Just picked up a 2014 C-Max Hybrid today and of course I cant charge my phone in the car as neither of the 12V sockets work, so I figure it is a fuse issue.  Trouble is, I cant find the fuse in all the fuse box diagrams.  They do not call them what I would think, so I need some help in locating them.

Just to be clear, the front outlets only work when the car is on; they are turned off a few minutes after the car is turned off (like the radio).  The outlet in the hatch is hot all the time.

I've had to replace mine.  Its easy to drop something metallic into the outlet that is inside the storage compartment between the seats.  Bye-buy fuse!  There's a wad of paper in there now.

I was looking for the fuse for the 12 volt outlet that is in the back.  I did not see it in the manual.  Any ideas ?  

 

My reason is that I have what I thought was a great fast air pump but it blew the fuse in the front.  I later read a review that it can draw 30 amps on start up and then draw .7 amps if the pressure in the tire is 40+ lbs to start out.  I was curious if the outlet in the back is the same 20 Amps.  Now I am curious if there even is a fuse.  I may not be able to return it because I already threw out the box and cut the power cord to use inside my house. 

 

I am thinking it might be in the manual but it is not called "power point." like the one in the front.

 

Thanks.

 

Here is a link to the review and the product for anyone that may be interested (I do NOT recommend )

Don't know about the fuse either but why not connect it to the power posts under the hood - plenty of current there.  You've already cut the cord so attach some big clamps (maybe from a dead jump starter or 12V inverter) and a fuse and it should go.  Just keep an eye on the pump so it doesn't go up in smoke!  Funny that the pump should fail - it says it is "Built to Last".  They just didn't say how long!  The auto-shutoff does sound nice though.
