2009 Honda Accord under-dash fuse boxCigarette lighter/power accessory socket will not work. Have changed out the fuses from the driver side fuse box, the under hood fuse box looks fine. Was wondering if there was something I am missing. Was unable to get the under hood fuse out of the box, kind of just eye balled it with a flashlight.

Front Power Accessory Socket Testing

NOTE: If the front power accessory socket and console power accessory socket do not work, check the No. 18 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver’s under-dash fuse/relay box and ground (G503) first.

1.Remove the center console panel.
2.Disconnect the 2P connector (A) from the front accessory power socket (B).
3.Inspect the connector terminals to be sure they are all making good contact.

◦If the terminals are bent, loose, or corroded, repair them as necessary and recheck the system.
◦ If the terminals look OK, go to step 4.

4.Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
5.Measure the voltage between the front accessory power socket 2P connector terminal No. 1 and body ground. There should be battery voltage.

◦ If there is battery voltage, go to step 6.
◦ If there is no battery voltage, check for:

– Blown No. 23 (15 A) fuse in the driver’s under-dash fuse/relay box.

– Faulty front accessory power socket relay.

– Poor ground (G601).

– An open in the wire.
6.Check for continuity between the front accessory power socket terminal No. 2 and body ground. There should be continuity.

◦ If there is continuity, replace the power socket; go to step 7.
◦ If there is no continuity, check for:

– Poor ground (G503).

– An open in the wire.

When the fuse checks out OK, the next thing to check would be the Accessory Port/Socket relay. The relay is also located in the under-dash fuse box. See number 4.

If the relay checks OK, Check the wiring harness, connections and the Accessory port/socket itself.
