    I think i Might blown the fuse for the 120 V power adapter, does anybody know where is this located so i can check it? Thanks

    By the way, i am curious really what is the purpose of this 120V outlets, does this mean i can connect anythin that is 110V? if so can i get an adaptor for a 2 prone or 3 prone connection?

    Thanks

    I'm confused....

    Are you referring to the power outlet in the bed? Because, the 1st gen tacomas didn't have that (and since you posted this in the 1st gen section).

    Or are you referring to outlets inside the cab? (cigarette lighter, etc)

    Or what exactly do you mean?

    According to one of gmata's earlier posts it's a 2002 Taco.

    (Hint for gmata: Fill out your profile)

    I'm confused like Janster is - there's no such thing as an OEM 120V / 110V power outlet in a pre-2005 Taco. If you have such an outlet, it probably means a previous owner installed an aftermarket inverter somewhere.

    OK sorry guys, i have filled my profile.

    I am really new to Tacoma's and i didn't knew that those where not 120V there is a black Cap around one of those that say 120V maybe somebody just put it in there.

    Any ways, I need to check the location of the fuse for the 2 bottom outlets, the top one is working but the bottom 2 are not.

    Thanks

    I've got a theory (and I can't get to my '01 - '04 Tacos at the moment to confirm it) ....

    The owners manual mentions that the two lower power outlets are 12V, with a maximum rated limit of 120 watts output.

    Could you be referring to a cover cap that says '120W', and you've misread it as '120V'?

    The two lower power outlets draw power off the 15A PWR OUTLET fuse. This is located in the fuse box in the engine bay, driver's side.

    There is also a Power Outlet Relay in that same box that could be bad.

    I have the same problem with my '09 Taco. My chargers don't light up when I plug in the 120V in the cab (not the bed). I checked all the 15 fuses and none of them are blown. I already looked in the driver side box and the engine and all I see are 15s no 15A.
