    My power ports are both dead at the bottom of the center dash area. Yesterday I verified that the wires are all plugged in correctly on the back side. Cigarette lighter has power and works fine for charging devices.

    Anyone know if there is a fuse for the lower two ports? Where is it?

    Thnx buddy, I’m going to try the jumper method. I like the idea of having power there with or without the ignition on.

    Well, I tried the jumper and the outlets are still dead. I need to open up the lower center dash again and check for power.

    Per that first link I posted, it sounds like there is a fusible link in the actual connectors for the power ports. That's why I was saying you might try just snipping off one of those connectors and put female spades on them and see if there is power that way.
