    12V outlet in trunk. Fuse?

    1999 GLS sedan

    My trunk outlet went dead. I checked every fuse in the fuse panel with a meter. My cigarette lighter still works. Everything else still works.

    Where is the fuse for that outlet?

    There are actually two 20 amp fuses, as annotated by "A and B", located on the relay/fuse panel under or behind the dashboard, depending on your perspective. In the top photo you can see they are located on the left bottom edge. Sorry about the small image. Hope this helps.

    Disregard the model selection at the top, you actually have to select which series, B5 or B5.5, for the fuse/relay layout. Image represents B5.
