12 volt power outlet not working now

Asked by Nov 29, 2010 at 06:11 PM about the 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a cb for my 2004 wrangler.  I must have reversed the positive and negative wires
from the cb to my 12 volt cigarette plug adapter. I know I blew the fuse on the cb and
changed it.  Now the 12 volt Plug on my jeep is not working.  The cigarette lighter on it is still
working.  I assume I blew the fuse on the 12 volt power on the jeep  too.

I am not sure which fuse to check. I did check under the hood in that fuse box.  Which one
is it?

Thank you in advance.

Im a owner operator,so I know CB,s,if cig lighter is still working you blew the CB,you can have it fixed,just have them fix it so it to hook up on eather side pos to neg-neg to pos,then you wont have to worrie about this happening again.

CB blew a fuse. I changed it and it works. Cigarette lighter works. It is the 12 volt power receptacle next to the cigarette lighter on the jeep that is not working. I am not sure which is the fuse for it.

OK,the fuses should be numbered and say what each one is for,if not you can pull one out at a time and check it to see if blown,do 1 fuse at a time.if no fuses are blown,it could have blone a fuseable link underdash,it still may just be a blown fuse.

it also has a fuse box under dash on drivers side.
