What could be causing the front axillary fuse to keep blowing? Even bigger fuses blow.

fuses blow from over current( dead short) they are rated at lower than what is required so that the wire doesn't burn
If you keep putting in bigger fuses without fixing the dead short, eventually the wire will melt the plastic insulation off and the vehicle will burn

a: FSM real expensive
b: hope has it.

which one, there are up to 3?
quotes from FSM

located near the bottom of the instrument panel center stack area, below the radio.
A front console mounted power outlet is standard equipment and a rear cargo area power outlet is optional equipment on this model. The front console mounted power outlet is mounted inside the center console. This outlet can be used as a cigar lighter or power outlet, but only has 12 volt battery voltage when the ignition is in the ON or ACC positions. The rear power outlet is installed in the right rear quarter trim panel, near the spare tire jack.

amazing huh? and ive not a clue which one fails or what you wish to do with it, (No problem stated, no job stated, or anything)

2007 and newer the wiring is tricky. I have 08 , and with full docs.

Cigarette lighter blowing fuses

some cig lighter outlets have a U shaped + center pin.
Sometime yer plug's - will engage it. ooops . Look for the two sides of the U and mark the edge of the outlet with red nail polish. Then when inserting the plug with a side pin, orient it away from the paint. Keep more fuses in the glove box

Outlet fuses keep blowing with inverter use

it could have a fault and thats why it's blowing the fuse, inverters can wear out and the parts may need replacing the capacitors the voltage regulator chips all these parts have to be taken into account, this parts don't last for ever they need replacing. capacitors can last upwards of 12000 hours but electric jolt and what you are use to be powered adds more drain on the electronics most inverters you can get at most 5 years out of them but it really depends on what you use on them, and if you useing it to its max or near max all the time it will wear out, then blow fuse

Both of my front Power/cigarette lighter outlets give no power?

I do not have a diagram for this but : Lighter outlets are a "high draw" item which will be served by a circut breaker, not a regular fuse. Circut breakers are small silver plug in items found on your fuse panel. Both units may be on different lines also because of "HI draw". I'ts also not really difficult to make a new circut for this, to add outlets where you need them, or to replace missing ones.

Aux. Power Outlet

the problem is always the lighter or lighter receptacle

Aux. Power Outlet

The two outlets are on two different fuses. The one in the front of the console I believe is labeled C/LTR and the fuse for the other is labeled AUX PWR. They are both located in the fuse/junction block in the right side door opening.

I would check them both as I may have stated the labels wrong.

Good Luck

Navigation system, radio, front power outlet failure

The solution is to buy a new mini fuse (Blue #15) at an autonation or similar. Open the passenger side kick plate fuse box and pull out the fuse in position #9 (upper most left fuse). You will need needle nose pliers or tweezers etc... Insert new fuse and you are done. 50 cent repair and 30 seconds spent screwing with it. Enjoy! Oh, and don't worry about blowing it again. Best I can say is when starting the car, unplug the power sucking device like a radar. Once car is on you can re-insert it the radar. The initial jolt of powering everything on all at once is what blew your fuse in the first place. Get a few additional fuses to have on hand just in case.
