    Default 12v power outlet problem

    I need some help figuring out how to get at the front 12v power outlet. It is not working and the fuse is OK. I can't seem to get the bottom escutchen off to get at the bugger. Any help would be appreciated! This is on a 2005 CRV-SE

    If the Gen II is like Gen 1, the socket is holding the escutcheon plate on.

    Saw something on here about a tsb regarding power sockets shorting out, think it was for the 05 or 06. Might want to do a search, are you still under warranty?

    Are you sure about the warranty? You do get a 3% warranty extension as a part of the odometer settlement. (Not much, but it may help)

    Have you tried a device with a different style end to the plug? The TSB is about some devices not being compatible with the socket and the socket may be replaced with a different design, for free, as a result.

    Found it. It is NOT a TSB. It is simply advise for techs.

    Go to page 4..and get pictures.
    Power Socket replacement


    Accessory Power Socket Keeps Blowing Fuse

    NOTE: This article applies to Japan-built ’03–06
    Accords, Japan-built ’01–05 Civics, ’06 Civics,
    ’02–06 CR-Vs, ’07 Fits, and ’01–06 Insights.
    Got a vehicle in your shop because the accessory
    power socket keeps blowing the fuse? The reason
    may be a compatibility problem between the
    power socket and the power adapter that’s being
    used. The original power socket has a center tip
    that sticks out. With some power adapters, if the
    center tip on the adapter gets pushed in too far, it
    causes a short in the adapter and the fuse blows.
    To fix this problem, check to see if the power
    socket has a center tip that sticks out. If it
    does, then replace the power socket with
    P/N 39624-SZ3-L01, H/C 8445454, and replace
    the fuse. This new style power socket has a
    recessed center tip that doesn’t cause the power
    adapter to short when you plug it in. If the power
    socket already is this new type, then look for
    other possible causes for the blown fuse.

    I can replace the socket myself I just can't get the bottom console off. There is a trick to it, but I'm not getting it!
