If none of your car’s power outlets are working, the first thing I would check would be the fuses. A blown fuse is the most common reason as to why interior electronics fail, so a simple replacement of an inexpensive fuse may be all that is required. Refer to the owner’s manual for specific instructions on replacing fuses. If you are not comfortable in taking on such tasks, a knowledgable technician, such as one from YourMechanic, should be able to perform tests on your car’s electrical components relatively simply.
