Hi! We are extremely proud new owners of a 2002 yellow, FWD Aztek and are enjoying every minute of it, but have a small issue to ask about. We noticed right away that the accessory ports on the back console and in the rear didn't work, but the front one did. Lately, that has stopped working as well. Any ideas??

Most likely a fuse blew.  Off hand I don't know which one, if I recall correctly there is one in the console and one under the hood that control that.  It could be be either one.  Now, before you rush out an check them, you may want to know why it blew.  An electrical wiring problem could cause that and those fuses will continue to blow until you fix it.  Foreign metallic objects placed inside the receptacle will also short them out.  So, you may want to check that as well.  While you are looking in there, note any evidence of arching.  If you see any "burn" marks, chances are you may have had arching from the power plug to the receptacle.  Some ill-fitting power cords or ones that have been damaged can cause that too.  Also, what is the total amperage (steady and peak) of the item you are trying to run from that port?  If it is overloaded, that will blow the fuse as well.

Thank you so much for the detailed suggestions! We are in process of having the issue checked at the garage from which we bought the Aztek as we couldn't locat the problem ourselves.
