12v not working...


New member
My 98 obs has two 12v outlets. Neither work. Previous owner said they never worked for him. Fuse checks out. Any ideas where to start looking?

Everything connected behind the socket itself? Where's the 2nd one? In the hatch area? I have a spare one of those if you need parts.

The rear is on the passenger side right by the hatch. I'm gunna tear it apart tomorrow.

So I found a few free wires.... one yellow one black and poof it works, I have no clue if those were suppose to go to it but oh well!

I have a feeling they may have been unplugged if the radio trim had ever been removed to change out the head unit.


The wires I used are the yellow and black. But if memory serves correct the clip with both wires is suppose to run the 12v.....

I think you can use both. I believe there were a couple different options as far the style of 12v socket, at least that's what I've found. So there are different ways the wires clip on.
