have checked the fuses. There is only one fuse fuse these outlet. Also, the front and center outlets may be out, but is the back outlet functioning? I ask this because if the fuse is good, then the likely issue would be the ground, but the rear socket has a completely different ground. If the fuse is good, and the ground is intact, then there has to be an open somewhere in the fuse box. Here, I am providing the electrical diagram for the power outlets along with the location and information for the fuses.

The back outlet also isn't working.
Expert:  Todd M replied 2 months ago.

I understand. If that is the case, then you need to check fuse #1 in the under the hood fuse box. I have sent the location information for this. Be sure to either use a test light or visually inspect by removing it in order to determine if it is sound. If it is sound, then there is an open in the fuse box. The center and front outlets have everything(power and ground in common. The only thing that the rear have in common with them is fuse #1. If the fuse is good, then the issue is going to be an open circuit inside the fuse box.
