    I thought I was going crazy because I checked under the dash fuse box first and found a fuse labeled "CIG". Thinking that meant cigarette I checked it. Not blown.
    Checked a few others labeled power and accessory. Not blown. Checked a few under the hood as well and nothing.

    Finally figured it out!! It's the fuse labeled "PWR OUTLET". It is a 15A fuse.

    Hope figuring this out will help someone else save some time.

    Weird. "CIG" is supposed to run the cigarette lighter.

    I had a real pain with that one. You would think that the 15A pwr out was for the 12V Aux out and the other 15A for CIG out. Two separate circuits. At least you fixed it.

    I am actually going to be doing this with one of mine soon for charging the phone if needed when the truck is off.

    1. Remove the wire that is currently tied to the center of the cig ligher accessory outlet.
    2. Find a source that is power all the time. I'm going to look in the fuse box first. If found then use a Bussmann BP/HHH ATM Add-A-Fuse and tie the wire to the middle prong of the cig lighter accessory outlet.

    I had the same issue with my power outlets/usb going out. The fuse box in my Tundra no longer has a fuse labeled as 'PWR OUTLET' and I've checked most of them. Can't find it. Any ideas?

    Did you check the fuse box under the driver side dash? There is a 15amp power outlet labeled fuse position located there.

    Yes, csuviper nailed it in his original post. I just didn't read far enough back in the postings.

    Question, I need mine on all the time as well for charging phone. Why not just remove old fuse and run hot wire (with fuse ) to old fuse location?
