My van's ACC sockets(front and back)are not working. I then changed out fuse #9-then the radio does not work. The front ACC socket has been lose for years but has always worked. I had friends in my van and their kid had a power converter plugged into rear ACC. Could this be from that or the lose ACC socket in the front. I have blown 5 #9 fuses. Any suggestions.

    I put a new fuse in #9, & 11. The radio came back on. Then i put a car charger for my iphone in the ACC socket and blew the fuse- no radio again.
    How to you get to the other end of the ACC socket?

    Certain types of car chargers and power inverters are not compatible with the power outlet and will continue to blow fuses. To get to the front acc. outlets , start from the bottom.Go to dealer parts department and inquire about price of accessory outlet and ask if they can print-out the parts 'exploded view' , most won't mind doing this and that will give you a better idea of how to get the power outlet tightened up. Eight years at dealership- one faulty power outlet. They do come loose but that is not a funtional issue.
