Can someone tell me which fuse is for the "Always on" outlet up front and in back. I see two in the fuse box, one for the ACC dash and one for the ACC outlet in the console.

I must have burned the always on fuse because the one on the dash and the back are dead.

However, there are fuses for heated mirrors and other stuff I don't have!!

#26 in the Fuse and Fusible Link box in the engine compartment. This fuse is for the rear compartment and lower power outlets only.

There is a cluster of 4 boxes. 3 running parallel with the windscreen and the 4th in the opposite direction. I believe it is the middle box of in the row of 3. It is a 20A fuse.

thanks guys. Is there a table of what each of the engine compartment fuses are?

I looked through the manual, but couldn't find the table. I also did nto see numbers next to any fuses.

I cannot begin to count the number of times I have done that on various things. You would think I would have learned that lesson by now!

Mine came with a blown fuse from the factory, so I'm sure this is a common problem. It never really bothered me because the only thing I ever plug in is my phone. Here's a picture of the location, inside the fuse box closest to the firewall.

Amazing just reading that... I bought 07 X, SE. The first thing I did was plug in my XM, thinking it was on/off plug. NOPe, alway's on.

BUT it was blown too!!!.. 30 amp fuze. Dealer fixed it...

shesh... wonder if more folks with 07, have the same issue.?

I am bringing this post back from the dead.. I have a question about the power outlets.. My outlet in the rear is dead and all the other outlets work just fine.. I checked all the fuses and they are all great.. Is there a separate fuse that controls JUST the rear outlet in the cargo area on a 2005 X?? In the wiring diagram it shows 3 fuses but I can't seem to find the third. I can only find the one for the accessory outlet on the dash and the one for the constant on socket in the dash and center console.. I checked out the back of the socket in the cargo area and it IS plugged in..

Any help would be appreciated..

All those fuses are good to go.. I checked them many times.. I have actually pulled every fuse in all 3 panels just to make sure..

It would take 15 mins to run new wire to the rear power outlet. I'd just do that if you are 1000000% certain it is absolutely NOT a fuse. Grab an in-line fuse holder like this (put a 10-15 amp fuse in it):


Then get to the driver's kick panel and locate the ignition harness like this (ignore the parking light notation..this was a pic for a remote start install):


Now you can either select if you want the socket being constant 12v (always on) or switched 12v (on/off w/ ignition). If you want constant 12v then tap into the GREEN wire. If you want switched 12v then tap into the White w/ Green Stripe wire. Ground your other wire here too. Run the wires to the rear under the carpet/trip panels...cut the wires off the back of the power socket (leaving several inches) then connect your new power wire to the (+) side and your new ground to the (-) side. DONE.

I would too, but do one better and run a nice 10 AWG wire back there so you can run any inverter etc you want without worry. Maybe put in a small fuse block.

Then again my trunk looks like this:

Thanks for the info.. I guess I will just run a new wire back there.. The larger gauge wire is a great Idea..
