    Default Front Aux power fuse location for 2003 Avalanche [Resolved]

    2003 Avalanche. I have a cigarette lighter and auxillary power outlet in the front. The cigarette lighter outlet works, but the aux power's fuse blew out when I was using an automatic air pump. I've searched the fuse panels under the hood and inside the Avalanche, no luck finding the blown fuse. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

    Hey Mike, I'll have to poke around mine tonight. I thought the aux power outlet fuse was under the hood though.

    2004 Savana 2500. Same problem - the driver side cig lighter fuse is, IIRC, #30 in the underhood fuse block, but the 'auxillary power outlet', or cig lighter on the passenger side of the dash, does not have power (did before) and no fuse to be found, either in observation of vehicle or in manual.

    Any input on this would be appreciated.

    Hmmm seems to me that I remember coming across a fuse for that when I was looking for something else, I'll have to poke around in my truck tommorow.

    The fuse for the aux power outlet located in your center console should be located under your hood in the fuse box. It is labeled "AUX PWR" on the label on the underside of the cover It's on the right side of the diagram just above the centre of the box. Hope this helps

    And so it was - #29. Thanks much.

    On the Savana van that under-hood fuse box cover, held on by four latches, is a real bear to unlatch, and then a real puzzle to extricate the cover from the maze of hoses, wires and other parts in that area. I have fairly strong finger and hands but couldn't quite get the right position to apply the strength to unlatch the thing - especially in this less-than-warm weather.

    Fired up the oxy-acetylene torch and bent an old blade-tip screwdriver into a "J" tool to reach under the latches and unlatch the lid. It worked OK, to the extent that unlatching one at a time is of much use. Guess its better than bare handed and so that tool now lives in the jack compartment with my fuse kit.

    Then there is the matter of the little plastic fuse extraction tool (that came in a fuse kit bought at WalMart) that is too wide to pull the fuses from the fuse block due to the raised plastic brackets that surround the fuse kinda like this: [===]. While needle nose pliers or a large hemostat work OK, I wanted a dedicated tool that could be kept with the fuse kit in the van, separate from my tool box, and could also be used to pull fuses from the fuse block under the driver's seat, where pliers and hemos are to "tall".

    The fix there was to narrow the plastic fuse puller tool on coarse sand paper (belt sander) until it fits the fuses.

    Hope this helps someone having the same problems - I'm glad to have found this forum!

    Hope you and yours have a safe and happy New Year!
