I need to find why it said on dash no bus and no fire

None of my outlets/ cigarett lighter are working in my 2007 mitsubishi outlander. I suspected a bad fuse but the only fuse box I can find is the one under the hood and I dont see a fuse for the outlets there. Is there another fuse box in the cabin hidden somewhere?

Usually it's all in the wrist, but during cold temps I have to click the key in the ignition forward once and let it sit for 30 seconds before I try turning the key again. It'll spring back, and I immediately turn the key for the car to start. It's been doing that for about a year or longer. Today, with outdoor temps about 20, nothing. Any ideas what I need to replace? I called three mechanics and got three answers.

I looked for loose connections ect. Possible vaccuum problem??

Every time I go to put fuel in my old girl, she takes about 2 litres before the pump nozzle starts clicking and whatnot. Fuel generally starts spitting out at around the $3.00 mark. She's pretty much empty, so either I have a blockage in my input line, or a hell of a lot of pressure in the tank. I've tried to release some pressure by removing the #32 fuel pump release fuse while running the engine, to no avail. I'd like to fix it myself, if possible; but this would be my first time at getting into the fuel tank side of things, so any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers,

My left rear electronic door lock works intermittently, whether being locked or unlocked from the front passenger locks or the remote. Weather does not seem to be a factor. Is there anything I can do to fix it? If it requires professional repair, how much should that be?

both the drivers side tail light and drivers side front running light are both inop. I have checked both bulbs and inspected the fuse for the circuit, all of which are in good repair. Any recomendations on how to proceed from here?

I was very cold the other day with a 1/8 of a tank of gas.
I started the car ok but it began to run very rough.
I have only had the car for a couple of weeks.
I used to have this trouble many years ago with other older cars. I was thinking that there was much condesation in the tank and went into gas line.
Sometimes the car will run really good and other times, the engine will hesitate with no power giving it the gas.
I was thinking that the fuel filter may still have moisture in it. I put Isopropyl gas treatment into a tank of gas, which hasn't eliminated the problem yet.
Where is the fuel filter located?
Please help.

No sound or movement when pushing the button to vent or open. I tried the steps in the manual to reset, but did not work. Is there an easy way to trouble shoot?
